Are you a Telesales professional with a desire to move into Field Sales? Do you want to join a rapidly growing business currently employing over 1,000 people, that will specifically train you for external sales? Are you looking to be generously rewarded for the results you achieve?

Aston Charles are looking for a Sales Executive to join a commercial insurance broker that is generating more positive industry news than most at present.

The UK Board has decided to invest further in Leeds due to a number of factors such as the branch’s continued success, and the local business community particularly suiting this broker’s risk appetite.

In this first-rate opportunity, you will be responsible for generating appointments for a Senior Development Executive in relation to a range of commercial insurances, dealing with both SME and Corporate clients. Utilising various mediums to target prospect clients, you will contact business owners, or Board level staff, and build rapport to gain the specifics of their companies’ present insurance arrangements. You will also overcome gatekeepers’ objections, where appropriate, in order to identify key decision makers. There will be some data cleansing in the initial stages.

When you have ‘found your feet’ in the above role, you will be shadowing the Senior Development Executives, where you will learn how to conduct face-to-face meetings. The plan is that within 12-13 months, you will be on the road yourself. My client will mentor and train you within the commercial insurance sector, which will provide you with a specialist career for life.

It is essential that you have previous experience in telesales, ideally B2B lead generation, although my client will consider talented candidates from other industry sectors. It is imperative that you have outstanding communication skills, with the ability to match your approach to a wide spectrum of personalities. You will be strategic in your approach, tenacious, determined, and importantly, comfortable working in a targeted sales environment.

In return, you will be rewarded with a lucrative salary and healthy, uncapped bonus scheme. This is a great opportunity to work for a company that is innovative and progressive, but free from some of the commercial pressures that can be found in many organisations.
