Salary to attract the best Benefits Bonus

Our client is a privately owned Fast Track 100 Company. A business that employs close to 2000 people with a turnover approaching £3 billion. Through their 30-year history they have grown organically and through acquisition. Their diverse business portfolio positions them well for further profitable growth at rapid pace globally.

In this business there is no limit to opportunity.

Due to continued growth within their B2B insurance portfolio, they have an outstanding opportunity for an experienced sales director within the insurance industry to lead a highly motivated, high-performing field sales team.

As the Field Sales Director you will utilise your extensive experience alongside existing contacts within the B2B insurance industry to continue, and build upon, the success of the team. You will be tasked with making the field sales team the most envied within the group for seeking improvements alongside systematically delivering results.
