What we’re looking for:

  • Someone who is AMBITIOUS, COMPETITIVE and willing to HUSTLE. Ultimately this is a production job and you will be competing to get and keep business against lot’s of other producers externally.
  • Someone who is looking for A PEOPLE JOB. You must like people and being with people. The job will require you to build relationships, foster them and maintain them with prospects, current clients and peers.

  • Someone who wants a predictable 9 – 5 job; who wants to coast.
  • Someone who wants to be told what to do and likes to be micromanaged.

  • A wallflower who does not enjoy getting out with people.

More specific skills:

  • Good communication skills
  • Sales and marketing skills and experience a big plus
  • P&C Insurance experience a big plus.

INITIALLY – AN UNDERWRITING ASSISTANT.The responsibilities include all of the daily activities of an underwriter/broker (there are a lot).

ULTIMATELY – A PRODUCER. While the starting position is an assistant, we're looking for someone who wants to get promoted here and ultimately be a PRODUCER, grow their career, grow our company and contribute to our culture. Your ultimate level of success, and ultimate level of compensation, will only be restricted by YOUR level of work and hustle.

PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT. We will train you ourselves (frankly we have some of the industries' best talents in insurance). We will also encourage you to participate in structured training which will result in professional certifications and significant personal resume enhancement.

BENEFITS. We have the standard benefits you would expect of any major company. However, we also believe that your personal life is just as important as your professional life. We each take responsibility for balancing personal lives with delivering results. Within that context, we take the vacation days we want, we work where and when we want, we build our own teams AND everyone has the opportunity to become an owner.

Next step:

Please include a cover letter telling us a little about yourself, what you like to do for fun, how you can add to our team and culture and last but not least what your favorite animal is and why.
