Insurance Sales Agent/ NFUS Group Secretary
Location : Cupar
How does a business grow? It needs a sustainable customer base, solid foundations, plenty of support and, of course, an inspiring, hardworking leader to run and manage it. Therefore, we’re looking for a sales professional to join our Cupar agency as a self-employed tied Agent, serving the financial needs of local members.
With the support of NFU Mutual behind you don’t need to worry about establishing a new business, as you will be working in partnership and everything is set up and ready to go – the office, the support (from both field-based NFU Mutual experts and those based at our Head office), the award-winning products, the staff, even the business customers for you to network with.
In your NFU Scotland Group Secretary role, you'll provide assistance and direction on a variety of issues, sell NFU Scotland's range of membership services and champion Scottish farming by representing local farmers and related rural businesses.
So if you’re ambitious, commercially-minded and brilliant at building profitable relationships we would love you to apply.
Closing Date: 14 June 2016
Assessment Day: 22 June 2016 - Located at NFU Mutual's Assessment Centre, Glasgow
Second Stage Interviews: 1 July 2016
Please note you will be working on a self-employed basis and will not be directly employed by NFU Mutual.

With previous experience of sales you need to be highly motivated, with a desire to be your own boss by managing and leading a successful team. You’ll be an excellent communicator, have a flair for figures and a passion to grow and develop a business. You’ll have the ability to form excellent relationships with our customers and colleagues and be acceptable to relocation.
