About Superscript

Superscript is redefining business insurance - providing cover that is effortless, fair, and flexible - just the way it should be.

We leverage data and the latest tech to help innovative businesses find the cover they need - clearing the way for them to go all in and achieve great things. With our bespoke subscription-based cover designed to meet the complex, fast-changing needs of small businesses, we’ve enabled customers to scale from pre-seed stage to unicorn status and beyond.

Earlier this year, we closed our Series A funding round and we’re backed by the best - with investors including BHL Holdings (owner of Compare the Market), Beazley and Concentric. This investment will fuel our continued growth in existing and new territories and enable us to invest further in our Enterprise offering. It also means that there’s never been a more exciting time to join us... This is where you come in!

About the role

Working within a diverse and talented team, Account Executives are the central cogs in the Enterprise wheel. You’ll represent the company in discussions with multinational clients, understanding and advising on solutions to their needs and explaining coverage intricacies and details. You’ll also be negotiating with underwriters daily to ensure that we provide our clients with market-leading insurance solutions.

  • You possess a good knowledge of working with commercial insurance products
  • You've got excellent verbal and written communication skills and the ability to empathise with customer needs
  • You're highly organised meticulous and able to multitask
  • Lloyd’s and North American experience would come in handy, but is not essential

In return, we offer you:

  • A competitive salary and the ability to grow your career at the UK’s leading Insurtech
  • An amazing team and founders, supportive board and investors
