Car insurance provider 1ST Central is planning to create 82 new jobs at its Haywards Heath offices in Sussex.
The expansion of the Haywards Heath offices will see jobs created across all areas of the business, including its claims and contact centre departments.
The development comes shortly after the news that 1ST Central is expanding its geographic footprint in the North, with the opening of a new office in Manchester, creating 150 new jobs in Salford.
The expansion of the business follows a period of continued investment into the company, which has been accredited in The Sunday Times’ annual Best Companies to Work For report as “one to watch”.
Andy James, UK CEO at 1ST Central, said: “Our Haywards Heath offices have grown rapidly over the past few years making it a vibrant and exciting place to work. We pride ourselves on being a great employer and we hope that by expanding our Haywards Heath team we will encourage the next generation of talent to start a career in insurance.”
