A grow­ing Peter­bor­ough com­pany is seek­ing to fill more than 100 job va­can­cies at its city head­quar­ters.

In­sur­ance gi­ant the BGL Group, based in Bakewell Road, Or­ton South­gate, aims to re­cruit 104 new staff for var­i­ous roles in Peter­bor­ough.

The va­can­cies have been cre­ated as part of the on­go­ing growth of the BGL Group, which is con­sid­er­ing a list­ing on the Lon­don Stock Ex­change, and has an­nual rev­enues of £507 mil­lion and more than eight mil­lion cus­tomers.

Chief ex­ec­u­tive Matthew Don­ald­son said: “BGL has more than 100 va­can­cies open for Peter­bor­ough-based roles, the ma­jor­ity are new va­can­cies across a num­ber of dif­fer­ent dis­ci­plines in­clud­ing tech, data and mar­ket­ing.”

In ad­di­tion, the com­pany, which has 1,800 staff in Peter­bor­ough plus a fur­ther 2,800 peo­ple world­wide, wants an­other 129 peo­ple for its busi­nesses in Lon­don, Paris, York, Sun­der­land and Wake­field.

BGL is pos­si­bly best known for its com­par­i­son site com­parethe­mar­ket.com pro­moted by TV meerkats Alek­sandr and Sergei.

Kathleen Har­rop, act­ing chief HR of­fi­cer, said: “BGL is a grow­ing or­gan­i­sa­tion and we’re al­ways look­ing for new ta­lent to join our teams.

“With more than 8.5 mil­lion cus­tomers we be­lieve the op­por­tu­ni­ties to suc­ceed here are end­less. Our em­ploy­ees tell us we’re a great place to work and we’re lucky many choose to de­velop their ca­reer at BGL.”

News of the va­can­cies comes as the num­ber of peo­ple claim­ing Job­seeker’s Allowance in Peter­bor­ough fell to 1,770 in June, down by 90 for the same time last year.
