If you’ve been searching for a new career with a team that values you and the talent you bring to the organization, look no further.

This role would be an ideal fit for you if you enjoy being on the go, staying busy, meeting new people, and managing your own schedule and sales activities day-to-day.

Your primary responsibility will be to set meetings with business owners or benefits managers in your territory with the goal of presenting some of the best supplemental insurance plans in the industry to them and their employees. Sales presentations are typically either one-on-one presentations with individual employees or group presentations with multiple employees, depending on the business. Your immediate goal is acquiring new sales and new clients, and eventual over time as your book of business grows, your daily and weekly routine will shift more and more to reservicing of your existing business clients and following up on referrals from your current client base.

  • Respond to general emails and phone calls from clients

  • Set follow-up appointments with prospective and current clients to review their needs

  • Be present on scheduled calls or meetings with your sales team or manager

  • Develop relationships with local business owners in your territory

  • Set your own scheduled working hours and submit them to your sales manager each week

  • Follow up on provided sales leads and cold-call on businesses in person, balancing “cold” lead generation and sales with your warm leads and appointments with existing clients

  • Submit your sales metrics and activity daily

We Offer:

  • Virtual classroom training as well as hands-on sales training in your own territory

  • Weekly pay with bonuses and commission eligibility upon start

  • Major medical benefits available after first 90 days
