Following an incredible 2016 SJL Insurance Services are proud to post substantial growth figures for the 15th consecutive year.
As well as increasing our annual premium income by over 16% (from £14.2m to £16.5m), 2016 also saw SJL staff numbers rise from 41 to 47, our commission income grow by over 20% and our number of customers surpass 60,000.
There were many notable achievements in 2016 and factors that contributed toward this impressive year of growth – Many new product lines (including our own products where we are cover holders in Lloyds of London), the launch and immediate success of our newly formed commercial department, the continued support from our growing number of over 1,400 broker partners, the launch of our international business (where we have started trading in many different parts of the world), our investment in our staff that saw us achieve Investors in people accreditation and, above all, the hard work, excellence and dedication of our team.
In addition, SJL also proudly managed to help a large number of clients during the recent administration of insurer Gable which lead to high praise from a number of industry commentators.
SJL have even further exciting and ambitious growth and development plans for 2017 – Where our targeted growth is even bigger (well over 20%), staff numbers are also planned to increase to over 55 to compliment our growth strategy (helping SJL to cement the exceptional customer service provided to our clients and partners that we pride ourselves on), we will launch several new and exclusive binders with A-Rated insurance carriers (complimenting the already impressive array of insurance products at our disposal), an office move to larger premises, IT development, further diversification, the additional launch of a London office to service both our London market business and our international business, and we also have several other significant plans which we are unable to announce at this stage but will do as soon as they are finalised.
As you will have read above, we have a number of positions available at SJL Insurance Services at various levels, some with no experience necessary and others at a higher more technical level. So if you are (or know someone who is) interested in working within a rapidly growing insurance brokerage in the heart of Worcester, please send your/their CV to [email protected] (a full and comprehensive employee benefits package is available).
Thank you to all of our staff, customers, broker partners and insurers. We look forward to working with you all this year.
