Leah Jones, Assistant underwriter, New Ocean Underwriting
Leah Jones joined New Ocean Underwriting in July 2017 as a graduate with no insurance experience. As a newbie in the industry, she has shown a great willingness to learn and develop quickly, and she has become an expert in underwriting for two of the company’s core business classes: residential property owners and home insurance. Among her recent accomplishments, Jones was part of the team that represented New Ocean at the BIBA conference, where the company was able to connect with new brokers and build a stronger network overall, resulting in a profitable book of business.
Jones is also actively involved in the company’s graduate recruitment programme, using her skills and experiences to help potential recruits understand the opportunities offered by New Ocean and the industry as a whole. She recently completed her first CII exam and is looking forward to accomplishing the next set of certifications.
