St Neots based insurer Lifesure is celebrating a successful 2019 following a series of new hires, growth and healthy profits.
With the UK’s continuing and growing love for caravanning and motorhome holidays shown by a 12 % increase in touring holidays (2016-2017,) and a significant proportion of the population choosing to live in park homes, the specialist insurer has seen significant growth in demand for its leisure and everyday insurance products, leading to the need for new hires.
With a workforce of 61 employees at the beginning of 2019, the team has now grown to 77 thanks to recruitment of experienced and talented people from the surrounding area. The business has also recruited for 10 roles in its Finance and Operations teams to keep up with the increased sales activity.
Nick Long, Commercial Director at Lifesure says, “Our approach at Lifesure is to treat every customer or potential customer with honesty and integrity, while trying to find them the best deal and we genuinely believe this has helped us to grow. Our Feefo reviews say it all for us; our people make our customers happy and recommendations are a really strong enquiry generator. Our staff are second to none and it’s thanks to the quality of their work that we’ve had such a successful year.”
Nick goes on to say, “We are expecting 2020 to be another busy year with more people than ever looking at motorhome and caravan ownership as their preferred way to enjoy their time off. And, of course, they have other insurance needs too, so our specially designed range of everyday insurances, like home and car, are there to make their insurance purchasing as simple as possible.
By arming ourselves with a strong and multi-skilled team we are able to service all of our customers’ needs under the one roof and help make life a little easier for them. It’s all part of our commitment to caring for our customers.”
