If you're a recent Graduate with degree in a Business/ Finance field and are looking for a rewarding, supportive launch-pad into a career in Commercial Insurance Broking, we want to hear from you.

We're looking for 3 people who could make a really positive difference and bring confidence, enthusiasm and bags of initiative to our successful and dynamic Commercial Enterprise & Schemes Team in Burgess Hill, West Sussex.

THE ROLE

Our Commercial Enterprise & Schemes Team is one of the largest, dynamic and most successful teams in Sutton Winson and provides business insurance protection and solutions to a variety of small to medium sized business across the South East and beyond.

This is a full time, permanent position where you'll play a key part in the team through an initial 2-year Graduate programme. You'll gain some fantastic experience through supporting the Team in serving our clients and developing new business opportunities and work towards becoming a fully trained and qualified Client Technician.

We'll support you all the way with your learning, so no previous Insurance experience is required and we'll work with you to ensure that you're enjoying your role and feeling fulfilled with what and how you're learning.

Our promise to you is to offer you a role that provides exposure to leading people within our industry and an opportunity to develop your skills through hands-on experience.

  • Manage policy renewals effectively and with accuracy
  • Draft reports professionally and chase clients for information
  • Provide support to the Team

Whilst you will be based in our Burgess Hill office, you may occasionally be asked to attend external client meetings. It's therefore essential that you are able to offer a degree of flexibility around your core hours.

  • Educated to Degree level (or equivalent) within the last 2 years, with good A Level and GCSE passes
  • We'd also like to see evidence of team working, whether through sport, volunteering or club membership

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT FROM US

  • A rewarding role within a supportive and fun working environment
  • A generous annual salary reviewed EVERY 6 MONTHS within the first 2 years PLUS Annual Profit Share Bonus
