Andover-based Be Wiser Insurance is on the expansion trail with confirmation of plans to open a brand new office in Swindon which is set to create up to 350 jobs in the next three years. Be Wiser Insurance, one of the UK’s fastest growing and largest privately owned insurance brokers, currently employs more than 700 people at its headquarters in Hampshire and says the new facility in Swindon will be key to its ongoing expansion plans.
The company has signed a lease on 10,000 sq ft of offices in York House at Edison Park and will open in approximately three months time once IT and fitting out works are complete. Financial director, Andrew Dunkerley, said: “We have known for some time that we needed to choose a new location for the future expansion and growth of the business and Swindon fits the bill perfectly.”
Be Wiser has worked with Forward Swindon to identify and secure new offices which are set to employ several hundred people as the insurance broker continues to expand.
Andrew said: “We are looking forward to being able to recruit from a new employment pool and we will shortly be on the look-out for bright, motivated staff of all ages. Our ability to be able to offer training all the way through the Chartered Insurance Institute professional qualifications is unique for a business of our size and demonstrates the importance we place on each and every member of staff.”
He added: “Our Andover based staff and offices will continue without any changes and we view Swindon as being best-placed to cope with our future anticipated staff number expansion.” To find out more about the company visit www.bewiser.co.uk
