Things to consider

There would be commission payable of 10% on our first year’s earnings for any successfully booked appointment that converts to an actual client. These commission payments per sale could be between £100 to £500+ for the candidate dependent on the annual insurance premium spend of the client secured. The bonuses would be payable monthly in arrears.

Initial interviews would be conducted by zoom or teams with second interviews face to face in the office.

There would be an element of office (currently two days) and home working whilst we remain under the current guidance, and this will be subject to change so flexibility and the ability to work from home is a necessity.

Salary £12,000 to £27,000 per annum. This will depend on the level of any previous experience outbound dialling.
