ERS, the UK’s largest specialist motor insurer, received distinct recognition for its contribution to the economy in South West Wales at a business awards event held last Friday (19 July).
ERS was named winner of the editor’s choice award at the annual Top 100 Companies in South West Wales awards, which pay tribute to the businesses creating jobs and wealth in the region. The event, which was held at Swansea’s Marriott Hotel, also unveiled the Top 100 Companies in South West Wales ranking, highlighting the contribution local companies make to the local economy.
ERS employs more than 500 people in Swansea and is still expanding rapidly. The company stands out for its investment in the training and development of employees. As it expands further, ERS will be offering even more opportunities at all experience levels for individuals seeking meaningful career development.
The company has made substantial investment in growth in the region, recognising the potential that Swansea has when it comes to recruiting new employees. In anticipation of this, it moved into new 33,000 sq ft premises in Crucible Park, Swansea Vale in 2015 to facilitate its ongoing expansion in the city.
ERS provides motor insurance for specialist vehicles such as classic cars, combine harvesters and the most exclusive of supercars for unique events like the Gumball 3000 Rally.
The company is increasingly developing its employees in Swansea to undertake more specialist roles across functions like IT, claims and underwriting, giving rise to a range of opportunities.
Lauren Edwards, HR Director at ERS, said:
“We are delighted to have been recognised through the editor’s choice award at this year’s Top 100 awards in South West Wales. Creating jobs and wealth in the city has been central to our operations and we are thrilled to have had our efforts acknowledged through such a prestigious event.
“We are dedicated to offering not just jobs but real career opportunities to our employees. Investing in our people and nurturing their development is of utmost importance to enable the company to function optimally, while ensuring our employees are happy and supported in reaching their career goals.”
