In the labyrinth of recruitment, Managing Partners in the insurance sector often find themselves facing a familiar set of hurdles. Picture this: you’re on the hunt for RIBO licensed producers to bolster your team, only to encounter a myriad of challenges along the way. From unlicensed applicants to candidates residing far from your geographical scope, and the classic case of individuals unaware of the commission-based nature of the role – these stumbling blocks can make the hiring process feel like navigating through a maze.

So, how can you address this challenge? Here’s a comprehensive guide outlining steps to attract top RIBO-licensed talent.


Crafting the Perfect Job Description for RIBO Licensed Brokers

In the job description, prioritize the first line to highlight essential qualifications and requirements that would attract suitable candidates. Emphasize key elements such as licenses, experience, skills, and qualifications. For instance, begin with: ‘At (company), we are seeking a RIBO licensed broker with a minimum of 2 years of experience to join our team’. This approach will discourage applicants who do not meet these criteria from applying.

In the second paragraph of the job description, offer a concise overview of your company, emphasizing important aspects such as company culture, mission, and values. This enables candidates to grasp the unique qualities of your organization and why they should contemplate becoming a part of your team. Keep it short (1 paragraph long should be enough).

After providing an overview of your company and before jumping into the requirements, dedicate a section to highlight the benefits and perks of working at your organization. Since many positions in this field are 100% commission-based, emphasize non-monetary benefits such as unlimited earning potential, professional development opportunities, and a supportive work environment to attract potential candidates.

In the next section of your job description, clearly list the requirements and qualifications necessary for the role, emphasizing again the importance of RIBO licensing, sales experience, and other relevant skills. Be specific yet concise to attract qualified candidates. If possible, divide them into ‘must-haves” and ‘nice-to-haves’ and make sure you use bullets for easier reading.

Next, list the job responsibilities also using bullet points. Try to make it short, otherwise, candidates might think that your company micromanages its employees.

Finally, make sure you include the salary range for the position. In Ontario this is mandatory.
