As a result of ongoing expansion, a highly respected provincial insurance broker based in St Helens has a rare opening for a Commercial Account Handler OR Trainee Commercial Account Handler.
Despite the pandemic, this business is experiencing unprecedented business levels and as a result, has a requirement for an insurance professional to assist with the ongoing broking and administration of commercial insurance accounts.
Boasting an extremely low staff turnover and a terrific reputation in the North West business community and beyond, this company provides a great environment in which talented commercial brokers can really flourish. In fact, one member of staff, who joined the company as an Apprentice, has recently been appointed as a company Director.
You’ll be working closely with 2 Account Executives, supporting them with the ongoing administration of clients’ accounts, and helping to maintain strong relationships with clients and insurers. Typically, accounts generate premiums from £15K to £250K across as wide range of industry sectors and as such, you’ll gain access to some fascinating risks.
Duties will include, but certainly not be limited to, handling renewals, processing endorsements, conducting broking / re-broking exercises, and dealing with general day to day client enquiries. You will also be given the opportunity to accompany the Account Executives on some client visits.
Ideally, you will have at least 3 years’ commercial broking experience, together with a knowledge of the main commercial insurance covers; namely, Property, Liability and Motor. HOWEVER, this is a rare situation whereby our client will consider a Trainee, although in this case, you must have some previous insurance experience. You might perhaps be a Personal Lines Broker who is looking to make a move into commercial, or you might be an outgoing Commercial Underwriter who would like to have more client interaction. Progress with insurance qualifications would certainly be advantageous, although this is by no means essential.
As expected in a such a role, you will be well-organised, with great attention to detail and the ability to produce accurate documentation within strict timescales. Just as importantly, you will be a strong communicator, who can build and maintain strong working relationships with clients, insurers and colleagues. This is by no means a sales role, but you will be encouraged to promote ancillary products and services wherever possible.
There is certainly no expectation for you to progress beyond this role, however if you wish to do so, the company can support you with progressing into an Account Executive role, which will include support with professional insurance qualifications via the CII.
You will be rewarded with a basic salary of up to £32K (depending on previous experience), together with a range of company benefits, including an annual bonus.
Don’t miss this opportunity to work for one of the North West’s most respected provincial brokers.
