Central Exeter – Hybrid working available

 

If you’re a motivated, ambitious, and passionate individual who is ready to focus on progressing your career to the next level, then this might be the role for you.

Our client is one of the UK’s most respected financial companies who are looking to hire exceptional talent to put in front of their clients. They believe that customers come first, quality counts and doing things the right way goes a long way.


Our client is looking for an energetic, enthusiastic, and driven individual who can provide exceptional customer service as well as having the hunger to grow and hit targets!
From the approach to their customers to the way they look after their staff, this company has brilliant culture and values. This role is all about listening to your customers and understanding their needs to provide the best service and advice you can.

You will be empathetic, great at building a rapport with your customers and comfortable discussing sensitive issues over the phone.
You don’t need previous experience with selling insurance, as long as you’re a fast learner and are willing to work hard to learn the ropes.


What is required:

  • Sales experience

  • Strong telephone communication skills

  • Desire to put the customer first

  • Strong sales ability based upon identifying customer needs

  • Attention to detail

  • Target-driven


What you’ll receive:

  • Grow your career – Always look to promote from within

  • In-house management and team leader training

  • We’ll help and fund your study towards the Diploma in Regulated Financial Planning

  • 6 months of targets hit and working to our values = become recognised as a Senior Insurance Adviser and pay increase to £24,000.

  • Pension

  • Private Medical Insurance

  • 20 days holiday which increases with length of service

  • Friendly, relaxed but professional environment

  • Be surrounded by fantastic colleagues – our people are our greatest asset!


If you looking to join a large business with a ‘big company’ mentality this may not be for you, but if you’re looking to be more than just a number and play a key role within a business, then this is a great opportunity.

Our client understands personal life and a work-life balance is so important, so much so each employee has their own work pattern to suit them. Our client will also fund a Diploma in financial planning plus they increase your salary with each qualification you obtain.

This really is an incredible opportunity for someone from a customer service or softer sales background, looking to always learn and develop their skills. Ideally, you’ll come from a finance background (banking, insurance, accounting) but we are open to seeing people from other industries with the right personality and drive.
