With their commercial book growing at a rate of 15-20% year on year for the last ten years, a Kildare based brokers are making some changes and looking at the volume of new business coming through so they want to start now by getting the ball rolling on hiring someone to handle that additional volume. With the recent addition of a new Financial Advisor who has delivered for them much faster than expected and with the recent acquisition of another broker, there is a flood of new business coming in.
In the first year you’ll have taken responsibility for a book of business, maintained and retained over 95% of that book. You’ll handle new business as it comes in with no expectation of going prospecting for the business and handle the new business enquiries as they arrive. You’ll handle between 45-50 renewals per month across small farms, shops, property owners and motor trade and handle all combined liability, fleet and management liability enquiries with typical premium spend being €5k and under.
You have at least 3-5 years commercial lines experience and are familiar with commercial underwriters and know where to place a risk correctly. You’ll be able to take charge of the existing book and cross sell those clients. You get along well with people and are extremely organised with good experience of several insurance portals and can work autonomously. You have a steady track record of service in one broker for a sustained period and are CIP qualified with a nice manner and a friendly disposition. You are assertive, organised and ambitious and won’t need hand holding in this role.
You’ll join a team of 12 in the office and work closely alongside two of the more tenured Commercial Lines Executives whilst reporting on a daily basis into the Commercial Director. He operates in a fair, hands off style where he likes to trust the people he works with and doesn’t micromanage.
This is a traditional family owned independent broker that has no intentions of selling out and where they are constantly evolving and open to new ideas. You’ll join an office with a fantastic atmosphere where the emphasis is on spending quality time with their clients and less emphasis on reporting and administration as these are taken on by management.
Base salary, Bonus, Health Insurance (post six months probation), DC Pension, DIS 4x salary.
