HOW THE ROLE DEVELOPS
LIFE AS AN ACS BROKER FAQs
WHAT IS MY CAREER PROGRESSION LIKE?
Everyone starts as a Trainee Broker but we have a 9 step career plan which allows brokers to progress all the way to Director level. Progression is based on financial and flight performance as well as assessing performance in line with ACS standards.
WILL I BE MAKING OUTBOUND SALES CALLS?
We do measure our Brokers on call times, especially when they are building a list and establishing client relationships as we know there is a correlation between phone times with clients and operators, and financial performance. Our very best Brokers, from the start of their careers with ACS very much saw our minimum call time expectations as exactly that, the minimum and have always exceeded them!
ARE THERE ANY OTHER KPI’S?
We like our Brokers to visit their clients as we know how effective face to face meetings are in establishing long term relationships. Once you have qualified to sell, you will also be measured on your sales visits.
WHAT WILL MY HOURS BE LIKE?
The truth is that the hours can be long and often require you to work unsociable hours, especially when you are starting off in your career. However as you build your client base and your knowledge of the sector improves this does become easier.
AM I EXPECTED TO BE ON CALL OUTSIDE OF WORKING HOURS?
We do have a rota system which you will be expected to be a part of. This simply means you take your company issued cell phone home with you to answer any incoming calls.
WHEN WOULD I START TO MAKE COMMISSION?
You are eligible to earn commission once you have completed your Broker Test which takes place at the end of your training period, this differs per division and can be anywhere from 6- 10 months.
WHAT IS THE BROKER TEST?
We invest heavily in ensuring you have the skills, training and experience to enable you to have a successful and financially rewarding career with us. To ensure you have collated the knowledge and expertise required to call our client base you will undertake an online Broker test. This will consist of a variety of questions the answers to which you will have covered during your training period. The questions are not there to trick you, they are there to ensure you have retained the knowledge required to enable you to effectively sell. If you fail the Broker test, which is a rarity, you are given the opportunity to retake.
