Plum opens new underwriting and support centre as part of growth strategy
Plum Underwriting (Plum), the specialist home insurance managing general agent, has opened a new underwriting and service centre as part of its strategy to support continued growth.
The centre, located in Basildon, Essex, brings together underwriting, claims, pricing, accounts and administration teams from three office locations in Southend, Brentwood and Sudbury, creating a centralised operational hub to support all areas of the business. The new centre opens with 25 staff and Plum is continuing its expansion with immediate appointments and plans for further recruitment in the coming months.
As part of the development of the centre, Plum has taken on an underwriting team from its third-party administrator partner, Hood Group.
David Whitaker, Managing Director, said: “This new service centre reflects Plum’s continual focus on delivering a dedicated and efficient service to our brokers and their clients.
“By bringing together our teams outside London into a central hub there are both efficiency and service benefits that will enable us to further innovate and develop the market-leading underwriting and high-quality service standards brokers expect from Plum as a leading provider of specialist home insurance.”
