Recent reports in the industry press of being appointed to a number of high profile cases, further bolster this global’s claims that it is the Public Sector & Education broker of choice for the UK’s most prestigious specialist accounts.
Having enjoyed a sustained period of organic growth, coupled with the acquisition of quality accounts, this Broker’s Swindon office has established itself as somewhat a Centre of Excellence within the Public Sector and Education arena, and several significant cases are being transferred into this branch from other areas of the business. As such, it is seeking a Commercial / Corporate Account Handler to join its dedicated team, comprising some of the UK’s most talented insurance professionals from within this fascinating niche.
You will work in close conjunction with 4 Account Directors, providing a high level of support on a designated portfolio of cases, split roughly equally between the Education & Private Sector disciplines. Your clients will include well known organisations, with premium spends ranging from six figures up to and an excess of a million pounds, many of whom have income in the billions of pounds and tens of thousands of employees, alongside countless other stakeholders.
As well as overseeing the day to day running of these organisation’s insurance programmes, you will be encouraged to form a close professional bond with members of their in-house Risk & Insurance Teams, which will include undertaking on site visits. You will also be expected to develop relationships with Underwriters from a range of insurance companies, and keep abreast of developments that could affect your clientele’s industry.
Whilst by no means essential, you will ideally be from a Public Sector or Education insurance background. Alternatively, our client is keen to speak to Corporate Brokers from competing globals. However, they do welcome applications from experienced Account Handlers who have handled larger commercial risks, and can demonstrate some knowledge of these sectors and an aptitude for leaning the nuances of the associated risks.
In return, you can expect to receive a highly competitive basic salary and an extensive benefits package. Alongside the satisfaction of working as a key part of a team that is recognised by many as ‘the best in the business’, you will also benefit from a comprehensive training programme (including support towards professional qualifications if desired) and unlimited opportunities for progression.
