Lastly, you will be responsible for ensuring any materials, correspondence and policy documentation reach the client in a timely manner with a high degree of accuracy.


You will have at least 3 years’ experience working in the Insurance Industry, specifically dealing directly with and having a broad knowledge of Commercial Lines products and services. In addition, it will be an essential requirement you have an ability to assess risk and suitability.
