Assistant Underwriter

About us

Mitti Insurance is a joint venture between SafetyCulture and QBE Insurance. This joint venture brings more value to the customer than a traditional insurer-customer relationship as it aims to improve the quality of their risk management and aligning the use of the SafetyCulture products to insurance needs. 

It pays to be a step ahead. Astronaut Chris Hadfield once said, “No astronaut ever goes into space with their fingers crossed.”

Well, we share the same philosophy for those going into business. Always be prepared for whatever is coming your way. Our customers have worked hard to let one unfortunate mistake bring their business down.

So, we’ll work just as hard (and smart) to help mitigate risks for our customers. But we don’t stop there. If something should happen, we’ll be there to deal with the claim quickly.

Our customers don’t want to trust their pride and joy to someone who doesn’t care.

We live by the motto ‘Foresight is better than hindsight’ and we’re looking ahead and thinking ahead to keep our customers and their businesses – a step ahead.
