Simon

Underwriting.

"The Together team has a family feel with a friendly and trusting culture, but still very professional. It’s such a great place to work!"

What does an Underwriting Relationship Manager do?
It’s my job to visit and speak to brokers who place business with us. I help them work through their applications so they can submit them to us to completion.

What do you like best about your role?
A few things really. Meeting brokers face-to-face is an enjoyable part of the job. Many are people I’ve known for years and built strong relationships with. Being on the road also means every day brings different people and different places. And there’s a certain sense of satisfaction helping a broker or applicant achieve a positive result, or to overcome an issue or challenge.

And what don’t you like?
Getting up at 5am during winter to meet a client at 9am, though it’s definitely easier in the summer.

What qualities do you need to do your job well?
Good communications skills are essential, along with an eye for detail, as when underwriting cases you have to review detailed items such as payslips, credit searches and property valuations. With all the travel, you have to be well organised and punctual. Plus, you need to be able to work under pressure, as our brokers rely on us to be accurate and quick with our decisions.

Describe the Together culture?
It’s a bit like a family. There are lots of colleagues who’ve been with the company a long time, many over 10 years. This creates a friendly and trusting culture, but still very professional. It’s such a great place to work!

Any tips for someone joining Together?
Work hard, be committed and it will pay off.

Outside of work, what do you get up to?
My main passion is music, and I’ve collected records and DJ’d since my teens. Strictly vinyl though! And I love house music, mainly the classic stuff. I’ve also been known to spend time playing Call of Duty (on the Play Station).

Tell us something not many people know about you
I have a keen interest in the paranormal and love visiting haunted locations. I’ve even spent a few nights ghost hunting. Weird, I know.
