The new business Account Executive is a bit of a rare animal. The thrill of the chase isn't for everyone, but then, you're not everyone. Not only do you thrive off the 'chase' but pride yourself on your ability to juggle an outstanding level of service with a natural skill for closing a sale. IDEX are proud to be partnered with an award-winning broker based in the Gloucester area, who are recruiting an Account Executive to join their growing commercial team.

Targeting a broad range of commercial risks, my client has built especially strong relationships within the construction, engineering, professional services and contractor sectors, to name a few.
The level of customer service provided is what makes my client stand out above the competition, quick wins are no comparison to long term partnerships that benefit both parties. Maintaining and growing this reputation is paramount.
As a new business Account Executive, you will take up a proactive approach when winning new instructions within the professional indemnity space, utilising your business development skills to get in front of clients, before letting your rapport building expertise take over once you're face to face.

You should hold experience within a commercial insurance sales capacity, preferably in an Account Executive position, with a track record of targeting and winning new clients before showing the ability to retain key clients.
Expertise within the professional indemnity space and qualifications such as Cert CII or above would be advantageous.
You will be rewarded with an attractive basic salary of up to £40,000, along with car allowance and competitive bonus structure.
