This has to be top Account Executive opportunity in Reading right now.

We are delighted to be assisting, what is arguably the most prestigious insurance broker in the world, with the appointment of Corporate Account Executive.

This position has arisen as a result of the retirement of a longstanding member of staff, and as such, you will be inherit a loyal portfolio of corporate clients.

This organisation’s Reading office is performing tremendously; achieving consistent annual growth, and having recently enjoyed a record year. The branch specialises in ‘mid to large’ UK and global risks, with clients generating typical fees in the region of £50K-£60K. Catering for a diverse range of industry sectors, including but not limited to, Manufacturing, Retail, Property Owners, Tech’ and the Professions, you’ll enjoy dealing with a fascinating portfolio encompassing some extremely interesting insurance programmes.

The Directors tell us, “this is a highly refreshing company to work for”, and one where, “the quality of our service naturally brings in regular business.” The company offers a vast amount of specialist solutions for its corporate clientele, which is reflected in its impressive client retention rate and regular referrals.

Upon joining the business, you will inherit a book comprising between 12–15 large accounts. Because of this, you will have the opportunity to build very strong relationships with your clients, together with a deep understanding of their business activities and insurance requirements. The make-up of your portfolio can be tweaked to suit your skills, experience and ambitions, and you will be able to draw upon specialist expertise from various divisions within the company, in order to deliver the world-leading, comprehensive service that this broker is renowned for. As company ambassador, you’ll oversee and negotiate renewals, help arrange sophisticated insurance solutions to cater for your clients’ evolving needs, and identify ways in which to develop and nurture existing relationships.

In terms of experience, we are open to Account Executives from either a Corporate or Commercial broking environment, although as a minimum, you must have previous experience of dealing with some sizeable commercial insurance accounts. Crucially, you’ll be passionate about being a true ‘risk adviser’, and genuinely interested in tailoring truly bespoke insurance solutions for your clients. Just as importantly, it’s essential that you are capable of liaising effectively with senior members at board level, and that you have polished communication and presentation skills.

The opportunities within this organisation are endless; the Directors citing, “whilst there is no pressure on our staff, we actively support and encourage career-development, both in and outside of our specific business area.” In fact, we can cite numerous examples of Account Executives who have progressed into leadership roles, or transferred into other specialist divisions, both within the UK and globally. This is reflected in the company’s excellent staff retention rates, and the fact that it is well-known for being one of the most caring insurance organisations, which takes its employees’ wellbeing very seriously.

You’ll be rewarded with an attractive basic salary, car allowance and lucrative annual bonus, together with an impressive range of flexible-benefits that can be tweaked to suit your personal circumstances. You’ll also benefit from a hybrid-working arrangement, allowing you the flexibility to work between the office, home, and client visits, as required.
