This broker is growing at a tremendous rate; after just a small number of years it is already larger than many competing, more established brokers locally.
It is seeking an experienced Account Handler to join its close-knit and friendly team. Here, you will be responsible for helping with the day to day management of a portfolio of clients. These will be predominantly commercial risks, as well as some agricultural, equine and high net worth accounts. Clients can vary in size from small tradespeople risks paying £1K premium, up to much larger complex accounts, such as Hauliers, with premium spends approaching six figures.
You will be speaking to clients over the telephone (and occasionally in person), dealing with mid-term amendments, reviewing insurance documents and answering any general day to day enquiries.
It is essential that you have a basic knowledge of either commercial or agricultural insurance, ideally gained from a broking environment. You must have excellent communication skills (both written and verbal), be polite, professional and comfortable dealing with clients from a wide variety of industry sectors. You must be well-organised, meticulous and pride yourself on your attention to detail. As this is a smaller, family firm, it is essential that you are a team player who recognises the importance of consistently delivering excellent client service.
As well as a completely negotiable basic salary, our client offers free onsite parking, lots of opportunities for development and progression, and support towards professional qualifications under the CII.
