Insurance Giant

As one of the UK’s top forty brokers with over 230,000 policyholders, our client is the most used motorcycle insurance specialist in the UK and Ireland. The company is a major player in the classic car insurance sector and provides a range of value-added private car, van, household and travel policies.

The Scope

Historically our client utilised traditional recruitment agencies for its staffing needs, which led to high costs, poor candidate quality and high attrition rates. In 2009, MBA took over the management of an annual, cyclical campaign for our client, which involved the recruitment of 120 sales and service contact centre advisors in a three month period. This effort has culminated in over 700 new employees across their business. MBA is responsible for the attraction, selection, offer management and retention initiatives that support the company’s recruitment programme.
