We are the only locally owned, independent multi-channel provider in the Northern Ireland market.
Newtownards, Co Down (PRWEB) March 30, 2009
Hughes Insurance, the largest locally owned car insurance broker in Northern Ireland, has created 40 jobs across their branch network in Northern Ireland. The job creation follows a recent investment of £1 million to develop and accommodate the increase in business the company has delivered over the past calendar year.
The local company now employs over 180 staff throughout Northern Ireland and plans to continue to grow their workforce to accommodate their expanding customer base. This growth is the result of their ability to offer Northern Ireland drivers competitively priced insurance products the competition simply cannot match. "We are the only locally owned, independent multi-channel provider in the Northern Ireland market." States Leslie Hughes, Chairman of Hughes Insurance: "We have a very competitive product - not just on price, but also on the benefits we offer and how we interact with our customers to provide our service. This combination is unique in this market. Our customers realize this and many are switching providers so they can take advantage of our products."
The investment over the past year includes a recently launched website, which contains a state of the art online quotation system, and the network expansion which included the opening of new branches in Newry, Coleraine, Omagh and The Kennedy Centre in West Belfast.
The investment and job creation reflects the local broker's ongoing commitment to delivering a local service, as a local operator which employs local people. Leslie comments: "We started Hughes Insurance 32 years ago with a vision to support the local market through local people. This recent investment accommodates our customers changing needs and is another milestone in the progression of Hughes Insurance. We were the first independent broker in Northern Ireland to establish a purpose built call centre, we have a footprint of 12 branches across Northern Ireland and now we provide the full compliment of communications options for our customers - all based in Northern Ireland. We support our customers online, on the phone and on the High Street."
The strength of Hughes Insurance in the local market is their ongoing independence from the major insurance providers according to Gareth Brady, Chief Executive of Hughes Insurance: "Our customers know they are dealing with a locally owned business when they deal with Hughes Insurance - we offer independent advice. Simply put this means the customer gets the best price and the added value of the additional benefits we can deliver on their behalf. Currently no one else can compete with our combination of value and benefits - this is why we continue to support our indigenous growth by investing locally in our business."
