If you’re ready to turn your ambition into a fulfilling career, look no further. Here at NFU Mutual, we’re passionate about developing individuals who can help shape our future. That’s why if you join our Sales & Business Management Graduate Scheme, you’ll be empowered and supported to own and grow your career in the direction you choose. Maybe you see yourself as an entrepreneur or you’d like to run your own business one day. On our Sales & Business Management Scheme you’ll gain first-hand experience of how our branch network operates and the role that our regional sales teams play in driving our business forward.
What does the Scheme offer?
With nationwide opportunities, you’ll get involved from day one on real work and make a real impact. In your first year we will support you in learning everything there is to know about our products. This means you will be well equipped to develop customer relationships and meet their insurance needs. You will also shadow our regional sales teams in driving sales performance, learning how our branch network grow their businesses. You will work with the team who ensure we provide the best possible customer service, upholding sales integrity and helping NFU Mutual achieve numerous industry awards.
Our recent Graduates have been able to drive sales performance from the start, working on sales campaigns, national and local agricultural shows, completing placements within branches, providing insight into prospecting and supporting branches to use new technology.
At the end of your scheme you will be in a position to consider running your own branch or working in a regional sales role, supporting a panel of branches.
What do you need to apply?
Alongside a good degree, in any subject, you’ll have an enthusiastic, positive nature and a proactive attitude – that’s really important. You’ll be keen to learn, willing to get stuck in to every challenge and take on each opportunity that comes your way. You’ll be great with people, ready to collaborate across different teams and build strong working relationships at every level. You don’t need sales experience, but if you’re the tenacious type, who can help to develop long-lasting relationships with our customers then we’d love to hear from you.
What’s in it for you?
We firmly believe that being actively involved in projects, and shadowing others, helps you to learn and develop faster. We’ll give you everything you need to shape your career and you’ll be supported every step of the way, with a dedicated coach and mentor on hand to guide you. You will be supported by a comprehensive personal development programme where you learn with the whole graduate population. Your professional development is important to us too, so we’ll help you work towards your ACII (Advanced Certificate in Insurance).
As well as a generous salary, you’ll also benefit from a company car, contributory pension scheme, company performance related bonus and 25 days’ holiday.
