NFU Mutual Agent opportunity in Ipswich

Are you ready to grow your own insurance business?
As a Partner in the Ipswich Agency, you’ll have the unique self-employed opportunity to run and develop an already established and successful business within the NFU Mutual Agency network.

The Ipswich Agency is highly respected and has a strong reputation within the local business community. You’d be working alongside two experienced business partners and together lead a knowledgeable team who already successfully provide insurance and financial services to a broad mix of farming and commercial clients.

This is a team that puts customers at the heart of everything they do. It’s what the agency’s reputation within the local business community has been built on. Building on this success, your role will be to focus on driving business growth with new commercial clients across the lively and well-connected Ipswich town and wider region.

Self-motivated and entrepreneurial, you’ll develop strategies to grow the commercial arm of the business and build strong long-lasting relationships with the existing loyal customer base. Your day to day tasks will include motivating, supporting and developing your team to consistently deliver excellent results whilst you deliver your own personal sales performance, providing a valuable contribution to the agency achieving its targets.

About you

Ready to be your own boss, you are sales focused and will relish the opportunity to work with your partners to create business plans and implement strategies that provide a professional and personal service to 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.

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.

As a self-employed Agent, you’ll have a 1st year estimated OTE of up to £40k with genuine prospects for growth. Your drive, vision and personal ambition are the only limit to your future earning potential.

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.
