It is near impossible to find a broker that can offer better career and professional development than this prestigious global broking house in Leeds.

A rare opportunity has arisen for an Account Handler to join the major corporate team of this world-renowned insurance brokerage.

Here, you will play an integral role in servicing the insurance programmes of a range of clients that typically generate individual fee incomes of between £50K - £250K. Your portfolio will consist of circa 8 clients, which will allow you to really ‘get under the skin’ of these businesses and build some terrific relationships. Clients within your portfolio can be tweaked in accordance with your skills, experience and interests, and you will be given a great deal of support to transition successfully into the role.

“We excel at training and development”, says the Branch Director, who himself has had a number of impressive promotions within the business over the last few years. “We want to bring on people who are genuinely excited about dealing with some of the most high-profile insurance accounts in the Yorkshire region, and we will dedicate a huge amount of resource to ensure that they make a great success of their role”.

Our client appreciates that because they deal with some of the largest accounts in the market, it is likely that new starters will not have previously dealt with insurance risks of this size. However, because of their unrivalled development programme, they have had huge success with training candidates from a commercial insurance background, who have demonstrated a real thirst for learning.

You’ll be heavily involved in renewals, as well as servicing the ongoing requirements of your clientele. This is a business where Account Handlers regularly interact with their customers, and so you’ll have the opportunity to accompany Account Directors on client visits, which makes the job so much more interesting and rewarding.

It's essential that you have previous experience within commercial / corporate insurance broking, and that you have dealt with some reasonable-sized commercial risks, as opposed to micro-SME cases. As a minimum, you must be au fait with Property and Liability / Commercial Combined risks. Just as importantly, you’ll be well-organised and inquisitive, with strong communication skills.

As evidenced by many current members of staff who have experienced the terrific progression opportunities in this business, the ‘sky really is the limit’ in terms of your career-development. Being such a large organisation, there are opportunities to move into many different areas, both locally and across the globe. For example, staff have progressed from this role into all sorts of areas such as Placement, Risk Management, Project Management and Leadership – the list is endless!

You’ll be rewarded with a competitive starting salary, together with a highly impressive flexible benefits package. This company is also well-renowned for looking after the wellbeing of its staff, which is reflected it its very low staff turnover and impressive employee satisfaction survey scores.

The company operates a hybrid-working arrangement, which will allow you to work a couple of days from home, should you so wish.

If you are an Account Handler who is looking for more than just an admin role, and the genuine opportunity to become a trusted adviser to high profile insurance clients, then look no further than this role and apply without delay.
