  • Overview

    THE POSITION

    You’ll work with a designated sales and service team to deliver the best service to our Benefit Planning clients. It’s your job to embody our stellar reputation as you work with clients, colleagues and carriers.

     

    This is an entry-level service position and PayneWest has created a promising career path with opportunities to move up the ladder and specialize in niche industries as you move forward.

     

    WHAT YOU’LL BE DOING

    Amazing client service: ensure client service needs are addressed in a timely fashion and effectively.

    Work on accounts:  including negotiating with carriers, preparing presentation and proposal materials, collecting client information and ordering policies from carriers.

    Update client information: keep accurate, up-to-date records on clients in our agency management system.

    Plus (the fine print): you’ll follow organization policies and procedures, service standards and established workflows. You’ll ensure quality control through proper file documentation and maintenance. You’ll maintain confidentiality and be an all-around awesome member of our team.

     

    THE PERSON WE’RE SEARCHING FOR:

    • You’re ready to throw all stereotypes of “insurance” out the window and love your job.
    • You’re smart. You understand business and people.
    • You’re good with people, even on the tough days—good client service is just part of who you are and you love making people happy.
    • Team oriented. You maintain positive relationships with your colleagues—and you enjoy it.
    • Leadership skills. You actually walk the walk. You lead by example.
    • You’re that person everyone can depend on—to pay attention to details, to make deadlines, to be accurate and complete when interacting with clients, colleagues and carriers.
    • You love to learn.
    • You can adapt—because our industry changes constantly and so do the needs of our clients. You’re good at staying on your toes.
    • You’re ready for a meaningful change. No more corporate vanilla structure for you.
    • You’re ready to embrace our core values: accountability, balance, excellence, integrity and respect.

     

    SKILLS

    • Bachelor’s Degree and/or equivalent business experience.
    • A track record of providing excellent customer service.
    • Eager to work in a collaborative and innovative environment.
    • Driven to be proactive and detail oriented.
    • Motivated to be a team player and help others.

     

    THE PERKS

    A competitive salary, a potential for profit sharing and a benefit package that includes paid paternity and family medical leave. We’re committed to a diverse workplace and a good work-life balance and offer a great career path with room for growth.
