Account Representatives Needed

Our growing, family-owned insurance agency in Schenectady, New York has two immediate openings for experienced Insurance Account Representatives to join our team.

The ideal candidate will have experience in processing and renewing insurance policies and endorsements, and rating and quoting of new and renewal business. Strong time management, attention to detail and excellent customer service skills are necessary. A current NYS P&C license is preferred; however, if you do not have one, we will help you to acquire it, if hired. Experience with agency management systems a plus.

In addition, there is a 401K plan with company-match, generous PTO policy and company-paid continuing education and tuition assistance.
