Zurich-owned broker moves Burnley operations to Cheltenham, putting 77 people at risk of redundancy

Endsleigh has confirmed that it is moving its Burnley operations to its headquarters in Cheltenham, putting 77 people at risk of redundancy.

The broker is currently in the middle of being sold to A-Plan by Zurich in a deal which was announced earlier this year.

A spokesperson for Endsleigh said: “Last year at Endsleigh we announced a strategic review of our business and a transformation programme to ensure we’re in the best shape to grow and meet the evolving needs of our customers.

“As part of this process we’ve analysed the sustainability of our claims operation. Given several factors, we’ve made the difficult decision to close our claims operation.

“As a result, we will be vacating our Burnley office and have placed 77 people who are based there at risk of redundancy. We will transfer our sales, service, quality assurance and insight functions to Cheltenham so that we can continue to deliver for our customers.

“We’ve communicated this news to our employees and are working hard to support those affected by this uncertain and difficult time.”
