Health insurer is creating new jobs

Have your say

A fast-growing Sheffield-based health insurance business is heading for further expansion and creating new jobs.

Insure Your Health was established in 2009 to provide private medical insurance and has grown rapidly over the past three years.

Having started out with a team of six people in the Portergate building on Ecclesall Road, the company expanded to Fountain Precinct two years ago, where it now employs 90, and has joined forces with a similar business in Dorset, which employs 50.

The company has added life insurance, income protection and critical illness cover to its private medical offering and, following its acquisition by UK and South African-owned PruHealth Holdings earlier this year, is planning to create more jobs in Sheffield and Dorset.

“We have got intensive expansion plans,” says managing director Simon Morrall.

“We want to create employment opportunities, especially in sales.

“When we moved to the Fountain Precinct we took over a floor and we will have filled that following our latest recruitment campaign.”
