Business Manager - Commercial & Marine Insurance
As a Commercial/Corporate Account Executive in the North, you crave more autonomy, a voice in the business and opportunity to make things happen. You haven't got time to wait for your Manager to get sign off from their boss, and then further sign off from the CEO just to make a simple decision.
If you can relate to the above, we have an exceptional opportunity to inherit a £150k income account to join the perfect sized Corporate Insurance Broker, a top 15 Independent Brokerage in the UK with a particular International flair. A re-brand going into 2023, this is genuinely a very good time to be part of the business.
Reporting out of their offices in central Manchester, you'll have a gradual handover, no departing Account Executive, meaning your clients will not be under-attack year 2.
Good sized, corporate clients, the sort of sizes the national Brokers handle but you'll be part of a smaller, more collaborative business
You'll spend 80% of your time with existing clients, adding value, providing a consultative service and 20% of your time driving organic growth, building your pipeline and using the resources around you to grow your account to £400k+ in 5 years time.
Salary package up to £70,000 inclusive of car allowance. Lucrative bonus on offer to incentive performance.
Seems to be too good to be true, but there's no hidden catches!
As an Account Executive, there's pro's and con's working for both National and small independent Brokers.
National's have the presence in the market, the name above the door, markets to place all sorts of business. Some of the larger firms are great at employee engagement, but we often hear from some people that they feel as if they are a 'number on a spreadsheet' or a 'small cog in a large machine'.
You may consider working for a family owned, small Insurance Broker but you may be worried about the lack of markets and tools at your disposal. Your broking support may be non-existent and you'll have to help out with MTAs, renewals and general administration.
As someone who mostly enjoys being out there spending time with your clients, does this part of the job really interest you? Probably not.
If you're open for a change but can't decide which route to go down, we have the perfect solution.
Why not join this large, reputable Independent Corporate Insurance Broker with enough firepower to compete with the nationals, but small enough to make you feel like you are working for a family owned business where you feel valued and are able to make an impact.
Inheriting an established portfolio of mid-market, corporate sized business currently sitting at around £150,000 in income.

This firm are 100% not a 'hire and fire' business, as long as you show good will & dedication in your first year it doesn't really matter if you do not wash your face year 1. Targets generally kick in year 2 when you are able to prospect and win back old clients.
Whilst you wait for this to kick in, you'll receive various leads & clients that will be passed down to you from the multinational division. You won't be left to your own devices, you'll be fully supported by an exceptional broking team, claims services and admin division.
