Altrincham firm looking to recruit 100 staff in three months

An Altrincham firm is looking to recruit an extra 100 staff after an upturn in business.

The Claims Guys Limited (TCG), based in Lynnfield House in Church Street, is looking to add to its 500-strong team.

Trading since 2009, TCG handles around 25,000 claims per week, the majority of which are for payment protection insurance (PPI).

It has helped customers claim back more than £364m and is now looking to employ 100 more staff over the next three months.

Tim Berry, CEO of TCG, said: “Despite ongoing media reports of an imminent downturn in PPI claims we have enjoyed our most successful year to date. With both an increase in the volume of people making claims and a number of new projects in the pipeline, we knew it wouldn’t be too long before we looked to grow further.”

The expansion will see the company, which made revenues of £47m for the year to the end of 2015 with a pre-tax profit of £3.7m, move into neighbouring offices at Hamilton House.
