As a result of ongoing expansion, this top global broker has a rare opportunity for someone to specialise within its thriving D&O / Management Liabilities division.
Catering for mid-market corporate clients who typically have total premium spends in excess of £250K, you will work closely with the over-arching Corporate Account Director, where you will provide technical input on the Directors’ & Officers’ / Management Liability aspect of corporate insurance programmes.
Excitingly, this role can be based anywhere in the UK and so may appeal to individuals working in either the regional and London markets. You’ll have the opportunity to work predominantly from home, reporting into a local office circa twice a week (negotiable). Moreover, this is a company that very much promotes flexibility; providing ‘results-based’ careers that fit around its employees’ busy lives and commitments, without the need for strict micro-management and rigid working hours.
You will assist with the broking of both new and existing business cases, working with a range of insurers to source and secure suitable insurance coverage. You’ll be supporting offices across the whole UK branch network, with whom you will be expected to forge strong working relationships. We must emphasise that this is a technical role, which DOES NOT have responsibility for new business production. However, we are certainly looking for someone who has the ability to trade and negotiate with insurers, as well as suggest ancillary products and services, where appropriate. Whilst the Corporate Account Director will hold ultimate responsibility for the management of the account, you will also have some client contact in relation to the specialist Management Liability piece.
Our client will consider both D&O / Management Liability brokers, as well as Underwriters who have a ‘trader’s mentality.’ It is not essential that you are currently a pure D&O specialist – we will consider ‘generalist’ insurance professionals who have had some reasonable exposure to this line of business, including covers such as D&O, Crime, EPL and PTL. Crucially, you’ll be experienced in relationship management, together with first-class communication skills.
As this corporate broker arranges the insurance for some of the UK’s most well-known companies, this role will give you exposure to dealing with some truly fascinating accounts. In addition, being at the forefront of corporate insurance, you will be working for a business that has ‘best in class’ products, and undoubtedly some of most technically-gifted insurance specialists in the business. From day one, you’ll have access to this company’s unrivalled training and development programme, which will help you to realise your professional and personal goals. This is certainly a company that has a great reputation for looking after its employees, and the Senior Leadership Team often cite the main selling points of working for this organisation as “flexibility and opportunity”, which are clearly present in abundance.
You will be rewarded with an attractive basic salary (Negotiable, depending on experience), together with one of the best flexible-benefits packages in the market.
