This independent broker has been trading in Shrewsbury for several generations and has built a fine reputation across a wide variety of industries, not least the Agricultural sector.
Indeed, its Principal is from a farming family and deeply understands the issues that affect people who live and work in the rural community. As a result of the continued acquisition of quality accounts, the need has arisen for an additional Account Handler to join the Agricultural Team.
You will provide a high level of broking support on the Principal’s portfolio of accounts, including outright agricultural business, and also clients such as farmers who have diversified into other businesses. As such, you will be dealing with a variety of specialist lines (such as Deterioration of Stock, Livestock and Milk in Tanks) through to more mainstream covers such as Property, Liability and Business Interruption.
You will deal with clients throughout the lifecycle of their insurance policy, building up a sound understanding of their business and advising them on the best insurance arrangements to suit their needs. You will make any necessary mid-term amendments, help prepare for renewals and answer any day to day enquiries.
It is envisioned that you will have experience of working within an Agricultural insurance environment, although our client will consider applications from candidates who have extensive commercial insurance experience and can demonstrate a deep understanding of the Agricultural sector (i.e. coming from a farming background or having a keen interest in rural pursuits).
Given the broad range of personalities and socio-economic backgrounds of people within the farming community, you must have a professional, adaptable communication style and be confident in your ability to build rapport with people from all walks of life.
In return, you will receive a generous basic salary and competitive benefits package, including support towards professional qualifications under the CII.
