This individual will live and breathe our core values by contributing to a vital resource that supports PayneWest’s clients and colleagues.


At PayneWest, we will give you access to mentorship, training, resources, and development to ensure your success but you will need to supply the ambition. Our colleagues don’t stop short of excellence and are driven to do what is best for their clients and fellow colleagues. 

What You'll Be Doing

  • Develop and help clients implement training programs for safety and compliance and assist clients with OSHA’s informal conference for penalties.
  • Acquire and maintain a working knowledge of OSHA (and other regulatory agencies, where appropriate) mandated programs and required documentation.
  • Serve as a liaison between carriers and clients to ensure a clear understanding of risk control and risk management issues.
  • Partner with key stakeholders to lead meetings and/or special projects and be a resource for training and new business initiatives.

  • Share your knowledge and expertise with others through educational offerings in your area(s) of expertise. 
  • Actively participate in organizational initiatives and support core values; including but not limited to driving and promoting community involvement of others.

Plus, we strongly prefer that you have experience in one or both of our two largest specialty practices; Construction and Agribusiness. Ideally, we would also prefer that you hold, or have the ability to obtain, applicable state insurance licensure.
    • You love to learn. You’re earnest about filling in any gaps in knowledge through professional development. You either hold an industry designation (Certified Safety Professional, Associate Safety Professional, etc.) or show a strong willingness to attain one.
    • You’re an exceptional communicator. You are able to collaborate with key stakeholders at all levels. You have an innate ability to present concepts both visually and verbally.
