“Wherever you find yourself landing here, it really is just a springboard to the next opportunity”, says the Branch Director of this global broker, before citing examples of colleagues who have joined in a similar capacity and gone on to achieve great things within the company. Indeed, on day one, you will be managing some fascinating clients, and encouraged to shadow Account Directors on site visits…after that, the sky really is the limit!
This firm is performing terrifically, and having enjoyed a period of sustained growth, needs an additional Corporate Account Handler. Here, you will be working with 3 or 4 Account Directors / Executives, assisting them on a portfolio of 8–12 accounts. Clients will vary in fee income from £30K to £200K, coming from a range of industry sectors such a Pharma, Tech and Construction. You’ll have exposure to some of the most well-known corporate entities in the South West and Wales, working alongside incredibly gifted insurance professionals who have a great deal of knowledge and experience to impart on enthusiastic insurance brokers who have a thirst for knowledge.
Duties will include, but not be limited to, working on complex renewals, assisting with amendments to cover throughout the course of the policy, whilst building strong relationships with your clients and really getting to know the nuances of their business activities. Importantly, as your clients’ organisations continue to evolve, you will work in conjunction with your colleagues to ensure that their exposures to risk remain adequately covered. Refreshingly, this is an Account Handling role that genuinely provides great exposure to client-facing duties; this is therefore ideal for someone who would ultimately like to become an Account Executive / Director and beyond, although there is no pressure to do this – great long-term Corporate Account Handlers are very welcome!
Whilst knowledge of all common commercial covers and some exposure to dealing with reasonable-sized business is important, “finding someone with energy, ambition and a hunger to progress”, is crucial to the Branch Director. With such enormous resource within the organisation, our client is looking for someone who is going to fully embrace this and realise their full potential. Upon joining the firm, you’ll see that your managers will be fully committed to your professional development from day one, and you will immediately have access to a world-leading training and development programme. A vast array of career opportunities exist within this firm, both in the (UK and globally), and the company is very keen to promote from within wherever possible.
Whilst you are of course welcome in the office as much as you like, you’ll benefit from a hybrid working arrangement, where you’ll only need to be in the office circa 2 days a week.
You will be rewarded with a comprehensive starting salary, together with one of the most attractive benefits packages in the market, including annual bonus and substantial pension contributions.
