A superb opportunity has arisen for an experienced insurance professional to forge an exciting new career as a High Net Worth Account Handler in Worcester.
Our client is one of the biggest names in the world of insurance, a global broker that is going through an exciting period of change. This includes the development of a High Net Worth ‘Centre of Excellence’ in Worcester. Here, a dedicated team look after a varied portfolio of insurance clients, with accounts ranging in size and complexity from a few hundred pounds to tens of thousands in premium. At the top end of this, clientele will own multiple properties (UK and abroad), fine art / collections and fleets of prestige motors.
As an Account Handler, you will be responsible for managing relationships with your clients, building an understanding of their lives and the various risks that they are exposed to, and ensuring that their insurance programmes cover these. Where gaps in cover exist, you will highlight these to your clients and suggest appropriate solutions to mitigate these. You will negotiate with a range of insurers in order to secure your clients the most appropriate cover at competitive premiums. As you would expect from working in the highly regulated insurance industry, you must ensure that all work is carried out in fashion that complies with FCA rules and regulations.
As your clients will range from self-made business people, through to those with inherited wealth, you must have excellent communication skills and be able to build a professional rapport with people from all walks of life. It is also essential that you have some insurance experience, either personal lines or commercial, although we welcome applications from people of all insurance disciplines (such as broking, claims or underwriting). As you will be dealing with a large volume of clients, you must be well-organised and have excellent task management skills. You should also be numerate and have a keen eye for detail.
Our client is based just minutes from junction 6 on the M5 and has free on-site parking, meaning this is a viable commute to candidates from a wide area. As well as a generous, negotiable salary (anticipated to be between £20K-25K) our client offers a range of benefits including support towards professional qualifications under the CII. For the ambitious, you will also benefit from a range of opportunities for progression; for example, you could move into managerial or sales positions, or into the commercial department.
