LV= Expanding Office in Ipswich and Recruiting for New Staff

Press release: 08/06/2011

LV= today announces it is expanding its current operation in Ipswich. LV= is a leading mutual financial company and offers a wide range of financial products including life insurance, pensions and retirement solutions, plus pet, home, car, travel and commercial general insurance products. The office in Ipswich deals with car insurance queries within the companies' general insurance business.

Following record growth over the past year, the company, which already employs around 130 people in Ipswich, is expanding its claims division and as a result is currently recruiting for over 50 new jobs.

The majority of the roles available are handling car insurance claims involving personal injuries. The operation in Ipswich is predominantly a claims office and the staff based there deal with customers, brokers and other interested parties in claims, such as lawyers, car hire companies and doctors. LV= is looking for people with experience of the insurance industry for these roles.

LV= has grown significantly in the last few years and is now the UK's fourth biggest car insurer. As the company continues to expand further roles are likely to become available in Ipswich over the course of 2011. LV= currently employs 4,500 staff across over 20 offices.

Peter Horton, operations director of LV= general insurance, said: "LV= is going through a period of significant growth so it's a very exciting time to join us. With many other financial companies in the Ipswich area making cut-backs, we are actually expanding so this not only means that there is the opportunity to join us but also lots of great career prospects. As a company we offer employees a competitive salary and in addition, a great range of perks including 26 days holiday, a highly competitive pension scheme and a yearly performance-related bonus."

New recruits will receive an excellent package of benefits including a competitive salary, as well as an annual bonus scheme. There are various shift patterns available. Jobseekers interested in finding out more should go to or call our recruitment hotline on 01202 502434.
