S&G expands in the north

Insurance claims solutions business S&G Response has expanded its footprint in the north of England by opening a new 4,000 sqft office in Halifax.

The new site created an initial 20 new jobs, with plans to increase to 50 over the course of the year

Anne Pass, head of HR, said: “We are initially looking to secure a further 30 new team members to join our motor claims department this summer. However, our business is growing rapidly, and we feel this will increase at a controlled pace towards the end of the year. We’re keen to attract local applicants from within a 10-mile radius, and the office is perfectly located close to the town centre and all public transportation, which is beneficial for locals and our company’s carbon footprint.”

Andy Whatmough, managing director, added: “This new office will increase our capability and scope, and by increasing our geographical footprint we can mitigate our business risk of operating in a sole location.”
