Current Vacancies

NFU Scotland Group Secretary / Insurance Sales Agent/ - Stornoway

About NFU Mutual and our agency network

As a successful, growing insurance and financial services company with an award-winning range of products and services, we serve a range of customers, from individual policyholders to major businesses. We’re a mutual, which means our customers are also our members and we develop long-standing relationships with them, based on exceptional personal service and honest advice. This means we really know our market and retain 95% of business each year. As one of our Agents, you’ll be able to run and develop your business from a position of real strength.

Our Stornoway and Skye Agency merged several years ago allowing a local service to our members in the Hebrides and Western Isles. The vacancy is based in our Stornoway Agency in the main town of the Isle of Lewis. Working alongside an established Senior Agent, you’ll enjoy the challenge of growing the farming and non-farming business. Working with an established, loyal base of rural and farming members as well as a highly supportive and active NFU Scotland branch in the agricultural market, you'll find plenty of opportunity to build on a number of strong existing client relationships that continue to bring in new business.

Your opportunity as an NFU Mutual Agent & NFU Group Secretary

We’re looking for business leaders, rather than insurance specialists, although knowledge of insurance or finance would be useful. As an Agent, you’ll be your own boss, running an agency under NFU Mutual's name, selling our award-winning products and services. You’ll have the freedom to develop plans and strategies and manage the existing team which operates across both locations. It’s a chance to use your entrepreneurial flair to grow a business with a full range of customers, from farmers to homeowners, commercial businesses to car owners.

This means you’ll need a combination of personal and professional qualities. You’ll be an excellent communicator, great with people from a wide range of backgrounds, with the ability to spot a sales opportunity and develop new business. With an entrepreneurial attitude and a clear vision, you’ll be commercially sharp and open to innovations to continually improve your agency.

As well as being a strong and influential business leader, you’ll also be an inspirational and motivational manager to your team. Collaborative, positive and supportive, you’ll give them opportunities to develop their talents, while making sure they work to all relevant regulations and standards of compliance.

You’ll also play a major role in the farming community as your area’s NFU Scotland Group Secretary. NFU Scotland represent the voice of agriculture up to the highest levels. You’ll play a major role in this, championing local farmers’ interests, arranging local meetings and events, recruiting and retaining members and keeping them up-to-date on union policy. This will put you at the heart of the local rural community, giving you the chance to make the most of new business opportunities for your Agency. With full backing from the union, you’ll have access to expert advice and specialist support on everything from policy and increasing membership to marketing and media.

Rewards and benefits

You’ll be joining an established business, so won’t need to make any up-front capital investment and as a self-employed Agent, your income will be incorporated within the business financials. You’ll have the freedom to grow your business; to recruit, reward and develop your staff; and to lead with the autonomy of an entrepreneur, all with the backing of a major organisation. As well as investment support, we’ll give you access to a full range of courses at our dedicated Training Academy, such as sales, business and finance planning, team recruitment and NFU Mutual products. We’ll also support you in gaining Chartered Institute of Insurers certification.

On target earnings up to £40k.

  • Do you have a passion for customer service?
  • Do you enjoy interacting with people, building networks and playing an active role in the community?
  • Do you have knowledge of farming and agriculture?

 If the answers to these are yes, then we are looking forward to hearing from you.

Ready to apply?

Just imagine. Running your own business. Building your own team. Creating your own strategies. Managing your own personal and professional time. Most of all, controlling your own destiny. And all with the support of a leading UK insurer. Make it reality. Call Michaela Holder on 01789 202080 or alternatively email michaela_holder@nfumutual.co.uk to find out more.

Closing date: 27th October 2019
