Yeovil, Somerset

1st year estimated earnings £40K

How well do you know the local Agricultural & Farming community?

If you have first-hand knowledge of the local scene and a good understanding of the interests and the challenges this specific sector face, then it’s time to read on! Because, this is a unique proposition, offering you the exciting prospect of becoming a co-owner of an already successful business and playing an instrumental role in its future, without providing any financial investment.


As an award-winning provider of general insurance and financial services, with strong farming roots, the success of NFU Mutual is built on a network of over 300 local agency offices. Our Yeovil agency is just one example - a thriving business, still committed to the rural community we’ve grown from, with a great local reputation and an established customer base, that’s primed for further expansion.


Operating on a self-employed basis and enjoying shared responsibility with the current partner for managing the team and growing the existing business in what’s predominately an agricultural area, you’ll be able to build on a ready-made client base, whilst benefiting from the support only a big brand can give. Enjoying a hands-on role, that involves of mix of new business and ‘existing book’, you will be working with a loyal base of rural businesses and farming members, whilst benefiting from a highly supportive NFU presence – which when combined, will offer plenty of opportunity to deliver real growth in both farming and commercial sectors.


First and foremost, we’re looking for a real people person, ideally with strong connections/networks in the local farming and agricultural community, who has a genuine passion for customer service. A proven leader and business developer, who can spot and convert a sales opportunity. Someone who can lead from the front and is capable of managing themselves, their team and the business, growing revenues and profit along the way. If you also have any experience of farming insurance and/or a broker background then even better – but either way, don’t let it stop 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 a partner to act as a mentor, 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.


Estimated on target earnings for the first year (based on the current renewal income of the agency) are £40,000 and thereafter it will be up to you, with no limit to your future earnings potential, which will 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.
