    Forget about boring, traditional paint-by-numbers insurance sales. Ready for a more challenging, bigger canvas? Join a creative organization where you’ll connect with some of the most entrepreneurial, spirited, energetic people you’ll ever meet in your life.


    We’re looking for a Regional sales manager with insurance business savvy and charismatic gusto to play an integral role with the Great-West Life Product Solutions team.  In this fast-paced, results-driven environment, it’s go time for you as you deliver product expertise, creative sales ideas and industry insight. You’ll expand and multiply the acquisition of new life insurance, disability and critical illness business by working with a short list of top advisors across our Advisory Network, including the Wealth and Insurance Solutions Enterprise and our affiliated partnerships with managing general agencies, and National Accounts - some of the finest in the business. Our product shelf is robust, dependable and effective and we’re looking to you to show case to advisors the power behind Great-West Life, London Life and Canada Life solutions.


    To start:

    • Your experience is rock solid, with 7-10 years in sales or wholesaling. But you’re not content to carry the bag anymore. And you’re not satisfied with good — you insist on leading the way. As lead support and relationship manager, you’ll join a proprietary insurance team that commands industry respect, defines success by growth and is generously rewarded with compensation and benefits.
    • You’re an authority on life insurance, disability and critical illness products, sales strategies, the financial services industry and applicable legislation. You understand tax and estate planning related to life and living benefits as if you wrote the book.
    • With your credibility and expertise (CFP, CH.F.C., PFP and/or CLU), you’re ready to lead, inspire and set the agenda. You’ve got a team eager for a motivational leader, and you’ll be supported with proven processes, product solutions, strategies and technical support.


    Where you’ll really shine:

    You’re creative and disciplined. You recognize you’re on your own — there’s no activity if you don’t self-generate.


    Your base is Vancouver but your real office is wherever your advisors need you—Vancouver and everything in between. Your day runs the gamut from researching trends and business growth to sharing actionable ideas. You transition seamlessly from your desktop to your iPad, iPhone and face-to-face. Your territory is wide, and you welcome the road.


    You thrive because you get personal satisfaction that comes from helping others succeed. Your mentoring nature is part of your DNA, and you appreciate the key role you play in helping Canadians reach their goals and dreams.  


    If you believe you’ve got what it takes, and want to make a difference, we want to hear from you.

    • General understanding of tax and estate planning principles related to life insurance and living benefit solutions
    • Hold valid financial services designations, such as CFP, CH.F.C, PFP or CLU
