Insurance Business Partner
About NFU Mutual
As a successful, growing insurance and financial services company with an award-winning range of products and services, we serve a range of customers, from individual policyholders to major businesses. We’re a mutual, which means our customers are also our members and we develop long-standing relationships with them, based on exceptional personal service and honest advice. This means we really know our market and retain 95% of business each year. As one of our Agents, you’ll be able to run and develop your business from a position of real strength.
We attract a wide range of customers, from individual policyholders to affluent individuals and major businesses. As one of our Agents, your business will rely on the strength of the relationships you build with these customers. This means you’ll need the ability to build trust and confidence with a variety of different people and understand what drives them, so you can give them the best financial support and advice.
Our Godalming Agency is one of the ‘highest potential’ Agencies in our network. Working with an established and loyal base of clients, you’ll enjoy the challenge of breaking into the non-farming market, while maintaining the high levels of service our existing clients are used to. The current Agent is well respected in the local farming market.
Your opportunity as an NFU Mutual Agent
We’re looking for business leaders, rather than insurance specialists, although knowledge of insurance or finance would be useful. As an Agent, you’ll be your own boss, running an Agency under the NFU Mutual name, selling our award-winning products and services. You’ll have the freedom to develop plans and strategies, recruit a team and expand your ambitions. It’s a chance to use your entrepreneurial flair to grow a business with a full range of customers, from farmers to homeowners, commercial businesses to car owners.
This means you’ll need a combination of personal and professional qualities. You’ll be an excellent communicator, great with people from a wide range of backgrounds, with the ability to spot a sales opportunity and develop new business. With an entrepreneurial attitude and a clear vision, you’ll be commercially sharp and open to innovations to continually improve your Agency.
As well as being a strong and influential business leader, you’ll also be an inspirational and motivational manager to your team. Collaborative, positive and supportive, you’ll give them opportunities to develop their talents, while making sure they work to all relevant regulations and standards of compliance.
Rewards and benefits
You’ll be taking over an established business, so won’t need to make any up-front capital investment and as a self-employed Agent, your income will be incorporated within the business financials. You’ll have the freedom to grow your business; to recruit, reward and develop your staff; and to lead with the autonomy of an entrepreneur, all with the backing of a major organisation. As well as investment support, we’ll give you access to a full range of courses at our dedicated Training Academy, such as sales, business and finance planning, team recruitment and NFU Mutual products. We’ll also support you in gaining Chartered Institute of Insurers certification.
