insureTAXI expand team and open new Liverpool office
November 19, 2014
insureTAXI are one of the UK’s leading taxi insurance brokers, we are part of The County Group and have recently announced the expansion of our current team and the opening of a new office in Liverpool.
Following an on-going period of growth, insureTAXI, which already has existing offices in Crewe and Southport, 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 who has been part of the senior management team at insureTAXI for almost 8 years.
We provide a complete spectrum of taxi insurance policies for both private and public hire drivers and have also taken on around 20 additional employees over the last couple of months. 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 ( pictured above), Managing Director of County Insurance incorporating insureTAXI, 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.”
