Direct Life is a leading life insurance outsource and technology supplier, based in the centre of Chichester, opposite New Look in East Street. We provide systems and services for financial advisers across the UK, enabling them to sell life insurance and similar products to their clients. It sounds dull, but it’s not – we promise!

The preferred working pattern is:

  • 37.5 hours per week
  • Monday to Friday 9 am to 5.30 pm
  • However, some variation on this working pattern would be considered.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Previous experience in the financial services (desirable, although not essential)
  • Proven experience in a sales/customer service role
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills
  • Outstanding negotiating skills, with the ability to persuade and resolve issues
  • Ability to learn about the Company’s products and services, and describe and explain them.

If you have answered yes to all the above, we would love to hear from you!

Our benefits:

  • Generous holiday entitlement (including all the bank holidays)
