Senior Account Handler

Do you love a challenge? We do.

Safeguard is a small but perfectly formed insurance broker, willing to punch above our weight.

Our competitors have described us as a ‘Sleeping Giant’ – we’ll take that one.

We are looking for someone with the hunger and drive it takes to be part of our team.

We don’t do ‘vanilla’

Working for national brokers at corporate companies can be soul destroying. You will have to treat your clients in a particular way, play by the book and churn out vanilla work, day on day. Are you treated as a number at work? Are you dissatisfied by your current employer’s restrictions? Stuck in a rut? We might be able to set you free.

At Safeguard, we do things differently.

We treat clients as individuals. We take on unique cases and relish the new challenge. We are experts in a number of specialist trades, including marine and construction. We are impartial and unbiased.

We go above and beyond.

Now we have the opportunity for a Senior Account Handler to join our team in our Kings Hill office. You will act as the primary contact for all your clients, building strong relationships with both them and their suppliers. You will need to have meticulous levels of attention to detail to excel in this role, so much so, that you’re bordering on obsessive.

Desirable Skills

  • Cert CII &/or ACII &/or Fellowship
  • Exceptional communication and relationship building skills
  • Ambitious and motivated
  • 7+ years’ experience in servicing commercial clients
  • Extremely high levels of accuracy and attention to detail
  • Knowledge of Commercial Combined products, Fleet, Marine Trade and Motor Trade policies

The skills above may be useful – but we hire on attitude – not just a polished CV. If you don’t tick all the boxes, don’t be afraid to try anyway. We like that in a candidate.

Key Benefits

  • Private medical/dental care
  • CII qualification training
  • Superior pension scheme
  • 24 days holiday
  • Continuous personal development and skills programmes
  • Progression and succession training
  • 1:1 coaching and mentoring
  • Discounted gym membership at David Lloyd (pending)
  • Dress down days
  • Charity work and events
  • Paid lunch break
  • Free fruit, tea and coffee
