Do you have commercial SME insurance broking experience? Would you like to take over a long-standing portfolio of clients and help grow this over time?
A well-established independent insurance Broker in Essex is looking for an experienced Account Executive to inherit and manage an existing £700k GWP book of SME commercial business. Typical risks include Commercial Combined, Packages, Tradesmen, PI and Motor Trade with premiums from £2k to £10k. The successful candidate will be expected to visit clients, present to Underwriters and place risks in the market.
It is expected that 3 or 4 days per week will be spent on existing clients and the remaining time dedicated to proactively growing the book with new clients. This could be through sending emails/letters aimed at companies in specific trades and following up with calls, revisiting past prospects and aiming to re-quote, cross-selling at renewal, visiting local businesses and generally using your initiative to think of new ideas to generate clients.
Applicants for this role should have solid client facing experience for a Broker combined with cross-class commercial knowledge. Confident broking skills to Underwriters are essential along with confident sales and development skills. Progression opportunities are available to loyal members of the team who demonstrate the right work ethic and ability.
