Working closely with a number of exclusive schemes, the major insurers and a team of DA Underwriters, you will have major scope in terms of markets in which to place risks.

You will be an important source of motivation to the team, providing dynamic support, working closely with the Directors setting realistic and achievable targets and assisting your team in achieving those targets. This role requires a positive individual able to support the team, identify and implement training etc. 

Ideal applicants will have some form of sales management / assistant manager experience, dynamic and friendly in approach, supportive and committed to getting the best out of the team, creating a fun and enjoyable working environment.

Previous commercial insurance experience would be preferred, although we are more than happy to receive applications from individuals from all insurance or professional sales based environments.

This role comes with an excellent basic salary, a generous bonus and a fantastic benefits package including a high pension contribution and a guaranteed parking space in Leeds City Centre.

This role can be performed on a part office / part home working basis.
