Due to the continued acquisition of quality accounts, this global broking house seeks a Senior or Corporate Account Handler to join its thriving Coventry office. This team deals with clients from a wide range of industries, but the Corporate Unit's portfolio has a definite bias towards clients within such sectors as Life Science, Technology, Research & Design and Telecoms. Clients range in size and complexity from £10K, right up to six-figure commission and fee income.

Given the fast-moving nature of these sectors, many of these clients are enjoying impressive growth trajectories - going from relatively straight-forward insurance arrangements with modest premiums, to their first global programmes and complex exposures in a very short period of time.You will be tasked with developing a detailed knowledge of your clients' businesses and the industries in which they operate. You'll scrutinise their insurance arrangements, ensuring that their exposures to risk are adequately covered and, where gaps in cover exist, suggest innovative solutions to mitigate these. You will negotiate with insurers to obtain the most comprehensive levels of cover at competitive premiums. In addition, you'll prepare renewals, deal with any mid-term amendments, and put together a range of reports and documentation in a timely and compliant fashion. You will also get the opportunity to join Corporate Account Executives and visit clients at their premises, in order to further strengthen relationships and understanding of their businesses.

Whilst it is not essential that you are currently dealing with corporate and global clients generating six-figure fees, it is essential that you have some exposure to cases generating £5K income and above. You must also have a good working knowledge of all common commercial covers such as Property, Liability, Commercial Combined and Professional Indemnity.

Our client is based in superb offices in a fantastic business park just outside Coventry, so it's likely that you would need to be able to drive. However, you will be welcome to work from home a couple of days per week, if desired.

The role is anticipated to pay to around £45,000, although this is negotiable for outstanding candidates. You will also receive a comprehensive, flexible-benefits package that can be tweaked to your circumstances. For the ambitious, this office is well-known for promoting from within, and you will benefit from a vast array of career progression opportunities (such as specialising in niche areas of insurance, moving into a managerial position, or adopting a more client-facing role).Aston Charles - a personalised service from industry expertsGeneral Insurance and Financial Services RecruitmentFor more jobs like this, or for more information on how we may be able to help you in your search for a new job, please visit our website
