If you are an Account Executive looking after commercial clients seeking a career move to future-proof yourself, then my client should be at the top of your list of places to work.

In the last few years, this Award winning Independent Broker has transformed from an insurtech start-up, building their own end-end broking platform, to having more than 20 Account Executives spread across the UK trading and growing client books. They are enhanced by their technology and efficient ways of working.

Their values are simple, adult-adult relationships, transparency, and professionalism. They believe by employing highly expert commercial insurance brokers with risk insights in their chosen specialty, they can build a supportive and collaborative environment where both the employees broking the risks (you) and your clients see the benefits.

They are a multi-niche organisation, and have insurer agencies to cover the whole market, meaning they are looking to work with brokers from different backgrounds and experience, for you to find a long-term home for your clients where they can be sure they are looked after properly by you.

If you have thought of becoming an AR or setting up your own brokerage but didn't want the risk and hassle of regulation, or don't enjoy being a small cog in a large corporate environment, joining this company in their employee setup could be the answer you have been looking for. Their central team look after insurer agencies, compliance, technology, marketing plus other support, meaning you spend more of your time advising clients and reaching your targets. It's the best of both worlds!

If your client portfolio includes commercial clients (SME-mid-market), plus you use risk management alongside insurance products to ensure the best for your clients, then they want to talk to you.
