    Oil Rig workers have traditionally been highly rated by Insurers, the not commuting (Although they obviously can commute at the end / start of a period off shore) is taken into account but they are still perceived as being high risk by many Insurers

    I suppose oil rig workers are likely to celebrate a lot while they're not on the rig.

    But a chef could be a high risk because the hours they work and locations of restaurants may mean they are a high risk of theft or vandalism.

    Great tip! It is amazing what a difference it can make.
    I always struggle with my job title, and still do sadly as i cant find anything that i think matches well enough on your list either.
    My title is "Videographer and Social Media Manager". I work full time for a website, i film videos, edit and publish them on the site. I am also in charge of the Social Media for the company, running FB, Twitter etc.
    Online companies are so difficult to describe for insurance and credit card applications etc. I often have to take the best guess even though i know its not quite right.
    Does anyone have any tips on what i should be using to both get the best deal and not be lying? thanks in advance!

    I work in insurance industry and there's no job match listed!
    I work in risk management/compliance, yet there are no job titles close to either of these listed and I work in the insurance industry! I find it absolutely extraordinary that even standard roles in the insurance industry are not listed by insurance companies...

    My husband left work several years ago and, although we've been saying he's retired, he's not of state pension age, but does draw a pension from a previous employer. Should we really be declaring him as a househusband or retired? He does the housework/preps meals while I'm at work (and yes - I consider myself very lucky).

    We're also considering a change in my work status. I'm currently employed full time but we're in a position to move across the country, me give up work and live off savings/investments. I won't be entitled to any pension for quite some years, won't be claiming benefits of any kind and my husband won't be working either so how would we classify ourselves to insurers in this case?

    I'm not ruling out working in some self-employed capacity in the future but I'm not sure what to state (or worse - to select from drop down menus) to insurance companies.

    Hi Dhiammara, you're right this is a tricky area of insurance. Sounds like your husband is retired as you don't mention he has any intention of returning to work (and is drawing a pension). Also think (based on your explanation) that you'll also be retired ( at least for a while) if you go through the move you mention. Always best to discuss this with your broker/insurer if you're not happy with things. The only occupation which may attract significantly higher premiums in your scenario is unemployed (especially if you are drawing benefits). Hope this helps

    Hi does anyone know what is the best job description to pick for bar staff?
    The only option that I can find on the list is Bar Manager (which she isn't!)
    Thanks in advance

    Sorry if this has been answered earlier. ...but what about being registered with a Temp Agency, for office work? You could be sent to a different "industry" every week. E.g. bank, insurance, builders merchant, garage etc.

    Office Worker or Admin Asst or Clerical Asst with the employer being an employment agency would be acceptable with most Insurers.

    Make sure you have Class One business use as Social, Domestic and Pleasure including Commuting to a permanent place of business is not normally acceptable

    Volunteer jobs and insurance
    I work as a dinner lady for ONE hour a week... But I volunteer as a trustee for an academy which works out on average more hours.

    As a trustee I am registered at Companies house as a Director.

    By JOB do they mean a place where I am paid to work only?

    As clear as mud!

    One other thing.... Do I add commuting?
