Due to the continued acquisition of quality accounts, this leading global broking house seeks to add technical fire power to its Corporate Unit through the appointment of a Senior Account Handler / Broker.
Here, you will play a key role in the successful management of a portfolio of corporate clients. These accounts generate fees of at least £15K, and potentially up to six figure income. Clients are from a wide variety of industry sectors, such as Manufacturing, Retail, Food & Beverage and Technology.
Roles exist in both the Corporate and Global Teams. In the Corporate Team, you will be dealing with complex accounts from both blue and white-collar sectors. These clients are typically UK domiciled, but many will have international exposures. In the Global Team, you will deal with a high volume of clients; typically, the UK based subsidiaries of much larger multinational businesses whose primary insurance programme are run by colleagues in overseas offices.
In either instance, you will support Corporate Account Executives and Directors by managing their portfolios throughout their policy lifecycles. This will include liaising with clients, scrutinising their businesses to identify exposure to risks, and negotiating with insurers to ensure these are comprehensively mitigated and priced with competitive premiums. You will produce accurate, informative and compliant documents, supporting your findings in relation to renewals, mid-term amendments and any marketing exercises conducted on behalf of colleagues on the new business team.
it is essential that you have previous insurance of dealing with complex corporate business and a sound understating of all common commercial covers such as Property, Liability, Business Interruption and Financial Lines. You must have excellent communication skills (written and verbal), a keen eye for detail and be very professional in your approach.
It is anticipated that you are ACII qualified or have made significant progress towards professional qualifications under the CII. However, we welcome application from outstanding candidates who have chosen not pursue these.
In return, you will receive a basic salary that is negotiable but likely to be £30K - £45K, plus a very comprehensive benefits package that includes an impressive bonus scheme. For the ambitious, there are certainly some exciting opportunities for progression in the year ahead as this thriving global continues to develop.
