Managing general agent (MGA) CHES Special Risk has put out a recruitment call for commercial underwriters, as it aims to develop its presence in western Canada.

“We at CHES are a highly collaborative team of smart professionals. Together, we aspire to build a company where people are valued for who they are and what they contribute. Our goal is for everyone to feel supported & challenged and be proud to be part of CHES Special Risk,” the company said in a release.

The MGA’s recruitment call comes after CHES Special Risk opened a new office in Vancouver in November. Spencer Denton was tapped to serve as branch manager of the new location.

In a release, CHES Special Risk listed the benefits it offers to its underwriters, which include flexible works hours; maternity and paternity top ups; covered dental, orthodontics, and eyewear benefits; annual fitness subsidy; and life & disability insurance. The MGA has also promised its underwriters an internal mentoring program and payment for any continued education they may take, on top of internal promotion opportunities.

My experience working with Ches and specifically Alex Blair Johns has been first class. In the midst of a hardening market, Ches has demonstrated to me that they are a partner committed to serve the Brokerage community and its Clients by positioning themselves as a solutions oriented leader.

Over all it's a very good company. I have brought Life science insurance from them and I am very much happy with them.
