Insurance Business Development Manager

📍 Based 1 days in our Lincoln office the other days remote.

Our mission:

  • One in five people in the UK rent their homes. Goodlord's mission? To provide them with the best renting experience in the world 🌎
  • We started Goodlord because we wanted to make renting simple and transparent for everyone involved: the agent, the landlord, and the tenant. We knew Generation Rent would lead to more tenants, with higher digital expectations and we were confident we could provide a solution 🏠
  • Like all scale-ups it’s been a bit of a rollercoaster journey, but we’re now stronger than ever, with around 3,000 letting agents using the platform, exciting and varied products and 350 Goodlordians supporting the mission! 💚

The Opportunity:

  • Working with current customers to analyse their current product use whilst looking for opportunities to support their overall proposition
  • Following an FCA-compliant sales process to promote the value of our product to new customers
  • Working with the wider insurance and customer success teams to identify further opportunities
  • A competitive environment where success is measured against sales performance, customer satisfaction and your ability to follow regulated processes

What we need from you:

  • Proven success in closing B2B sales both up-selling and cross-selling - this must be Insurance and/or Lettings focused
  • Ability to establish rapport and trust with customers quickly and efficiently over the phone (and in some cases, face-to-face)
  • Target driven mentality with the ability to stay motivated and resilient even under pressure
  • Comfortable working in a fast paced, autonomous environment.

What's in it for you:

  • 🚀 Grow with Goodlord: your development is important to us. Have a goal in mind? Share it with us and you can use your £1000 annual development fund to support it. We guarantee you’ll learn loads and develop both personally and professionally at Goodlord too!
  • 💕 Your well-being matters: bi-weekly coaching with Sanctus to provide Goodlordians with a safe place to talk and support your mental health
  • 🌴 Unlimited holiday and flexible time off (subject to passing probation & fair usage policies): we encourage Goodlordians to make use of their unlimited time off to enjoy the world, recharge, and reboot. We also offer time off for volunteering and training, so you can give back to the community and pursue your passions
  • 🤗 Supporting your family: we offer Goodlordians of all genders a generous 3 months of fully-paid time off to look after their new arrivals
