Run your own business together with an established partner

This is a unique proposition, offering you the exciting prospect of becoming a co-owner and the leading partner in an already successful business…playing an instrumental role in its future and direction, without providing any financial investment.


As an 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. Here in Devon, our Barnstaple agency, is just one example - a thriving and scalable business, with an experienced team in place, which has a great local reputation and real potential to grow into a much larger operation, with the capacity to take advantage of increasing opportunities and ultimately enjoy greater commercial success.


Operating on a self-employed basis, you’ll work closely with the existing assistant partner, taking responsibility for managing the team and building on a ready-made client base, whilst also acting as the representative for the NFU Members in your area - which will only enhance your visibility in the local farming community. Benefiting from the support only a big brand can give and enjoying a hands-on leadership role, your priority will be to successfully drive operational and strategic change, ensuring we maintain our current membership/customer base and at the same time embark on an ambitious growth plan.


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 leading teams to achieve and exceed sales targets. Someone who is capable of developing a clear strategic plan and can manage themselves, their team and the business, growing revenues and profit along the way. Ideally, you’ll also have a strong network and good connections in the local farming and agricultural sector, although we’re happy to consider proven performers from all fields. And if you’re able to combine this with some knowledge of insurance or financial services then even better.


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 business partner and experienced team to support you, 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 under your stewardship.


Estimated on target earnings for the first year (based on the current renewal income of the agency) are up to £80,000 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.
