Famed in the Scottish market for its sophisticated approach to insurance, this broker’s innovation is perhaps best evidenced by its unique ‘4 step broking methodology.’
This approach, when coupled with the technical expertise of its staff and its gravitas with insurers, has resulted in formidable growth in recent years. It continues to add to its longstanding portfolio of corporate clients with the acquisition of quality accounts. It shuns overly price-orientated prospects, and instead seeks to build longstanding partnerships with clients who recognise the value of a robust and comprehensive insurance programme.
As Corporate New Business Broker you will play a key part in this broking house’s success for years to come. You will work in close conjunction with Directors and Business Development Executives, including some of the region’s most impressive insurance professionals. You will help shape the future of new business campaigns, including working with insurers to identify prospect companies and explore new niches and sectors to attack. You will keep abreast of the market, continually evolving your knowledge of specific Underwriters’ appetite for particular risks. When passed a new business case by colleagues in the sales team, you will prepare professional and highly detailed market reports and help design a comprehensive insurance programme.
It is essential that you are naturally curious, business minded and have a sound understanding of the risks faced by firms from all sectors. Equally, you must have excellent written and verbal communication skills, a “trader’s mentality” and be comfortable negotiating with insurers. It is also imperative that you have a sound working knowledge of all common commercial covers. Whilst no means essential, we are particularly interested in hearing from candidates who have made progression with professional qualifications under the CII.
In return, you will receive a basic salary that is expected to be to around £32K, but completely negotiable for outstanding candidates. You will also receive a comprehensive benefits package including bonus and support towards professional qualifications.
