Saga create 1000 jobs


Saga, the company best-known for providing insurance and other services to over-50s, has announced plans to create 1,000 vacancies.

In an announcement that may interest those currently searching for graduate jobs in insurance, a spokesperson for Saga told BBC News: "This is very much a strategic drive to create a national healthcare business with its roots here in Kent."

"This expansion means that we are going to be looking for skilled people who know about the health sector, as well as people who would like to try their hand at working elsewhere in Saga, as we continue to expand," they added on This is Kent.

It is thought the recruitment drive would create the 1,000 new roles at locations in Thanet, Folkestone and Hythe; in addition to the 800 jobs created in Hastings last year, at the One Priory Square office block.

Reports have suggested that the Thanet site will host a meeting between Saga managers and site staff, and the Conservative MP for South Thanet, Laura Sandys; as well as David Willetts, the science minister.

The positive news means local professionals looking for jobs in insurance companies might have a shot at joining the prestigious organisation.

In addition to insurance, Saga also offers services such as finance and holidays to Brits age 50 and over, and claims working for them provides employees with "all the training and development" they need, in addition to "excellent opportunities to progress your career."
