Royal London To Insure 450 New Jobs In Cheshire

Royal London, the UK pensions and mutual life firm, has announced plans for an extra 450 new Cheshire jobs near to its current offices in Wilmslow.

Royal London already employs 900 staff in full and part time roles in Wilmslow, but now plans to grow its headcount by half as much again as it adds further office space in close proximity to its current Alderley Road base in the town.

The insurer also has a presence in London, Bath, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Northern Ireland - but impressive financial results, combined with new pension legislation from the government, has led to Royal London requiring more staff to grow its business going forward.

Jerry Toher, Chief Executive Officer of Royal London’s Consumer Division, said that his company needs better office space in this part of Cheshire to accommodate their swelling staff numbers:

“Wilmslow is a key part in our success story, both in respect of our achievements to date and our aspirations for the future. Many of our staff live locally and are proud of the economic and social ties between Royal London and the town. We anticipate growing our Wilmslow operation over time, increasing the number of full time staff by 50 per cent and providing significant new employment opportunities for the town,” said Mr Toher.

Chief Executive of the East Cheshire Chamber of Commerce, Dave Watson, welcomed the news which will see Royal London eventually provide jobs for 1,350 people in Wilmslow, saying:

“We are delighted to hear the news that Royal London is looking to expand in Wilmslow. They are already the town’s largest employer and it is great to see Royal London wanting to create jobs here in East Cheshire rather than elsewhere.”
