LV= Recruiting for over 300 staff

Press release: 17/05/2010

Insurance and Investment group LV= announced it is currently recruiting for over 300 jobs. The jobs being recruited for will be based in locations around the UK including in Bournemouth, London, Huddersfield, Hitchin and Bristol.

LV= offers a wide range of financial products and services including life insurance, protection, investments, pensions and retirement solutions, plus pet, home, car, travel and commercial general insurance products.

Many of the roles will be based in the company's general insurance division and include positions in sales, customer services, claims and technical management. Other roles currently on offer are within various head office functions including marketing, ecommerce, finance and human resources.

The company has undergone a transformation since 2007 when a new board led by CEO Mike Rogers, was appointed. As well as a new brand image, the company has opened new offices around the UK and made a number of corporate acquisitions including Highway Insurance and the former GE Life business 'Tomorrow'.

David Smith, HR director of LV=, said:

"LV= is going through a period of significant growth so it's a very exciting time to join us. Our general insurance operation is a particular hotspot for growth and we are looking for people both with experience in this field but also for individuals who are looking to move into this sector from other careers. When many other financial companies are 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 well as an excellent basic salary and flexible benefits package, employees enjoy an annual bonus scheme and also incentive based pay for sales staff. The company operates from 8am - 9pm Monday to Friday and between 8am - 6pm at weekends, meaning there is plenty of flexibility for part-time or full-time hours to suit various lifestyles.

LV= has been operating since 1843 and manages more than £9.3 billion on behalf of its members and customers. It is the UK's largest friendly society and a leading mutual financial services group.
