Are you an experienced insurance professional looking for a challenging sales role? Are you looking to work for a leading name in the insurance market? Do you want a highly rewarding and clearly defined career development plan?
If so, a fantastic opportunity has arisen with an international insurer that is seeking an accomplished Business Development Manager to join its team.
This market-leading player strives to offer a ‘best in class’ approach and is focused on fully exploiting business opportunities with its broker partners.
Your role will be to develop strong relationships with your panel, which include both large regional and national brokers. This is one of the largest accounts within the business (a circa £45m portfolio), and therefore you will need to ensure that this is maintained and grown. Using your structured sales approach, you will visit your broker panel regularly to establish new business leads for the Underwriting Team, as well as using your influence to secure the risks. You’ll work towards stretching sales targets, and you’ll receive mentoring and training to help you become the best you can be.
The most important things we are looking for are the desire to succeed, an engaging personality, and a proactive approach. With the account being so valuable, you will need to ensure that you can ‘hold your own’ with your panel and say ‘no’ when required. My client will consider candidates from either an Insurer/ MGA or broking background, who have a proven track record within commercial insurance sales delivery. It’s essential that you have a structured sales process to delivering new business, with a record of success that can be translated into any environment.
What’s in it for you? You will receive a highly competitive salary and benefits package, including an annual bonus. More importantly, this business is renowned for rewarding success, and with numerous examples of internal promotions, there are a wide range of attractive career opportunities available.
You will have the benefit of a corporate, yet modern approach to your individual development, and your management team will be fully committed to your career enhancement from day one.
