We’re looking for a self-motivated and experienced tele sales development coordinator that’s looking to forge ahead in their career with the fastest growing independent insurance broker in the UK.

You would be at the coalface of the business and be a prospective customer’s first interaction with our dynamic, award winning customer experience team.

You’ll be our foot through the door and the one that holds it open.

You will receive full training.

WHO YOU’LL BE WORKING FOR

We’ve got a fast-paced environment but with a distinctly friendly and informal feel around our offices.

We know that you can do great work without the suits. We believe in making a difference, teamwork and putting the customer first in everything that we do. It’s an approach that’s allowed us to keep delivering award winning products and services for over 22 years

On a typical day, you might be:

  • Maintain and develop a computerized customer and prospect database.
  • Plan and carry out direct marketing activities (principally tele sales) to agreed sales volumes, values and timescales.
  • Develop ideas and create opportunities for direct tele sales to major accounts.
  • Ensure all prospect records are maintained.

  • Produce reports for account executives.
  • Update presentation software for new business presentations.
  • You will receive support and guidance from your manager on-going to aid your on-going development
  • Ensuring that the Policies of the company are observed and that good practice is encouraged, particularly in the areas of Health & Safety, Equal Opportunities and confidentiality.

As part of your contract of employment completion of the Apprenticeship Training Programme forms part of your duties as well as helping your personal and professional development; the requirements to complete the programme are as follows:

  • Attend and be punctual for all induction sessions.
  • Attend and be punctual for all lessons with regards to your apprenticeship programme.
  • Complete all required assignments with regards to your apprenticeship by the required timeline.
  • Build up your portfolio of evidence on-going during your apprenticeship programme. Access support from your tutor/assessor as and when required
  • Access support from your manager with regards to any evidence requirements or support as and when required
  • Attend all work-based training/support sessions

The above is not an exhaustive list of duties and you will be expected to perform different tasks as necessitated by the organisation which is relevant to your post within the company to meet the overall business objectives.
