Insurance Sales Consultant

If you are an experienced insurance sales professional and serious about making money you may be just the person we are looking for.

Buttress Insurance Brokers is building up a sales team in Lusaka.

You need to be a special kind of person to be successful in your application:

  • First, you need to be hungry for money, lots of it, because we will pay you a fixed monthly allowance to make ends meet, and then top it up with monthly commissions on all your sales. How much money you make, is really then up to you.
  • Second, you have to be serious about sales. Well, this actually goes without saying when achievement of sales targets is part of the job. Professional sales people take their jobs seriously. From building up a client base to maintaining and retaining those clients, this is serious stuff every step of the way.
  • Third, your networking abilities will come in very handy.
  • If you are able to couple this with 3 years’ sales experience in insurance products, you are probably hands down a winner.

There are also some specific minimum requirements that you have to meet to be considered:

  • You have to have a valid driver’s license.
  • You must have a valid Grade 12 Certificate and you must NOT have a criminal record (no-brainer).

If you have what it takes and are up for the challenge, we would like to hear from you.

Send us your CV and cover letter to [email protected] today. If you do not hear back from us within 2 weeks, you can stop wondering, and consider your application unsuccessful. But if you meet these criteria and seem suitable for the job, we will contact you with an invitation for an interview. Please ensure that you mention as the source of this job advertisement.

The actual sale involves negotiating a commercial agreement to the benefit of both the customer and supplier.

Technical support, which follows the sale, may include solving faults and problems, or maximising the use of software features, as well as advising on appropriate user training.


The role requires significant interaction with clients, which may be face-to-face or over the telephone. Tasks are varied and include:

  • understanding customers’ diverse, specific business needs and applying product knowledge to meet those needs
  • ensuring quality of service by developing a thorough and detailed knowledge of technical specifications and other features of employers’ systems and processes and then documenting them
  • cold-calling in order to create interest in products and services, generate new business leads and arrange meetings
