Gallagher to boost Brierley Hill operation with recruitment drive

Gallagher is recruiting for a number of staff for its Brierley Hill office to further increase the insurance broker’s presence in the West Midlands and to strengthen the support of its growing small and medium-sized enterprise (SME) client base.

As part of an ongoing recruitment campaign, 20 new insurance specialists have recently been appointed at Gallagher’s Brierley Hill office, based in Custom House at The Waterfront.

The new wave of recruits include sales and business development professionals, who will help to capitalise on growth opportunities through progressing new business leads, plus account managers, who will focus on nurturing and developing relationships with existing clients.

There are a number of roles currently still open, ranging from entry level posts to opportunities for experienced insurance professionals with a proven track record in supporting larger SMEs and mid-size organisations.

Gallagher’s Brierley Hill office operates as a dedicated service centre for UK business clients across a range of industries.

Having had a presence in Brierley Hill since 1994, the office has enjoyed consistent year-on-year growth, and now has a 100-strong workforce.

An additional 130 staff in the West Midlands are employed across offices in Birmingham and Coventry.

Richard Connop, managing director of Gallagher’s Brierley Hill office, said: “We’re delighted with the sustained growth we’ve experienced in recent years. We have increased our headcount in Brierley Hill over 50% in the past five years, and bringing more talented colleagues on board is key for us and reflects our ongoing commitment to investing in talent and creating employment and career opportunities for people in the West Midlands.”
