Chances of promotion with AXA

At AXA every employee has the opportunity to develop their skills – and that includes the sales force. That's because our career model encompasses both management and specialist careers.

At many insurance companies, a job in the sales force offers no prospects of a career progression. At AXA this is different. Here, everyone has the opportunity to progress their career.

These are the career steps available in the sales force:

  • Insurance or pension advisor
    You develop your specialist skills within a flexible system. As well as promotion to sales manager, agent or general agent, a move into distribution management at AXA is also possible.
  • Sales manager
    Alongside your activity as a customer advisor, you gather management experience. You look after a team of 5 - 10 advisors, induct new staff, and support them in their career progression.
  • Agent
    You lead your own agency independently with a team of 5 - 10 insurance advisors. You manage your own customer portfolio, organize the work of the agency, and are responsible for its financial success.
  • General agent
    You are an entrepreneur and bear the responsibility for the profitability and growth of your general agency. Alongside approx. 30 internal and sales force employees of your general agency, you are head of 5 - 10 agencies in your sales region. You also manage your own small portfolio of important customers. You recruit new employees and support them in their professional development.
