A COMPANY is expanding again – after already taking on 60 extra workers since January.

Peterlee-based claims management company Albany Assistance, has launched a recruitment campaign to take on an extra 50 workers. The need for more staff comes in response to rapidly increasing business levels, which means the company has to expand its workforce.

“We’re looking forward to continued growth and as a direct consequence, the need for an increasing number of high quality candidates to maintain service quality and the success of our growing business”

The Albany team, including the workers taken on in January, is 500-strong in Peterlee. But now, the extra staff are needed at Albany Assistance’s operations centre, which is based on the Bracken Hill Business Park, in Peterlee.

Over 65 new full-time employees have already joined the company since January, and the new campaign aims to fill jobs which range from advisor and team manager to support roles.

Operations director Susan Howe said: “We have made a strategic commitment to the location of our operational centre here in the North East.

“We’re looking forward to continued growth and as a direct consequence, the need for an increasing number of high-quality candidates to maintain service quality and the success of our growing business”.

Peter Stabler, Albany Assistance HR Manager said: “Events like these help with the high volume of recruitment we need to achieve as our business continues to grow, and we’re looking forward to finding talented people to join our team”.

Albany Assistance provides insurance claims services to major UK insurance providers and brokers. Its services include nationwide claims management, vehicle repair and vehicle replacements.
