As a result of continual growth, this top global insurance broker is seeking an experienced Corporate Account Executive / Director in the South.
This high-performing business caters for the insurance requirements of some of the UK’s most prestigious corporate entities. Clients span a wide range of industry sectors, and individual accounts typically generate fees ranging from £30K - £100K+.
Upon joining the business, you will inherit a significant portfolio of clients (circa £650K income), which can be tweaked to cater for your personal strengths, experience, and ambitions. Should you wish to push yourself in terms of your technical expertise, this is certainly a broker that his its ‘finger on the pulse’ when it comes to working with innovative clients. As an example, you can benefit from exposure to the likes of some exciting and entrepreneurial Tech’ and App development companies, as well as clients from rapidly-evolving markets such as the ‘sharing economy.’
Refreshingly, whilst you’ll be dealing with large corporate concerns, this branch typically deals directly with Company Secretaries, FDs and Board members, as opposed to liaising with In-house Insurance & Risk Management teams. As such, you’ll enjoy a heightened level of client contact in comparison with some of this global’s main competitors.
Whilst there is no pressure for you to progress beyond this position, the MD is very open about the fact that there are genuine opportunities here to progress into a leadership role. As a part of their ongoing growth plans, they have opportunities in the next 3 years for Head of Office positions and are big believers of ‘promoting from within.’ You’ll benefit from working for a company that has an unrivalled training and development programme, which will ensure that you achieve your personal career goals and ambitions. The business leader cites, “once you’re in the club, you’re in, and opportunities are endless here; both locally and all across the globe.”
This organisation is flexible in terms of experience, and whilst some previous corporate insurance experience would be beneficial, they will also consider talented candidates from commercial background too. Most importantly, they are “recruiting for behaviours”; inspiring insurance professionals who are committed to providing the highest level of service, and who want to be at the top of their game. Importantly, you’ll have a sound working knowledge of the main commercial covers, as well as first-class client relationship management skills because the key here is very much on the servicing and retention of invaluable corporate clients.
Our client is fully aware of the financial pressures associated with the cost of living, and wants to offer packages that ‘truly attract the best.’ You’ll be rewarded with a generous basic salary of up to £85K (negotiable, dependent on experience), together with an impressive suite of company benefits, which includes substantial pension contributions. In addition, this business genuinely offers one of the most attractive bonus schemes in the market (based on retention, realistic account growth and behaviours etc), which can result in significant bonuses in the tens of thousands of pounds.
As a huge advocate of agile-working, you’ll have great autonomy to manage your own diary, and work from home / the office as you see fit, with the need to only be present in the office one day a week. With multiple offices on the M3 and M4 corridor, this will surely appeal to candidates from all over the South East.
This really is one of the most appealing Corporate Account Executive / Director roles in the Southern market now (in terms of personal income, clientele and career development opportunities), so call us in the strictest of confidence to discuss in more detail.
