Run your own business together with an established partner

This is a unique proposition, offering you the exciting prospect of becoming a co-owner of a well-established and successful business, with a mature customer book…and playing an instrumental role in its future growth, without providing any financial investment.


As a growing and award-winning provider of general insurance and financial services, the success of NFU Mutual is built on a network of over 300 local agency offices. Our Dorchester agency is just one example – a thriving business, with a successful and experienced senior partner already in place, which enjoys a great local reputation amongst its mainly agricultural customer base and is now primed for further expansion in the commercial market.


This is more than simply a job, it’s a lifestyle choice, offering you the opportunity to map out your own future. Operating on a self-employed basis and working in support of the existing senior partner, you’ll have a shared responsibility for managing the team and growing the business, whilst also acting as the representative for the NFU Members in your area - which will only enhance your visibility and credibility in the local community.

Benefiting from the backing and support only a big brand can give, with a brief to develop and execute a successful sales strategy, you’ll focus on promoting our Commercial Business offering and Bespoke Insurance product portfolio, which has been specifically designed to drive growth and protect the needs of high-net-worth clients.


First and foremost, we’re looking for a proven sales leader and business developer, with strong relationship skills and a genuine passion for customer service, who has a successful track record in achieving and exceeding sales targets. Someone who is credible and confident in front of any audience, with the ability to manage themselves, their team and the business, growing revenues and profit along the way. Don’t worry if you’re not from a related industry or sector, because if you can show us your worth, then we’ll do everything we can to ensure you fulfil your potential. If you also have a general interest in farming then even better – but if not, don’t let it deter you from applying.


Rest assured, we’ll give you all the tools you need to succeed, whether that’s access to expert support and specialist advice or just high-quality product and systems training. More importantly, you’ll have an experienced partner and team by your side, sharing their knowledge of the business, the area and the people, enabling you to quickly find your feet and help ensure the business continues to flourish, allowing you to start earning from day one.


Estimated on target earnings for the first year (based on the current renewal income of the agency) are up to £45,000 and thereafter it will be up to you, with no limit to your future earnings potential, which will only be governed by your drive, vision and personal ambition. But equally, the lifestyle and the freedom that goes with being your own boss and running your own business should not be underestimated.

If this exciting opportunity appeals to you and you’re wanting to find out more about becoming an Associate Partner within NFU Mutual’s agency network, then we’d love to talk. Simply send us your details by clicking on the apply button and we’ll be in touch.
