Our client is a large independent broker and they are currently seeking ambitious Commercial Account Executives who have become disaffected with corporate life (on the back of numerous Mergers & Acquisitions) and who are keen to start their own Insurance Broking business.

The position available is a Self-Employed Account Executive role - and you can be based anywhere in the UK.

Earnings: You will keep a high percentage of all earnings, inclusive of fees and Premium Finance Overriders. It is also important to note that, unlike other networks, our client makes no other charges for their services

Minimum requirement:

  • Ideally, a minimum of 3 years in a client facing position with a broker, most often gained in an Account Executive role controlling a book of business.
  • CII or progress towards is preferred.
  • You will require a computer/lap top, printer and a mode of transport.

You may be put off 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 their inability to get adequate levels of service from Insurers who may not be interested in small start-up brokerages.

The solution for you is to set up as an Appointed Representatives through our client’s brokerage. You will receive superb ‘back office’ support for Account Handling, Broking, Claims, Credit Control, Marketing etc, alongside looking after their compliance needs and, critically, giving you immediate access to top drawer service and remuneration from Insurers, thus making you competitive from Day One.

Our clients AR offering is growing significantly but it is important to stress that their own acceptance criteria is set at a high level so anyone gaining AR status can be satisfied that they are on the right track for success.

Many of our clients 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.
