H&H Insurance Brokers, who earlier this year received the insurance industry’s highest accolade – Corporate Chartered Broker status – have just marked the milestone of two employees, Sandra Hodgson and Rachel Orr, both reaching their 20th anniversary working for the company. While on the first step of the career ladder is Amy Robinson who has successfully passed her apprenticeship year as Apprentice Account Handler, with the company.
Sandra and Rachel, who are qualified with a Certificate in Insurance (Cert CII) and both Farm Insurance Account Handlers, were each presented with a 20 years’ service award certificate.
H&H Insurance Brokers are one of leading firms of independent insurance broker’s in the UK, and they place great emphasis on the each member of staff’s continual professional development. Upon reaching this anniversary, Sandra said:
“I am absolutely delighted to have been awarded this certificate alongside my good friend and colleague Rachel. It is a testament of the company’s professional attitude towards staff development, and ethics towards its staff members, which is why we have stayed working for the same company for two decades.
“As a company H&H Insurance Brokers have supported me through my career, whilst continuing to develop my skills. Key to the longevity of my career at H&H Insurance Brokers is that I am happy in my role.”
Also evidence of the company’s commitment to their staff is their apprenticeship scheme. Not only keen on supporting and developing current members of staff, their Apprentice Account Handler has just completed her training year. Amy is now fully employed within the business as Trainee Account Handler working towards her Cert CII.
Paul Graham, Operations Director said: “We are delighted that both existing and new members of staff here feel supported. We believe that a happy team, and continued staff development ensures our customers receive the very best service on offer in the region.”
Established in 1987, H&H Insurance Brokers Ltd employs over 30 members of staff across the north of England, Wales and Scotland and are today one of the foremost independent insurance brokers in the country. Increasingly, companies need to ensure that they are adequately insured both from a business protection and legislative perspective; H&H Insurance Brokers offers a broad portfolio of policies across a range of specialisms, with clients ranging in size from small start-ups to large businesses.
Concluding Rachel on receiving her 20 year certificate said: “I thoroughly enjoy working for H&H Insurance Brokers. My role is varied which means that no two days are ever the same. I know both Sandra and I are keen to continue with our careers here, perhaps for another 20 years, alongside Amy.”
