The client

A highly reputable leading insurance provider in Gloucester is looking to recruit a driven and self motivated Sales Consultant to develop and build relationships with a panel of IFAs.

The role

In this role you will work to a sales target agreeing a plan with each of your accounts over the telephone and identifying business opportunities. You will maintain a high degree of contact with introducers via the telephone and in conjunction with the Sales Manager will plan and implement bespoke campaigns and sales and marketing initiatives to fully maximise business potential from your panel of IFAs and introducers.

You will maintain a thorough understanding of all relevant protection insurance products, propositions and legislative requirements and you will be expected to maintain an awareness of market trends and competitors to identify business opportunities.

Previous financial services or insurance industry experience is a must. Perhaps you’ll be working within sales support, or as an existing account manager or perhaps as an IFA/financial consultant whatever you will be comfortable in a targeted environment. You should be a driven individual who will demonstrate a commitment to personal development.

You will be given every opportunity to substantially improve your basic salary with a bonus scheme in a developing and rapidly expanding area of the Financial Services industry.
