Handling inbound calls, your role will be to guide your customers through the buying process, informing them of both our insurance products and our related ancillary products. This allows the customer the opportunity to shape their policy to meet their personal car insurance requirements.

The insurance sales job is challenging and competitive, which is why the better you perform, the more lucrative the rewards. Our incentive structure benefits motivated individuals who show a flair for both sales and customer service.

  • Positive and resilient to handle any challenge that arises
  • Enthusiastic learners who apply feedback to grow in their role and achieve their goals
  • Talented salespeople with the ability to upsell multicar and multiproduct
  • IT savvy to swiftly update customers details correctly

No previous experience in insurance or call centres is required. We consider the potential of the candidate, eagerness to work with us, ambition, and enthusiasm, over any previous experience in a similar role. We will teach you the rest!
