At least 10 extra staff will be taken on by insurer across various departments

Insurer Elite is set to make a raft of appointments as it plans to expand.

Chief executive Jason Smart said the business will take on at least 10 more staff across claims, reinsurance, IT, administration, underwriting and operations to support new and existing projects as they expand.

He added: “We know what we do well at Elite and we have taken the time to put the right people in place to get the job done properly.

“The strong relationships we build have opened many doors for us and we have a number of exciting opportunities in the pipeline.”

Some of the roles will be based at the company’s UK headquarters in Grantham, while others will operate out of its London and Warrington offices.
