Business Director - Marine/Transportation
You've got a few years broking experience under your belt, you've voiced to your boss that the next step for your development is to move into an Account Executive role. 6 months later, nothing's happened. You feel they are holding you back because they don't want to lose resource in the broking department. You can't wait around forever otherwise your career development is on hold. You're ready for that next step up. This is the opportunity for you.
The Sales Director within one of the UK's slickest, independent commercial brokerages (offices in Leeds/Bradford) is looking to find his next superstar, who's looking to be coached, developed and trained to become a fully-fledged, successful Account Executive.
As a Trainee Commercial Account Executive, you'll have the opportunity to shadow your senior peers, learn about sales techniques to use when negotiating with clients, all whilst having the opportunity to meet prospective and existing customers face to face.

You won't be starting from scratch, you clearly have the technical knowledge under your belt, you just need to apply this face to face.
Joining the team, you'll have full telemarketing team to generate you client meetings for you to attend, a team of dedicated, qualified Account Handlers who have your back, an incredibly supportive senior management team who aren't peering over your shoulders looking for the next sale but encourage you to grow and become more confident?
