Over the last 18 months, 1st Choice Insurance of Jupiter House on Shrewsbury Business Park, have continued to implement their growth plan by expanding their departments and hiring new staff.

Jamie will be overseeing a team of six new Sales Executives, which is set to rise in the near future. The new Willenhall office is now open in Graphic House on New Road.
“We are delighted to be announcing our new Willenhall office. Although we are a company based in ‘little Shrewsbury’, 1st Choice Insurance helps customers throughout the entire UK find the best value policy to protect their business”. Explains Callum Watkins, Head of Marketing. “Our expansion into new territories will allow us to attract some really valuable and experienced people to join our company, allowing us to save more businesses time, hassle and money on their insurance. We want to let local people know we are in the area to stay. We encourage people to please get in contact to discuss career opportunities, and likewise, we welcome all local businesses to get in touch with our team to see how we can help”.
The company hopes to generate more business and create more jobs in the area, as they expand across the West Midlands. They felt that a second premises was a great way to achieve this goal. “This is a new phase for the 1st Choice Insurance brand. Despite obvious obstacles, we are proud to have helped some very good quality ‘displaced professionals’ get back into a great, long term career. We see the future being very bright and cannot wait to help more businesses along the journey”. Adds Jason Martin, Managing Director.
