Appointed Representatives – London & South East - £Negotiable
Our client is a large independent broker who are aiming to grow the biggest network of Appointed Representatives across the UK.
Their proposition is for Insurance Professionals who have become disaffected with corporate life (for example on the back of numerous Mergers & Acquisitions) and who are keen to start their own Insurance Broking business. If this is something that you have considered but been put off of by the risk of making the leap from employment to self-employment, the costs of setting up your own brokerage, the rigours of obtaining FCA approvals, the burden of Compliance and the inability to get adequate levels of service from Insurers who may not be interested in small start-up brokerages – then these opportunities could provide the perfect solution. Our client will provide ‘back office’ support for Account Handling, Broking, Claims, Credit Control, Marketing etc, alongside looking after compliance needs and, critically, giving immediate access to top drawer service and remuneration from Insurers, thus making you competitive from Day One.
Many of their Appointed Representatives have eventually grown to a scale where they feel comfortable to obtain their own FCA approvals and to start trading as independent Insurance Brokers and a key part of their proposition is to help them to achieve their ambitions. Ideal candidates are typically Commercial Account Executives in the broking sector, or occasionally Insurer staff with the right technical background. Additional detailed information is available upon request.
