Full Time

Our client, a leading national Friendly Society, is seeking a Business Development Consultant to assist its National Head of Sales in developing its existing intermediary client base.

The firm prides itself on its enviable reputation among intermediaries for delivering the right products for their clients’ needs. Based in the North West, but operating across the UK, it engages with a broad spectrum of IFA firms, ranging from small local practices to national concerns. You will utilise a well-recognised and highly reputable brand, giving you the opportunity to manage and develop clients within this target market, enabling you to exceed expectations.

Through structured sales and marketing plans, you will attract new business across the IFA/ Intermediary market, promoting its products and services, with a particular focus on income protection and over 50’s insurance plans. You will be provided all the necessary data and marketing tools in order to generate new business enquiries, as well as being supported by an office based team that will book appointments for you. In addition, you will develop and nurture strategic relationships with key clients, delivering a superior client service, ensuring that these accounts are appropriately managed.

Ideally you will have working knowledge of both the IFA/ financial advice market and Friendly Society products, but it is absolutely essential that you have a strong understanding of protection and insurance products. You will have experience in a similar role and have the necessary interpersonal and communication skills in order to succeed in a face to face sales role.

In return, you will enjoy an attractive basic salary, plus substantial bonus earnings potential and comprehensive benefits package to include car allowance. A key selling point of the role is the development opportunity within a major player in the industry, affording you the ability to progress your career, being supported in broadening your knowledge and gaining further qualifications.
