Job Description

Cottingham & Butler was built upon driven, ambitious people like yourself. “Better Every Day” is not just a slogan, it is a promise we make to ourselves and our clients every day!


Our Captives & Programs division is growing and as a result, will be adding 3 program underwriters this year. These positions are responsible for handling everything from assessing risks, developing and negotiating premiums, and managing relationships with our sales team in order to ensure that we are providing appropriate options to clients. The ideal candidate will have commercial P&C underwriting experience. We have a lot of clients in the transportation industry. Commercial transportation insurance experience helpful, but not required. These positions are based in our Dubuque, IA office. Relocation assistance is available.


Our Captives & Programs department provides insurance products that allow mid-sized companies the ability to buy insurance like the largest companies in the country, without being exposed to catastrophic financial risk that could put them out of business. Our programs combine strategic risk transfer mechanisms with a proactive focus on improving safety and aggressively managing claims. 


Why make the move? Our underwriters say they love being able to see and impact the entire process. They aren’t just hanging out behind the scenes- they actually get to meet the clients. They love being able to partner with our producers to find solutions for clients and having the flexibility to create new programs and solutions if there isn’t one that meets the needs of the clients. The opportunities to grow are endless.


Does this sound like something you'd enjoy? We'd love to talk with you!
