Cowens Inspires Next Generation with Team Expansion




Cowens Inspires Next Generation with Team Expansion

East Midlands based insurance broker and financial planner, Cowens Group, has strengthened its team of insurance experts by taking on eight new members of staff in the past six months who are all under the age of 25.

The group, which comprises of seven Account Handlers and one Apprentice Administration Assistant, have been brought on board as part of Cowens’ plans to expand its services, as the business continues to grow its client base in various new sectors across the UK. 

Bringing enthusiasm, strong work ethic and ambition to the company, the new Account Handlers will make up part of Cowens’ up and coming generation of young insurance professionals, helping to future-proof its services and strengthen its reputation in the East Midlands and beyond. 

The new recruits all join the commercial insurance side of the business, Cowens Survival Capability, at its Mansfield headquarters. They include Account Handlers; Amy Town, Ryan Taylor, Hannah Jiggins, Alice Swan, Freya Bryan, Josh Smyth and Kiera Tarpey, and Apprentice Administration Assistant Eve Stenson who is the business’ youngest employee.

Key Partnerships Director, Declan Shaw, commented on the business’ recent expansion.

He said: “At Cowens, our ethos revolves around providing the very best customer service for our clients, and I believe our recruitment strategy over the past six months is a true reflection of that. We are pleased to have grown our team with so many talented new employees who share this vision of bringing the highest levels of professionalism to our industry.

“We have always prided ourselves on being an inclusive business for people of all ages and backgrounds, so providing opportunities for young professionals is high on our agenda. The business world is constantly evolving, and we are keen to evolve with it by creating a friendly, exciting and rewarding place to work where the next generation of employees can progress their careers, whilst retaining the high standards of service we are known for.”

The eight new starters have grown Cowens’ workforce by 20% since April, making 2019 one of the biggest years for expansion the business has ever seen.

Declan continued: “Following our rebrand and restructure last year, we’ve taken on a large amount of new work, so it has been incredibly important to strengthen our team to support this business growth. Each person we’ve brought on board brings something unique and I’m looking forward to seeing how this new range of personalities and skills benefits the clients we help. It is brilliant to be able to support the careers of some of the up and coming stars of the insurance industry and I look forward to seeing them flourish and succeed in their new roles.”

Cowens Group is one of the Midlands’ leading insurance brokers and financial planning companies, with offices in Mansfield, Stamford, Birmingham and Milton Keynes and clients across the country. Brands under the Group umbrella include Risk Solutions, Financial Planning, Employee Benefits, Survival Capability and Private Clients, offering a wide range of services to both private and commercial clients.
