S&G Response expands operations with new office in Halifax


Insurance claims solutions business S&G Response has expanded its operations within the North of England, opening a new 4,000 sqft office in Halifax.

The office opened in May 2022 and created an initial 20 new jobs in Halifax, with plans to increase to 50 over the course of the year.

The new office is located in Holroyd Mill, Dean Clough, situated within easy reach of Halifax town centre.

Andy Whatmough, managing director at S&G Response, said: “We’re thrilled to be expanding to the bustling town of Halifax. The town has a very strong insurance community already, and we’re hoping to strengthen that by continuing our business growth in the town. This new office will increase our capability and scope, and by increasing our geographical footprint we can mitigate our business risk of operating in a sole location.”

The company is eager to provide new opportunities to local people. Currently employing a team of 150 people in Cheshire, S&G Response is looking to expand this further with employment opportunities in Halifax.

The automotive specialist company was provided with the “Best Company” accreditation in 2020 along with being recognised in the “Top 75 North West” companies to work for. It is also part of the Institute of Customer Service and holds the “Gold” standard from Investors in People.

Anne Pass, head of HR, said “We are initially looking to secure a further 30 new team members to join our motor claims department this summer. However, our business is growing rapidly, and we feel this will increase at a controlled pace towards the end of the year.”

“We’re keen to attract local applicants from within a 10-mile radius, and the office is perfectly located close to the town centre and all public transportation, which is beneficial for locals and our company’s carbon footprint!”

She continued: “We have a very strong internal culture here at S&G, we want to maintain a one team mentality, and enable both offices to work together to continue our charity challenges and team building exercises as a full company.”

In 2020/2021, S&G Response raised £37,555 for local charities. The company intends to continue this work in Halifax and support local causes.
