This Chartered Broker puts its clients’ interests at the centre of everything it does and, over 50 years, has crafted a superb reputation for the technical ability of its staff. This is exactly how, despite remaining an independent broker in an increasingly consolidated market, this family-run firm has accrued an enviable client list including global FMCG brands and some of the largest property portfolios across the UK.

As one would expect from a firm that is so centred on client service, this role is very much focused on the management of existing accounts, and so you will not be burdened with distracting sales targets. Instead, you will inherit a portfolio of larger Commercial Property and Real Estate clients, and be tasked with the successful management and retention of these. Here, you will be encouraged to develop a sound understanding of your clients’ businesses, in order to ensure their insurance programmes are adequate for their appetite for risk, and if gaps in cover exist, you’ll suggest innovative ways to mitigate these. You’ll also be responsible for preparing renewals and marketing risks, as well as being tasked with writing a variety of reports and associated documentation in a timely and complaint fashion.

Whilst you needn’t be working exclusively within the Commercial Property insurance niche at present, it is essential that you do have extensive exposure to Real Estate clients and knowledge of relevant covers. Whilst it is not essential that you have dealt with corporate clients paying fees in excess of £50,000, you must be confident in your ability to build rapport with sophisticated insurance buyers and understand the nuances of their insurance arrangements. You must also be highly numerate, au fait with all common IT packages and have excellent communication skills (both written verbal).

This broker is well-known for being one of the best payers in the market, and the CEO is certainly no penny pincher – this is a key role looking after many of the company’s trophy accounts, so we anticipate a six-figure salary being awarded. For candidates who can demonstrate adding even more value (such as adopting management duties, or being able to influence accounts post covenant), then the CEO is ‘all ears’ in regards to offering a bespoke bonus scheme to keep you motivated in the short, medium and long-term.

You will also receive a comprehensive benefits package and, as you would expect from a Chartered Broker, fully funded support towards CII qualifications and professional memberships. For the ambitious, this broker is known for ‘promoting from within’ so you will benefit from a myriad of opportunities for professional development and career advancement.
