Our insurance team covers 3 main areas – product, pricing and governance. We focus on protecting our customers and their purchases from the unforeseen or unexpected. And the figures prove we’re actually pretty good at it!
Last year we helped more than 40,000 customers by paying a claim on their insurance policy. We also protected over 350K new customer purchases by providing a warranty. And, through paying warranty claims, we supplied over 900 new TV’s that, if we put together end to end, would measure more than ½ mile long. Pretty interesting stuff!Job Search & Apply
