We have a great opportunity to turbocharge our business with some of our smaller community brokers from around the UK. This represents one of UKI’s biggest profitable growth opportunities in 2019 and beyond.

Your working week will include:
* Working with 5 sales managers within the south UK, seeking opportunities to grow across all of our business areas.
* Leading the team to success by coaching and training, as well as joint meetings and using a consultative approach to find great solutions.
* Collaborating with senior colleagues to develop best practice, share ideas, develop new solutions and support growth across the wider team.
* Building and maintaining a clear contact strategy within the team that incorporates all relevant parts of the Aviva business and covers all levels of the broker hierarchy to maximise joint opportunities
* Responsible for growth and profit performance across the panel and finding solutions to outlier performance, working closely with business areas across Aviva.
* Proactively managing any broker conduct issues and making sure debt is managed well.
