As one of the UK’s leading personal and business insurance brokers, we’re delighted to announce the expansion of our current team and the opening of a new office in Liverpool.
Following an on-going period of growth, County Insurance, which already has existing offices across in the North West and the Midlands, has opened an additional base in Liverpool to meet the ever increasing demand for our insurance products and to enhance the overall customer service. The new branch will be headed up by the locally based Phil Stafford (pictured fourth from left) who has been part of the senior management team at County Insurance for almost 8 years.
The new Liverpool office was officially opened by the Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson on Monday 8th December 2014.
This success has also lead us to take on around 20 additional employees over the last couple of months and we are now on the lookout for further 10 new starters with vacancies in areas such as new business, renewals, customer service and administration. The roles range from experienced Account Handlers through to internships and apprentices.
Kevin Catterall, Managing Director of County Insurance (pictured right from centre), described the hiring spree as the brokers largest to date.
He said: “Our ambitious growth plans mean that we’re always on the lookout for talented and ambitious people but this is new territory for us in terms of the number of jobs that have been created.”
“Since The County Group was established in 2003, it has experienced rapid growth and has also expanded across the country through a number of successful acquisitions. Not one of these roles is to directly replace somebody who has left the business – they are all brand new positions that will improve productivity, bring fresh skills and ideas to the table and enhance our ability to deliver a traditional broker service.”
“For me, creating new jobs is an extremely rewarding part of running a successful business, especially given the challenging economic climate that we’ve faced in the area over recent years.”
“The new Liverpool office is a tremendous and exciting opportunity to strengthen our high level of service to clients in the Merseyside area and to allow us to strategically expand. We already have a strong customer base throughout the North West and now is the right time to expand to the city area.”
