Specialist insurance and warranty company, Advantage Home Construction Insurance (AHCI), has added six new members of staff to their technical team over the past six months, reflecting the rapid growth of the business, which is a leading structural defects warranty specialist with offices in Warrington, Birmingham and London.
The company, which has its headquarters in Warrington, began expanding its technical team at the start of 2018 and following a successful year for the business, the new hires will leave AHCI poised to continue their expansion this year.
The new job roles range from junior surveyors to RICS Chartered Surveyors and Simon Cooper, Director of Technical at AHCI said: “Our Technical section has developed within the last few months and now boasts five Chartered and qualified Regional Warranty Surveyors together with two Trainee Warranty Surveyors, which provides our client base with both technical and site support throughout the duration of the design and build process.”
Advantage was founded almost five years ago and swiftly established itself as one of the leaders in the field of latent defects insurance. The rapid growth of their technical team reflects the company’s overall expansion. They have recently opened a new office in the South East and have also been recruiting for non-technical staff.
Advantage covers both commercial and residential properties and projects ranging in scale from individual one-off houses to developments with a build cost in excess of £50 million. They work closely with self-builders, developers, contractors and housing associations as well as intermediaries such as local authorities, solicitors property advisors, architects, financial advisors, banks and administrators.
With demand for their services growing, the Directors of Advantage plan to make more new hires in 2019, creating more highly skilled well-paid jobs in Warrington. They already work with leading insurers and property developers, providing warranties for a host of the nation’s most prestigious developments.
