Financial Lines underwriters work with lines of business such as Directors and Officers Liability, Employment Practices Liability, Crime and Fiduciary, Errors & Omissions, Management/Professional Liability, and Cyber. You will be working with a team of underwriters who will provide you with the guidance and training to ensure a long term, successful career in the insurance industry.

  • Opportunities to interact with senior leadership

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.
