About the role
New Business is an exciting place to be – it is the frontline of Admiral as many of the customers who ring up will never have had any dealings with the company before. Most of our New Business customers will have already sourced a quotation from the internet from a price comparison website and will be calling to purchase their insurance for the year. It’s a sales role with a difference, callers want to buy! Nonetheless, we would expect you to add value by cross selling any products that are useful to our customers, to ensure they are getting the best cover they can.
We are looking for individuals with active listening skills who can bring their outgoing personality to the role, with the emotional resilience to work under pressure in a customer facing role. This is a complex role, which will include motor, van and household insurance, so you will need to get to grips with all three products, absorbing the theory before applying it practically on calls. It is important that you enjoy challenges and pushing yourself, but also thrive off constructive feedback, we will give you lots of feedback to help you improve your skillset, to help you earn as much incentive as you can.
This is a full-time position with long-term career prospects on offer. You will need to be flexible as we will expect working from home and the office alongside your team and manager who will be there to support you every day. In addition to the base salary of £18000, after their probationary period New Business staff earn on average £280 per month incentive and potential earnings are up to £1000 per month on top of your basic salary.. However, please note that you will not earn incentive during your training period of the first 2 months. New Business also offer various overtime packages frequently to help further boost any earnings
You don’t need any previous sales experience, but you will need confidence and a willingness to learn. Also, in a sales environment, a competitive mindset will fit in well. You’ll use basic computer skills and your upbeat personality to manage daily incoming calls. We will teach you all the product knowledge you need to help you excel, but we need you to have the confidence needed to take initiative when it comes to upselling.
Ultimately, we need you to be tenacious in the face of a challenge, with the motivation to push yourself to succeed and meet targets, whilst never losing sight of the importance of empathy and excellent customer service.
The New Business team has an amazing culture that reflects Admiral. The people who work here are humble, supportive, encourage each other and are always keen to see their colleagues do well.
