Sales

Our sales model consists of an intermediated as well as a direct model.

In the intermediated model our Broker Services unit works alongside brokers, portfolio administrators and managers to drive the support and service to identify opportunities and drive sales targets. The supporting roles in our intermediated model are Key Account Managers, Relationship Managers (commonly known as Broker Consultants in the insurance industry), Regional Managers and Service Consultants.

Our Contact Centres provide operational services and support in either personal or commercial lines to the intermediary channels and the key internal roles.

In the Direct model Santam interacts directly with the customer through our Sales and Service Consultants.

Underwriting

A key performance driver for us as an insurer operating in the current and future business environment is superior underwriting and risk assessment. In underwriting we manage risks on behalf of policyholders who have chosen to insure their personal or commercial assets with us. Join our highly experienced team of underwriters who ensure that we maintain our competitive edge as a key general insurer in the market.

Claims

Boasting with an exceptionally high pay-out ratio, we look for reasons to pay our customer’s claims rather than reasons not to. Our claims business is the key internal enabler, ensuring an effective and efficient claims process and experience. We offer diverse employment opportunities in our claims environment with one of them being Claims Assessors. If you are interested in a Claims Assessor role or any other career opportunity in claims, search our available jobs or register your candidate profile; enable the job alert functionality which will automatically keep you informed of available claims career opportunities.

We live in interesting times. When things go wrong, wouldn't you want to be with the employer that makes it right?
