Full day - release is available for study towards relevant examinations, such as the ACii (www.cii.co.uk) . Lloyd?s Policy Signing Office: Lloyd's Policy Signing Office (LPSO) is the biggest Company department and is mainly situated in Chatham. It is responsible for checking and validating all Lloyd's policies and ensuring accurate accounting for premiums and claims between underwriters and brokers.
(http://www.lloyds.com/The-Market/I-am-a/Other/Committees-,-a-,-associations/XISXCS ) After a broker has managed to get a slip fully subscribed he will send the relevant documentation to the LPSO. Policy examiners check the slip and proposal for any discrepancies, and then issue an authenticated policy. This will be sent to the client's broker, accompanied by a premium advice note to inform the client of the charge for his insurance cover. LPSO is split into three sections - marine, non - marine and special adjustments and renewals, and 0 and A level recruits may enter any of these three areas as trainee policy examiners. GCSE entrants will work as support staff. The work is of a clerical nature, with extensive use of data inputting, word and excel.
It involves checking the date, policy number and certain prerequisites. The data will then be entered on the computer by a direct - day entry clerk, to ensure that the policy is properly recorded and the financial transaction has taken place. The position requires education to GCSE standard, with keyboard typing skills of 40 - 50 words per minute. There is a possibility of moving on to policy examining, but such moves are unusual.
