The Position

The Sales Support Representative (SSR) provides a crucial service to our stakeholders. The SSR is an individual who is skilled at efficiently running illustrations. They are quick to respond to incoming requests for anything from a term spreadsheet to Comdex comparisons, to a policy specimen page to a flyer about a rider on a policy. SSRs are very reactive and known to arm our SVPs, Internal Sales Consultants (ISC), Case Designers (CD) or producers directly, with information to help drive sales. Individuals in this position will encounter a high volume workload that requires an energetic and positive attitude. SSRs are often interested in exploring opportunities into Sales, Case Design or Underwriting.
