For ambitious insurance professionals who are focussed on their professional development, but also care about their work : life balance, there can be few better broking houses to forge a fantastic career with!
This broker is one of the best-known firms in the Yorkshire market, and continues to swell its ranks with the appointment of high calibre Commercial and Corporate Brokers. One of the reasons it continues to attract the brightest and best brokers locally is that it is well known for its friendly and supportive environment, where there is a real focus on all employees’ physical and mental wellbeing. For example, there is a ‘work run club’, regular free fruit, a lively social scene and an (optional and confidential!) in-house Wellbeing Practitioner who designs bespoke training and development plans, empowering all staff to be the best they can be in all areas of their life.
In addition, this firm is a Chartered broker, so has committed to the highest level of professional standards. All staff are encouraged (and financially supported) to undertake professional qualifications with the CII, and play a part in the local insurance community by attending training events, seminars and socials! Furthermore, it can give multiple examples of employees who have joined in relatively junior positions and have risen through the ranks in to senior (including Board level) positions in different insurance disciplines such as Managerial, Technical or Sales positions.
Due to the continued acquisition of quality accounts, it seeks several new Account Handlers to join its Leeds office. As such, it can accommodate people in either the Corporate or Commercial Departments. Depending on your skills, experience and ambitions, you will work alongside Account Executives and Directors managing a varied portfolio of risks that could range in size and complexity; from SME cases paying a couple of thousand pound commission to corporates paying six figure fees. Clients are from a range of industry sectors, both blue and white collar, and could include blue-chip household names.
This forward-thinking broker welcomes applications from both candidates from a broking or underwriting background, but it is essential that you have relevant exposure to commercial risks. You must also be a hardworking, team player who enjoys working to shared goals and objectives. You should also have excellent communication skills (written and verbal) and be confident negotiating with insurers and dealing with clients from all walks of life.
This firm is not known for ‘low balling’ on salaries, so the remuneration on offer is completely negotiable. For more information, please contact Richard Jones in the strictest of confidence.
