Opportunities to inherit an established portfolio of accounts are few and far between. To do so with one of the most respected brokers in the local market, even more so.
Having consistently achieved double digit growth in recent years, whilst maintaining client retention in excess of 95%, this long-established firm looks set to remain one of Yorkshire’s preeminent brokerages.
Due to this continued growth, the need has arisen for several Directors to hand over a portion of their personal portfolios, to enable them to focus on exciting new developments within the company. This vacancy is the brainchild of the MD; one of the most credible, entrepreneurial and impressive broker principals in the local market. As such, they have a vested interest in your success and you will get the opportunity to ‘learn from one of the best’ in this high profile role.
As this is a new role within the company, the job specification and the make-up the portfolio is by no means ‘set in stone’ and can be adjusted to suit your skills, experience and ambitions. In addition to managing existing accounts, you will seek to develop the portfolio further, by targeting those clients generating premiums in excess of £10K. To aid you in growing this portfolio, you will benefit from an in-house telesales operation, warm leads provided by affinity partners/ professional contacts, and by working with members of the Business Development Team.
We welcome applications from seasoned Senior Account Executives, and less experienced junior personnel with only a couple of year’s client facing experience. In either instance, it is imperative that you have sound technical skills encompassing all common commercial covers. It is also essential that you have impressive communication skills, are of smart appearance, and able to build professional rapport with clients from a range of industry sectors.
In return, our client is quite happy to draw up a bespoke remuneration package with the ratio of basic salary to bonus to suit your personal requirements. There are a range of other benefits on offer, including an impressive company pension scheme and support towards professional qualifications.
