Well-established and reputable independent insurance brokerage seeks an enthusiastic insurance broker to join its thriving office based in Blackburn.
This family-owned business has an impressive client base and receives a great deal of enquiries on a daily basis.
You will be working within the Commercial Department, servicing existing customers and providing quotations to prospective clients. You will be dealing with a variety of risks spanning a range of industries, and cases will typically be in the SME arena (Packages, Offices, Tradesmen, Property Owners, Fleet etc), predominantly generating premiums under £5K.
The majority of your work will be conducted over the phone, although you will have some opportunities to visit clients, face to face. You will enjoy working for a brokerage that enjoys strong buying power and competitive rates, as well as having sophisticated technology to source comprehensive cover for your clients, quickly and efficiently.
It is essential that you have previous insurance experience. Ideally, this will be from a commercial broking background, although our client will consider talented candidates from a personal lines background (broking or underwriting). You must have excellent customer service skills, be well-organised, and a great team-player.
This is NOT a ‘hard-core’ sales role and you will not be cold-calling customers – there are many new incoming enquiries to service, as well as plenty of existing clients to look after.
You will be working within a “very friendly, close-knit and enthusiastic” office, which is free from a lot of the red tape and bureaucracy that can often be found in a lot of larger, corporate organisations.
This company offers good prospects for career-advancement, including the chance to deal with larger and more technical cases, or to move into management. Whilst there are no guarantees, staff are also consistently receiving ‘healthy’ pay rises each year!
You’ll be rewarded with a basic salary of up to £30K and the working hours are 9am – 5pm (Monday to Friday) and 10am til 12pm (every other Saturday).
