OPPORTUNITIES TO GROW
Are you looking to grow within a business? Are the opportunities limited where you are currently? Is there a lack of variety in the leads you receive? Are you fed up working unsociable shift patterns? Do you feel taken for granted, and unappreciated where you are now? Or are you just one fish in a very big pond? Fancy a ‘real’ challenge and want to be seen and rewarded for the results you deliver? Then you really need to find out more about working with Assist Insurance Services.
What we offer:
- Base Salary: You will be offered an excellent market leading base salary based on your experience. We pay the best, because we want to attract the best.
- Bonus Potential: Once you are trained you will be placed on a bonus scheme which truly is unlimited, where your earning potential is limited by you, and not the company. We have advisers who can earn monthly four figure bonuses (on top of their base salary);
- Holiday Entitlement: You will receive 20 days paid holiday, which will increase by 1 day for every year you work for us up to 25 days. You will also get your Birthday off which doesn’t come out of your holiday entitlement!
- Opportunities for Progression: We have a policy of promoting from within whenever possible, if you are looking for a company where you can progress, then we are the company for you. If you don’t want the responsibility of man-management, that isn’t a problem, as you can still progress by being more multi-skilled;
- Professional Career: We would be happy to sponsor you should you wish to study towards your insurance exams;
- Fun Environment: We all understand that Insurance isn’t the most exciting of industries, but we do our best to enjoy ourselves whilst we are at work. Whether that is the internal competitions, where alcohol, chocolate or major prizes such as iPads and more, or whether it is joining the company for a meal in town, we like to have fun!
- Family Business: Assist is a family-owned business, not a corporate dinosaur, where you don’t meet the Directors or the guests we have come into the company. Despite being a family business, we employ 40 plus people, many of them having worked with us for a number of years. And those who do leave… often come back. What does that tell you?
