This is a superb opportunity to join a firm that has crafted an unrivalled reputation for enhancing the careers of its employees, and is rightly known by many in the industry as ‘employer of choice’. It holds the prestigious Investors In People Gold Award and has been recognised in the industry press as one of the best insurance firms to work for. As one would expect from a Chartered Broker, it takes great pride in the technical ability of its staff, and accordingly provides bespoke training and development plans.
Due to the continued acquisition of quality accounts, it seeks an additional Commercial Account Handler to join the team in its Burgess Hill office. Here, you will be responsible for dealing with accounts that typically pay premiums from £20K to over £100K per annum. Clients are from a wide range of industry sectors, including Property Owners, Life Sciences & Tech, Motor Trade and Manufacturing.
This is a wide-ranging role encompassing account management, insurer relations, business development and cross selling. As such, it is essential that you have a well-developed skill set that includes excellent written and verbal communication skills, the ability to manage a variety of stakeholders, networking, and the ability to identify commercial opportunities, backed up with the business acumen to be able to close these deals. As you would expect, it is also necessary that you have a solid knowledge of the commercial broking market, coupled with an understanding of all common commercial covers such as Property, Liability, Financial Lines & Fleet etc. Ideally, you will be Cert CII qualified and eager to continue towards further professional qualifications. Whilst not essential, we are particularly keen to hear from candidates with experience of the Acturis broking platform.
As you would expect from a broker that has such a tremendous reputation for looking after all of its staff, you will receive a very competitive package. This includes a generous and completely negotiable basic salary, bonus and car / allowance. Other company benefits include PMI, DIS, laptop, mobile, 5% pension contribution and support towards professional exams and memberships.
