New HR head Lucy steps to the challenge!
Many of us like to take on a challenge at this time of year - and Lucy Roberts has certainly done that by joining our team to lead our latest recruitment drive!
We’re delighted to welcome Lucy as our new head of HR, with the task of leading us into our next exciting phase of growth by increasing staff numbers by 25%. Previously HR Manager at Kearns Solicitors, Lucy brings a wealth of experience in ensuring people are at the core of business growth and success, and she’s already making an impact at our Cardiff Bay HQ.
Lucy said: “I’m thrilled to be taking my next steps with ActiveQuote at such an exciting time for the company, and I’m looking forward to working as part of a team which continues to deliver growth across the business.
“We will be looking to increase the head-count with 40 vacancies throughout 2020, and I’m particularly excited about supporting our individual departments in developing their teams further. The team at ActiveQuote is extremely welcoming, ambitious and focused, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
Lucy, from Porthcawl, is also mum to a daughter and two sons, and spends her time outside work supporting her children in a range of sporting activities. And, keen to enter into our ActiveQuote spirit, she has already signed up to take part in the 2020 Three Peaks mountain climb challenge as part of our team in July, raising money for childhood epilepsy charity The Daisy Garland.
ActiveQuote CEO Rob Saunders said: “It’s fantastic to have on Lucy on board, who brings some wonderful attributes with her at a time of continued growth and, crucially, as we prepare to welcome yet more new faces to the team as a result.”
Lucy’s appointment follows our 10th year anniversary in 2019, marking our success as the first comparison service to compare health insurance policies in the UK. We are now the UK’s leading comparison website and broker of health and protection insurance products, including private medical insurance, income protection, life insurance and critical illness cover.
If you’re interested in joining our expanding workforce, we have a number of vacancies in sales and sales support. For more information visit www.activequote.com/careers.
