As a result of continual growth, this top global insurance broker has a rare opportunity for a Corporate Account Executive Team Manager 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+.
You’ll take responsibility for overseeing a team of 5 Corporate Account Executives, which will include but by no means be limited to, overseeing workflow, assisting with referrals, and ensuring that personal development plans are achieved. In addition, you’ll be servicing a very manageable portfolio of corporate clients (likely to be 5 / 6 clients generating circa £300K in overall fee income). This portfolio 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 huge corporate concerns, this branch typically deals directly with Company Secretaries, Board Members and FDs, 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 broker’s main competitors.
Whilst there is no pressure to progress beyond this position, the MD is very open about the fact that there are genuine opportunities here to progress into a more senior, ‘Head Of’ role. As a part of their ongoing growth plans, they have opportunities in the next few 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 insurance background too. Most importantly, they are “recruiting for behaviours”; inspiring insurance professionals who are passionate about getting the best out of others, and who want to be at the top of their game. Ideally, you will have previous experience in a Team Leader / Manager capacity, although our client will consider talented Execs (who may have had some unofficial mentoring responsibilities), who are ready to take the next step up into an official managerial role.
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, there is a very attractive annual bonus, up to potentially 30% of basic salary, depending on performance metrics.
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.
This really one of the most appealing Corporate Account Exec / Director roles in the market now), so call us in the strictest of confidence to discuss in more detail.
