Insurance Sales Agent – no cold calling

Join our non-advised sales team at Direct Life, a leading life insurance broker based in the centre of Chichester.

Your role would involve completing applications by following scripts to discuss a client’s needs, explaining products, running various quotes and collecting medical and lifestyle information.

Our office is based in the centre of Chichester. However, due to the current pandemic, you will be required to work from home until such time it is appropriate to return to the office. This means the successful applicant must have good broadband and home working space.

Week 1

Mon to Thurs 9.30am – 7pm and Fri 9.30am – 1pm

Week 2

Mon to Thurs 10.30am – 8pm and Fri 9.30am – 1pm

However, some variation on this working pattern would be considered.

We are looking for the following experience and skills:

  • Previous experience in the financial services is desirable, although not essential
  • Proven experience in a sales/customer service role
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  • Outstanding negotiating skills, with the ability to persuade and resolve issues
  • Ability to learn about the Company’s products and services, and describe and explain them.

Our benefits:

  • You get the day off on your Birthday
  • Access to Perkbox – employee portal offering a huge range of perks, free treats and benefits
  • Generous holiday entitlement (plus all the bank holidays)
  • Life Cover
  • Private Medical Insurance
  • Pension Scheme
  • Eye Voucher Scheme
  • Employee Assistance Programme

If you enjoy speaking to customers on the telephone and securing results, we’d love to hear from you!

Interviews to be held from w/c: Monday 15 March 2021.
