Commercial Account Handler

Perm, £22 - 26K DOE
Apply for this job ref: HO537

Are you looking to take your commercial insurance experience to an established, local company? Are you Cert CII qualified and keen to progress into account management?

Our client is an established insurance broker based in Gloucester – a local company, looking after local businesses who also have targeted, specialist outreach to a national base of clients. Operating from a modern, open plan office they pride themselves on looking after their people; investing in training and development and encouraging everyone to study for CII qualifications. Despite growing hugely since their beginnings, their values and family run ethos remain central to their work.

They are looking to expand their team with the addition of a successful Commercial Accounts Assistant. Supporting the Commercial Director and Account Managers; assisting with claims, amendments and new business enquiries on the commercial accounts side of the business. Telephone, emails and letters will be your tools of communication as you get to know the accounts, assist their maintenance and growth and look to progress into account management yourself.

You will have already built some experience in commercial insurance broking, perhaps within a national company, and will be looking to bring those skills to grow your career with this new opportunity. You will be Cert CII qualified, looking to work towards your Dip CII in the not-too-distant future, with a good knowledge of the principles, practices and legalities of general insurance.

You will need an excellent telephone manner, communication skills and the ability to work with Microsoft Office suite. Sales skills, customer relations and accounts experience would also be a definite asset to your application. As commercial insurance is a fast-paced, precise industry, organisation and planning skills are imperative and something you will need to be able to evidence well.

We are looking for a driven, passionate person with the base skills in place; someone who aims high, delivers results and wants to step up the ladder in commercial insurance.

Think that’s you? Send us your CV and we promise to get back to you.
