We are delighted to be exclusively representing one of the most prestigious insurance brokers in the country, which is searching for a talented Commercial Broking Manager.
This well-known, national concern controls a large market share of a lucrative sector within the general insurance market and boasts a very enviable client base.
Whilst this is a well-established and extremely successful organisation, it is benefiting from further investment, and going through an exciting period of growth, which makes this a particularly opportune time to join the business.
Leading a team of 12 broking staff, this is a very interesting and rewarding role that comprises both technical and managerial responsibilities. Duties will include, but not be limited to, hiring, developing and mentoring colleagues, being accountable for delivery and forecasting future revenue, maintaining high level professional relationships with external stakeholders, and building visibility in the sectors the team specialises in. You’ll also manage insurer relationships, negotiating to ensure they remain market-leading and provide preferential terms, and you’ll provide sign-off on internal referrals across a range of classes of business.
You’ll have a high level of technical commercial insurance knowledge across a range of product lines, with the ability to operate effectively at all levels of the organisation, as well as with customers and other external stakeholders. Given the high-profile client relationships and partnerships that this organisation holds, you’ll be a credible company ambassador with strong relationship management skills. This will include having the confidence to make presentations to outside commercial organisations in the form of workshops, as well as sessions at national conferences or sector round table discussions.
As an experienced leader, you’ll be approachable, fair and inspiring, and you’ll have a genuine passion for getting the best out of others. You also have the ability to develop and execute strategic plans, focusing on renewal retention and growth opportunities.
This is undoubtedly a rare opportunity to be part of a hugely successful and transforming business, where you’ll be very visible to the board. Staff within this firm cite how collaborative and supportive the working environment is, benefitting from regular contact with the Senior Leadership Team, who highly encourage everyone’s personal and professional development within the organisation.
The company operates a hybrid working arrangement, with the opportunity to work from home circa 2 or 3 days a week.
You will benefit from a competitive basic salary of up to circa £50K (negotiable depending on experience). An impressive array of benefits is also on offer including a market-leading defined contribution pension scheme, Private Health Insurance, Life Assurance, and a number of additional benefits through a flexible scheme. There are also a wide range of other attractive perks including free onsite parking, access to impressive gym and sporting facilities, free fruit, annual incentives, regular social outings, and much more!
