Playing an integral part in the Commercial Team in Twickenham, you will have a solid knowledge of all Commercial Lines as well as considerable New Business Development and Client Management experience.
You’ll be a proactive New Business producer, able to demonstrate a specialist-level understanding of business innovation and the future risks to be insured, as well as having proven experience of building and growing your own book of business.
You’ll thrive on making a difference to a company, be a professional and convincing communicator, and enjoy being challenged in role that gives you balance and reward in equal measures.

You will also act as a point of technical reference to the wider company, with the possibility of providing informal internal training in the future.
Whilst you will be based in Twickenham, your clients will be based around the UK, so there will naturally be an element of travel involved in this role. It’s therefore essential that you are able to offer a degree of flexibility around your core hours.
