Do you want to join a team that’s about to embark on the most exciting journey in its history?

A team that is enjoying 95% year-on-year new business growth?

A team that is hungry, dynamic and going places?

Then we might be the place for you.

Age Partnership is not your usual financial services business. We are looking for an enthusiastic, friendly and passionate account manager who genuinely cares about their clients.

So what will you be doing?

  • In a nutshell, business-to-business account management. Age Partnership delivers best-in-class products and services to those seeking a better retirement, and more businesses need to know about this

  • You’ve already got a captive audience of over 1000 businesses who love us but we need more

  • You’ll embrace new challenges and delighting customers. Financial services sales can be pretty dull so don’t make it ****** the one that stands out

  • We all like to deal with people that are helpful and add value to our lives right? Good, so do our business partners, they don’t want to be sold to, they want to come off the call with you thinking “wow, that person cared about me and my business”

  • We want our business partners to come back time and time again, you will be their point of contact, their go to person, who knows over time even their mate

  • It’s a really varied role, one day you’ll be farming, one day you will be hunting, but never is one day the same
