One of Northampton’s largest employers, small business insurance provider Simply Business, is continuing its shake up of the UK insurance market by today announcing the launch of a wide-scale recruitment initiative dedicated to creating 100 new roles. The main recruitment drive will be taking place in the company’s Northampton office over the next two years.
This regional expansion follows its recent £250k investment in improving its Northampton office, from technology to training facilities. Simply Business will continue to recruit talent with an appetite for award-wining customer service and a vibrant and dynamic workplace culture.
Keen to attract ambitious graduates and professionals who may not have previously considered a career in insurance, the new roles will offer candidates a variety of opportunities across Simply Business’s Customer Response and Solutions team, including qualified positions and management roles.
Simply Business has been featured in the Tech Track 100 Fastest Growing Companies for the last four years, and was recently listed in the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 EMEA. The company’s vision is to challenge the status quo of the traditional insurance landscape, innovating and modernising a largely outdated sector to improve customer experiences and value for money. Applicants for the new Northampton roles now have the opportunity to join the UK’s largest and fastest growing online commercial insurance broker.
David Summers, Director of Operations, Northampton comments:
“We are extremely pleased and proud to be a part of the Northampton business community and to be recruiting from the great pool of talent that exists. It’s an exciting time to join Simply Business as the company continues to grow and improve its market leadership position.”
Mandy Clayton, Head of Customer Service, Northampton adds:
“Our vision is built on innovation and collaboration and we pride ourselves on a workplace culture that is unique within the insurance industry. This passion is reflected in our personalised approach to both individuals and our customers. We want to provide the kind of service we would expect as consumers and set our standards high, constantly engaging customers, listening and improving. We will continue focusing on how we can help cultivate our staff through tailored development and training programmes, such as our dedicated ‘Simply Business Academy’, ensuring clear career progression and maximising our peoples’ potential.”
