STAFF at a Scarborough insurance broker are celebrating after their company won a national award.

Bluefin Insurance, which has an office in Belgrave Crescent, won the Training Initiative of the Year category at the Insurance Times Awards in London’s Battersea Park.

Bluefin employs 1600 people nationwide at more than 40 other locations and operates a range of training programmes including apprenticeships and leadership skills as well as supporting study towards professional qualifications for its workforce. It recently achieved Chartered Broker status under the auspices of the Chartered Insurance Institute.

Andy Parsons, Bluefin HR director, said: “Customers choose their insurance broker on the quality of service they provide so it’s important that we have professional, knowledgeable, helpful staff if we are to thrive in a competitive environment. Our investment in training pays dividends in growing our business.”
