Salary up to £50,000 DOE + Car + Profit Share + Benefits

Hours: We’re flexible for the right person; full-time, part-time, job share etc

Our Purpose:

Here at Holiday Extras Cover we believe that time is precious and that holidays are some of the most precious times we have. We’re building the future of travel using innovative technology, a wide choice of products and unbeatable prices to create ‘less hassle’ for our customers so they can enjoy ‘more holiday’.

We make 200,000 travel insurance sales a year at Holiday Extras with our travel trade partners making up a large percentage of these. We believe there is still so much more opportunity in and outside of the travel trade to secure new exciting partnerships.

The Role:

You possess excellent relationship-building and strategic thinking skills, and you’ll work to identify new opportunities within the travel insurance market.

In this role, you’ll utilise your list of travel trade contacts to explore new and exciting partnerships to help us achieve our ambitious plans for growth. You’ll use your expert communication skills to develop and nurture long lasting, awesome relationships both internally and externally.

You’ll use your analytical skills to identify new opportunities and effectively influence and communicate with partners and stakeholders at all levels. As someone who enjoys being ‘one team’ you’ll work cross functionally with the New Business, Commercial Finance, Product and wider Insurance Teams to drive the transformation of our Insurance Business.

 

Responsibilities:

  • Management of the Insurance new business budget.
  • Manage a portfolio of partners through tender, acquisition and onboarding.
  • Nurturing a pool of warm leads and identifying potential new partners.
  • Creating attractive commercial proposals for the business and our partners analysing data to identify opportunities and support negotiations.
  • Attending various trade related conferences and events globally.

Skills and Experience:

  • Experience winning new business within the Leisure and Travel sector.
  • Travel Insurance Experience (Desired)

 

Benefits:

We pride ourselves on being ‘people pioneers’, providing HX’ers with fantastic environments in which to work and a world of competitive benefits including:

Pension, life assurance, private medical insurance and health screening (after 4 years’ service), enhanced parental leave, cycle-to-work schemes, gym memberships, onsite fitness classes, birthday day off etc.

After passing your onboarding and becoming a fully fledged HX’er, you’ll own a share of the company through our Employee Benefit Trust. As an added extra, you’ll also benefit from the success of the business; receiving a profit share bonus that is awarded as a percentage of salary. The more profit we make, the more bonus you receive!

And if that wasn’t enough, to help you maximise your time and manage your energy we have ‘Anytime +’ (our flexible working philosophy that says if you are contactable and connected it doesn’t matter where or when you work). And our ‘Wanderlust Collection’ encouraging our people to make the most of their time, offering 2 weeks a year to work remotely from anywhere in the world and rewarding long service with sabbaticals.

If that sounds like you, we’d like to see …
