An insurance and travel firm in Northampton is creating 120 new jobs across its business.

Roles at the company, listed as one of the ‘1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ by the London Stock Exchange, include sales agents, customer service agents and team managers across Staysure’s travel insurance and car insurance divisions in Coventry, as well as roles within its head office in Northampton in business areas including HR, partnerships management, website development and sales team management.

Launched in 2005, Staysure provides a range of specialist insurance products for the growing number of over 50s within the UK, including comprehensive travel insurance for those with pre-existing medical conditions as well as car, home and holiday home insurance.

Samantha Turnbull, head of talent resourcing and development, said: “A significant part of our success story is our people.

“In 2015 we initiated our Colleague Engagement Programme, which set out to allow people to have a greater involvement in how we improve the business and culture going forward. We have candidates completing degree courses in Leadership and Finance and training qualifications through our Professional Development Scheme.

“We are also embarking on a significant Leadership Programme across the business, which all our Strategic and Operational Managers will be attending.”

Staysure CEO, Chris Rolland, said: “Across our three UK sites, we employ almost 500 staff dedicated to the over 50s market. The quality of the service we provide is directly tied to employing, training and retaining great people – our investment in this is evident from our customer satisfaction rates, which have increased by 100% in the past six months.

“We’ve been recognised as the biggest travel insurance provider in the UK; our policies pay out well over £1m in claims every month globally, supporting customers from Albania to Zambia – it truly is an exciting time to join the business.”
