Insurance Job Opportunities Rise in Canada in Spite of Challenging Economy

Combined Insurance reports job opportunities for commissioned insurance sales agents in Canada are on the rise

Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) December 11, 2008 -- Despite recent reports by Statistics Canada that unemployment is growing and consumer spending is declining, Combined Insurance, a leading provider of supplemental insurance, reports job opportunities for commissioned insurance sales agents in Canada are on the rise.

According to Sylvio Mercier, manager, national product development and continuing education at Combined Insurance Canada, "Our company's need to recruit and hire qualified self-employed sales representatives remains strong because in tough economic times consumers are in greater need of the supplemental insurance products we provide. Because of this trend, our company will continue to add sales representatives in 2009 to meet the growing need for Combined Insurance products and services, even in a slumping economic climate."

To increase accessibility to its supplemental insurance policies, which include accident, disability, health and life, Combined Insurance is planning to recruit up to 500 sales representatives throughout all the provinces of Canada in 2009. "A variety of skills and past experiences can be good preparation for selling supplemental insurance. Those who are 'people-oriented' are likely to be the most successful," said Mr. Mercier.

Mr. Mercier continued, "The people we recruit are both from within the insurance industry and outside of it, even recent graduates. The main thing we look for is people who are energetic, personable, self-disciplined, able to obtain a provincial insurance license and willing to learn about supplemental insurance and meet continuing education requirements. Another important criteria is that our independent contractors are motivated by the opportunity to work closely with their customers to help determine how supplemental insurance might best meet their individual needs."

The commission for a Combined Insurance independent contractor during the first year can range from up to $40,000 + with a greater opportunity through renewal commissions in subsequent years. In addition to self-driven earning potential, Combined Insurance offers introductory training as well as continued professional development and training.

Prospective independent contractors in all provinces of Canada who are interested in learning more about supplemental insurance can learn more on the company's website (, which is focused on making the benefits of supplemental insurance easy to understand.
