Full Time Permanent
Sydney (CBD)
Sales & Business Development, Customer Service, Administration & Support

Are you someone who has claims or sales and service experience in general insurance or broking?

Are you motivated by providing great customer experience and supporting your colleagues as we continue to grow our business?

Do you want the flexibility of hybrid working and the opportunity to learn from experienced and supportive colleagues? If your answer is “Yes!” to all of that, we would love to hear from you.

Have the stability in a permanent role while we support and develop you to keep growing your career in insurance.

Your new company

Guild Insurance is Australia’s leading provider of insurance solutions for allied healthcare professionals. For more than 50 years, we’ve been providing exceptional products and services and unparalleled customer experiences, driven by a genuine care for our clients’ professional and financial wellbeing. At the heart of what we do is being there for those our communities rely on.

Winner of the Small General Insurance Company of the Year at ANZIIF’s 2021 Australian Insurance Industry Awards and nominated for the Insurance Learning Program of the Year, we’re proud to be recognised amongst some of Australia’s biggest and best insurers.

Our comprehensive product suite includes business insurance, professional indemnity, public liability, and workers compensation. We are Australian owned with offices nationally, so our customers benefit from our local knowledge and presence. 

About you

As an Account Coordinator for our NSW Team, we look to you for critical support to our Account Managers, helping grow the business and providing our clients with excellent customer experiences. To this end, you are well-organised and can juggle and prioritise your work effectively.

You have the customer front of mind and are comfortable communicating with them whether by phone or email. You might have gained this experience working in previous customer-facing roles where you also demonstrated an ability to get across new systems quickly in a fast-paced environment.

You've had a similar sales and service-related role or a claims consultant role within the insurance industry and would bring with you your knowledge of personal lines products (such as home and contents). You could be a broking assistant wanting to broaden your insurance career and ready to take the next step.

You’re proactive in seeking opportunities where you can support your team and will come with a positive, can-do attitude. With your thirst for knowledge, you’re ready to learn from experienced and supportive team members. Proficient with using technology, you can work independently but are also proactive in reaching out to your colleagues if you need assistance or if you see opportunities to improve our processes.

It would be useful to already have some knowledge of commercial insurance products and workers compensation though we would be happy and willing to train and develop you on this.

Ideally you will have your RG146 Tier 2 (General Insurance - General and Personal Advice) qualification, however we can provide this training for you.

If you were in this role, here’s what you might have done last week

  • You’re fielding queries from clients about our products and their policies. You’re confidently answering these queries yourself, taking the opportunity to educate them on our specific commercial insurance classes, benefits, and premiums; or you might be escalating queries to the Account Managers.
  • You are also responsible for accurately processing and updating our clients’ details through our policy management system (PolicyCenter).
  • With your well-developed understanding of our underwriting guidelines, you’ve worked with our Account Managers to review and identify our clients’ commercial insurance requirements. You might have also recommended actions to resolve underwriting blocks for both new and existing business.
  • You’ve helped the Account Managers prepare for renewals by updating and processing templates, preparing for client appointments, coordinating these appointments on their behalf, and completing any necessary post-appointment tasks.

Why us?

We pride ourselves on having an inclusive and productive workplace where we treat our people and our clients with fairness, dignity, and respect.

We offer: 

  • Paid parental leave for eligible staff from 6 weeks
  • An extra day of paid leave in addition to your annual leave entitlements
  • Enhanced long service leave
  • Staff discounts with leading retailers
  • An innovative Employee Assistance Program that provides counselling and support to all staff members and their immediate family
  • Wellbeing initiatives such as health checks and skin checks
  • Hybrid working (we call this #Connect which reflects how we work remotely + in office and = flexibility)
