OVERLAND PARK, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SelectQuote, Inc., a pioneer in providing consumers with unbiased price comparisons from some of the most trusted insurance carriers, announced today that it is opening 1,000 new insurance sales and support associate positions this year, with a majority coming in the Kansas City Metro area, as well as Jacksonville, Fla., California, Colorado and Iowa.
The new associates will support SelectQuote’s Senior, Life, and Auto & Home divisions by providing phone consultations for consumers to match their unique needs with the right product and carrier. The company is looking to fill positions to start as early as May 2020.
“During these uncertain times when many Kansas Citians may be faced with sudden loss of employment, we want them to know that SelectQuote is hiring and providing good jobs that offer competitive compensation, benefits and career growth,” said SelectQuote Head of Talent Acquisition and Management Anthony Fasl. “Our associates have a critical role to play in providing customers with fully informed, unbiased consultative services to alleviate the stress of shopping complex insurance plans. We are looking for people from a variety of backgrounds and are working with state authorities to ensure licensing of agents can continue given the COVID-19 closures.”
SelectQuote’s agents are fully-equipped to work from home and receive competitive compensation at an average of $80,000 per year. The company, which employs more than 1,500 people in the Kansas City area, hopes that the opening of new roles will help alleviate some financial pressure for those who may have been impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.
“We’re expanding our exceptionally talented force of agents to help us continue to deliver the best outcome to the consumer,” said SelectQuote CEO Tim Danker. “We truly value our team members and as people are evaluating their careers or may find themselves suddenly unemployed, we hope they’ll contact us. We offer highly-competitive compensation and benefits.”
