LV= Expanding Operations in Leeds

Press release: 14/12/2010

LV= today announces it is expanding its current operation in Leeds. LV= is a leading mutual financial company and offers a wide range of financial products. The team in Leeds are based within the companies’ general insurance operation.

The company, which already employs circa 100 people in Leeds, is creating a centre of excellence for its claims division in Leeds and as a result is currently recruiting for over 30 new jobs.

The majority of the roles currently available are handling car insurance claims involving personal injuries. LV= is the UK’s fourth biggest car insurer and these roles mean the personal injury team in Leeds is doubling in size. The operation in Leeds 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, ideally specifically in negotiating personal injury claims.

As well as these roles, LV= is looking for people to work within its credit hire claims team at both officer and team leader level.

LV= is planning to continue expanding its operations and expects further roles to become available in Leeds over the course of 2011.

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. 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 a company we offer employees a competitive salary and in addition, a great range of perks including 26 days holiday as standard, a highly competitive pension scheme and a yearly performance-related bonus.”

As well as its office in Leeds, LV= also has offices in nearby Huddersfield. This is where its road rescue company, Britannia Rescue, is based and its 24-hour claims reporting call centre. Roles are also currently available at this office for people both with and without insurance industry experience.
