Seeking self-motivated, detailed-oriented person for a home based Administrative Sales Assistant position. This is a backup position for when my current staff members are out for various reasons, so it will not be year-round but we are looking for something on an ongoing, long-term basis. 4th quarter will be a busy time and more immediately, we will have some vacations coming in April. We want to fully train someone before that time.
This role will provide administrative support for my life insurance business. Duties include emailing and/or phoning applicants to follow-up on open items, working with insurance companies and underwriters to resolve problems and contacting medical offices and/or vendors to follow-up on medical records. Must be able to be by a computer throughout the day, as issues will often arise that need immediate attention. Research insurance leads, create insurance applications, verify/submit exam paperwork, process incoming mail, and assist with special projects as needed. This is an East Coast based position but you can be anywhere IN THE US ONLY, as long as you can work during our schedule.
Candidate must be able to meet via virtual meetings daily and be skilled using Microsoft office products to create memos, letters, spreadsheets, etc. Equipment needed include a phone with unlimited long distance, computer with high-speed Internet access, scanner, and printer. The anticipated hours are 4-20 hours per week but can vary based on caseload. Experience working from home and customer service by phone is a plus.
The ideal candidate will have experience in the following areas:
- Strong working knowledge of Microsoft Word, Excel, and Adobe PDF
- Experience in preparing emails and working under deadlines
- Strong organizational skills; focus on ACCURACY and consistency (this cannot be stressed enough)
- Experience in upholding and supporting confidentiality including client information and internal business operations/partners
- Ability to be flexible in setting priorities and responding to daily workloads
- Able to work independently with minimal detailed supervision
THIS POSITION REQUIRES VERY HIGH ATTENTION TO DETAIL - PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF THIS IS NOT YOU. The insurance business often has lots of moving parts, and any slight mistake has serious consequences in potential lost business.
The right candidate will receive the following rates paid to Upwork:
• $11.11 per hour for the first 6 weeks
• $17 per hour thereafter.
