The Mid-Lincolnshire Agency has three offices across the region, located in Bourne, Boston and Sleaford. Deeply rooted within the rural community the Agency has a strong reputation and is perfectly situated to support the community across each site. You’ll support customers with a range of needs in different locations, from bustling historic market towns to the rural countryside and vast coastline.


With a solid foundation of an established and loyal customer base to build on, you’ll support the retention of existing business and work with your partners to develop strategies to drive new business growth in farming, commercial and agriculture-related sectors. Leading from the front, you’ll develop your team as well as getting out in the local community to build long-lasting relationships with new and existing clients.

About you

Ready to be your own boss, you’re sales focused and relish the opportunity to create business plans and implement strategies that provide a professional and personal service to a range of customers, from high-net worth clients to farmers and commercial businesses.


An excellent communicator, you’re great with people from a wide range of backgrounds and can easily spot opportunities and develop new business. A strong and professional leader, you’re a confident influencer who’s used to motivating a team.


Collaborative, positive and supportive, you know how to recruit, reward and develop a strong team to help you achieve your ambitions whilst ensuring all relevant regulations and standards of compliance are met.


You may have knowledge of insurance or finance but as our existing Agents come from a broad range of backgrounds, it’s more important that you know how to use your entrepreneurial flair and clear vision to grow your business.

NFU Group Secretary

The National Farmers Union (NFU) represents the voice of agriculture up to the highest levels, on both national and international platforms. For more than 110 years, the NFU and NFU Mutual have enjoyed a close relationship, working together to provide a first-class service to the farming and wider rural community.


As an NFU Group Secretary you’ll play a major role at the heart of your local farming community. You'll champion the interests of local farmers, arrange local meetings and events, recruit and retain members and keep them up-to-date on agricultural policy. With full backing from the NFU, you’ll have access to expert advice and specialist support on everything from policy and increasing membership to marketing and media.


Combining your duties as an NFU Group Secretary with your work as an Agent of NFU Mutual gives you the chance to make the most of new opportunities for your agency, as well as introducing what the NFU and NFU Mutual have to offer to a wider audience. The roles are intrinsically linked.

Rewards and benefits

As an Agent of NFU Mutual and a Partner with the existing Agents in the NFU Mutual Agency network, you’ll be joining an established business in an existing office, so won’t need to make any up-front capital investment.

This unique self-employed opportunity gives you the autonomy to grow an existing business with the backing of a major organisation whilst enjoying the freedom of being your own boss.


As well as investment support, you’ll also have access to a full range of courses at our dedicated Training Academy; including sales, business and finance planning, team recruitment and NFU Mutual products. We’ll also support you to gain your Chartered Insurance Institute certification.
