If you are an entrepreneurial sales professional with an in-depth understanding of the insurance market, this is a superb opportunity to drive the success of an innovative business.

Our client is the leading insurance finance company in the UK and Ireland. They are now looking for an Account Manager to drive the business forward within the Insurer sector.

Our client offers a diverse, challenging and engaging environment where employees are recognised and well-rewarded for their successes.

In this integral role, you will have the chance to make a positive, lasting impact on their business and take ownership of some of their most important accounts.

As the Insurer Account Manager, you will achieve financed targets by maximising profitability with existing Insurer accounts and successfully acquiring new major accounts.

Working with the Sales Director, you will produce an annual business plan to increase revenue from major accounts and compile a prospect list of brokers.

You will develop and maintain strong working relationships with major accounts and ensure that a world-class level of service is consistently delivered.

Additionally, your duties will involve:
- Ensuring the successful renewal of trading agreements
- Attending road shows, exhibitions and functions as requested
- Providing training to brokers
- Reporting on existing accounts and new business
- Keeping abreast of changes within the insurance industry

To be considered for this exciting opportunity, you will need:
- At least five years’ sales experience, focusing on revenue generation
- A consistent track record of overachievement
- Excellent knowledge of the insurance market

Results-driven and highly motivated, as the Insurer Account Manager, you’ll be able to build strong relationships with senior stakeholders and present solutions at Board level with confidence. You’ll also be articulate with excellent influencing and negotiation skills.

Experience of insurance finance would be beneficial, as would sales experience gained within a B2B insurance environment. Extensive knowledge of the broking market, including software systems and business practice, would also be an advantage.

Most of their major accounts are based within the London area. As such, the successful candidate must be able to commute to London.
