Perhaps the fastest growing broker of its size in the UK, and certainly one of the highest profile, rarely does a week pass by where this dynamic firm is not featured in the insurance press for picking up a new award or some exciting new development.
It is led by a young, ambitious management team with a clear vision for the future, and who, in a few short years, are really making waves; taking clients from larger, more stale broking houses, and creating alliances with some of the biggest names from their chosen sectors. With such achievements to its name, it is clear why this firm is held in such high regard by its industry peers and client base alike.
Keen to build on its successes, the management team continues to reinvest profits and develop the business. For example, it was traditionally viewed as more of a wheels-orientated broker, and in the past year or so, it has focused on developing its presence in other sectors, writing a high volume of miscellaneous commercial business from a variety of industry sectors.
The management team has worked hard to ensure that this broker is viewed as a ‘go to’ employer for candidates seeking a rewarding, challenging and fun to place to work. They are proud to have a culture of promoting from within, and can provide examples of people who have joined in a relatively junior capacity who have really developed within the business.
As a result of the continued acquisition of quality accounts, the need has arisen to appoint an additional Account Handler to join the team. Now boasting a diverse portfolio of client across a broad spectrum of industry sectors, the client allocation (sector and complexity), as well as the finer points of the role, can be somewhat tweaked to suit your skills, experience and ambitions.
You will be responsible for providing a high level of client service to your portfolio; rather than simply checking in pre-renewal, you will maintain close contact with your clients throughout the year to build a high level of rapport and develop a great understanding of their businesses and the risks they face. This will allow you to work in conjunction with Account Executives and Directors and help design a suitable insurance programme. You will also administer any mid-term amendments and negotiate with insurers to secure your clients the most comprehensive cover at competitive premiums.
As there’s scope to be flexible about some of the duties, we welcome applications from candidates at all stages of their insurance career, from relatively junior Handlers through to more experienced candidates. It is, however, essential that you share this firm’s passion for delivering exceptional client service, possess a ‘can do’ attitude, and share the company’s ambition to become the most successful broker in its field.
In return, you will receive a completely negotiable package, as well as benefiting from working in close conjunction with some the industry’s most talented insurance professionals. Working for a fast-growing business also means that in the near future, you can benefit from a variety of opportunities for progression; for example, it is entirely feasible that you could move from this role into more technical, managerial or client-facing positions.
