Commercial Account Handler

About the job

Who are Castlemead?

We are an independent commercial insurance broker who have been protecting our clients from catastrophe for over 30 years. We act as valued advisors to our clients to find the best cover at the best possible price.

We are not a Consolidator or a Corporate, nor are we pressured by external investors– we are able to do the best for our clients using the whole of the market.

What roles are available?

We are looking for a number of talented Account Managers to accelerate our growth. In a role at Castlemead, you will care for a portfolio of clients across a diverse range of industries including manufacturing, marine, haulage, aviation, property, and contractors.

Throughout the policy period, you will manage renewal negotiations and midterm reviews, problem solving alongside insurers to obtain quotations which meet your client’s insurance requirements, both in price and cover required.

Many of our clients have risks abroad, so an understanding of international structures, or a keenness to develop this understanding, would be beneficial.

What do I need to succeed?

Regardless of your experience, if you see eye to eye with our values, we can tailor a role for you, whether that be working with our Corporate, Commercial, or SME clients. Ideally, you will have a relevant insurance qualification, but if not, you will be determined to obtain one.

If you strive for excellence, love to problem solve, don’t shy away from difficult conversations yet remain personable and collegiate, and have a sound commercial understanding, then we would love to hear from you.

What will you get in return?

  • Performance Based Bonuses
  • 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays) with the ability to buy more.
  • Company sick pay, 50% subsidy on private medical insurance, & Long-Term Sickness Cover
  • Personal travel insurance (including family)
  • 6 x salary Death in Service
  • Onsite gym
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Support to complete your CII qualifications (if required)


Salary will be based on qualifications and experience, however, as a guide:

SME Account Manager: £25k – £30k.

Commercial Account Manager: £35 – £45k.

Corporate Account Manager: £45k+.

If you would like to know more, please do get in touch for a confidential conversation.

What Castlemead do for their Team

We believe in investing in our team. We train, pay for CII examinations, and give study leave to develop your career. Once qualified we offer other professional development courses and training.

Community Engagement

We believe that businesses have an important role to play in preserving and protecting the environment and engaging in positive ways with our local communities.

We actively encourage volunteering and fundraising days for the team, and we are excited about reaching our Net Zero targets.
