Due to its unique ownership model, flat management structure and entrepreneurial approach, this prestigious global broker is much more nimble than competing brokers, allowing it to adapt quickly to changes in a fast-paced market. This is clearly paying dividends as the company once more delivers another year of double-digit growth locally, nationally and globally.
Indeed, it is a result of the continued acquisition of prestigious accounts that its Corporate Practice seeks an additional Account Manager / Global Account Handler to join the team in a senior capacity. Here, you will work in close conjunction with some of the brightest names in the industry to play a crucial role in the management of a portfolio of corporate clients, including prestigious, globally-renowned names. These include FTSE 100 PLC’s and some of the UK’s largest privately held companies from a range of industry sectors, such as Automotive, Life Science, IT, Financial Institutions and Retail. As you would expect, many of these have extensive overseas operations that require complex global programmes. There will also be a small number of reverse flow accounts pertaining to the UK subsidiaries of extremely large companies that are domiciled in other territories.
Alongside supporting Account Executives and Directors in delivering a first-class level of client service, your duties will include preparing accurate client and marketing documentation, and producing a variety of reports. You will manage all renewals and mid-terms, ensuring that the programme continually mitigates clients’ exposures, and you will also negotiate with Underwriters to ensure this is achieved at the most competitive premium. Should any gaps in cover be identified, you will work with colleagues to suggest to clients the most appropriate adjustments to the insurance programme, or highlight suitable risk management solutions. Given the complex nature of your portfolio, you will be liaising with a variety of stakeholders from across the globe, including colleagues from specialist teams such as Aerospace, Energy or Political Risk.
It is essential that you have extensive corporate insurance knowledge, and whilst you need not be currently dealing with clients paying £100K fees, it is necessary to have some exposure to five-figure income cases. As you would expect, you must be au fait with the full range of commercial covers and have experience of dealing with clients from a wide variety of industry sectors. You should have the ability to interpret complex data (claims experience / triangulations, the impact of deductibles on cover variations etc), and the communication skills (written and verbal), to relay these to all stakeholders. You must also be well-organised, have a keen eye for detail, and the first-class organisational skills to manage a variety of tasks and projects simultaneously.
In return, you will receive a generous basic salary (negotiable but we anticipate to be to circa £45K) plus a comprehensive range of benefits, including support towards professional qualifications under the CII.
