We offer an opportunity for you to work with other underwriting, risk control and claim consultants to meet the evolving insurance needs of our clients. CNA’s underwriters are responsible for selecting and pricing risks that have profit potential. The process requires underwriters to evaluate a business by reviewing industry, business and government data, then deciding whether to accept or decline the risk. The underwriter is also responsible for pricing, as well as maintaining a steady flow of new and renewal business. Our effective career pathing programs, including our leadership tracks, offer you the opportunity to grow your career at CNA.
**We are targeting a start date of June 2023 for this trainee cohort.**
