Saffron Insurance opens major second office in Saffron Walden

SAFFRON Insurance over the last few years has grown from strength to strength and is investing in further premises in Saffron Walden.

The companye ‘hub’ opened its doors in the middle of August and is now the home to over 35 of Saffron Insurance staff.

The team is a mixture of staff from Saffron Insurance offices in east Anglia, the head office in Saffron Walden and seven new starters all recruited locally. The new team is currently going through a six-week training programme as they start their careers in the world of insurance.

The High Street office has a new training suite where all new starters will be trained, and Saffron is also encouraging staff to further their education with chartered insurance exams and financial services NVQ’s.

The new office based just off Gold Street has been completely refurbished with the support of local businesses. Landmark Interiors Ltd based in Newport handled the project management, which took the premises back to a shell.

The refurbishments took only 10 weeks to create a high-tech working environment.

David Beswick, managing director, said: “I’m really pleased with the finished premises, it was very important to me that we created a positive working environment.
