Insurance Sales Adviser Jobs

Insurance cover helps customers who have had losses caused by events such as fire, theft, accident or illness.

The customer pays a regular amount of money (called a premium) and receives a written policy. This sets out the conditions under which the insurance company will pay compensation.

As an Insurance Sales Adviser, you will sell insurance packages direct to the public. You usually work in a sales office or call centre and sell by telephone.

You will find out the client's insurance needs, explain policy terms and conditions and try to sell them a policy. You might also set up the collection of premium payments and deal with any queries.

You will only sell the products of the company or companies you work for. Financial Advisers must be registered by their companies with the Financial Conduct Authority.

To become an Insurance Sales Adviser, you will need:

  • an outgoing personality
  • good spoken and written communication skills
  • IT skills
  • to work well in a team

Duties and checklist in Insurance Sales Adviser Jobs

Insurance cover is available to help customers who have suffered losses caused by events such as theft, accident or illness. The customer pays a regular amount of money (called a premium) and receives a written policy. This sets out the conditions under which the insurance company will provide a settlement by way of repairs, replacement or reinstatement of items.

So, as an Insurance Sales Adviser, you will sell insurance packages directly to the public. You will operate as Direct Selling Representatives, Financial Advisers or, less and less often, Home Service Agents. You will sell only the products of the company or companies you work for.

You might sell general insurance products such as motor, travel, home or accident insurance. You will identify the client's insurance needs, explain policy terms and conditions and try to sell a policy.

You will then set up the collection of premium payments and deals with any queries.
Financial Advisers must be registered by their companies with the Financial Conduct Authority to sell life assurance or other financial packages, for example, long-term care insurance.

Direct Selling Representatives sell packages by telephone or post or, increasingly, through contact centre operations.

You might also act as a New Business or Agency Inspector, linking an insurance company with Brokers, Estate Agents and building societies that also promote and sell your policies.
