Available Positions

There are no positions available at this time.

However, when seeking potential employees, the following characteristics are looked for:

  • A team player who is also capable of independent work. The ability and desire to do all aspects of the job - from customer service and data entry to coordinating office projects - is essential. As a small company, all of our positions are hands-on and comprehensive.
  • Someone who will convey and come naturally by an enthusiastic, “can-do” attitude.  All staff members must actively contribute to a positive working atmosphere within the office and in the company’s relationships with its agents, brokers and other outside parties.
  • A highly organized and effective multi-tasker that is able to successfully coordinate and meet multiple projects and deadlines.
  • A person who is highly proficient in the use of computers, software and internet functions of any/all kinds. It will not be deemed sufficient that a candidate has achieved proficiency in a finite set of software applications (e.g., Microsoft Office). Instead, suitable candidates must have the ability to rapidly master any new software application, seek out and evaluate new applications for company use and assist others in learning, using and troubleshooting applications as well. A suitable candidate must be someone who will increase the level of technological savvy within our company, both upon hiring and into the future.
  • A person with the ability to learn rapidly and adapt easily to change. Suitable candidates must be willing to participate in extracurricular industry education and will be expected to continuously learn, develop and expand their knowledge base and skill set throughout their career with the company.
  • A person who is capable of making complex and subjective decisions with confidence. Suitable candidates will have an analytical mindset along with an astute and intuitive business sense.
  • A person who is highly effective at communicating: particularly written communication. The subject of involved correspondence will sometimes be the coverage terms of existing and prospective insurance policies, which are legal contracts.  As such, the ability to communicate with clarity, thoughtfulness and care is essential.

Minimum Requirements

  • Associates Degree or equivalent
  • Valid driver’s license
  • Ability to lift 40-50 lbs. and willingness to perform occasional physical tasks around the office, as in shoveling snow
