Despite the difficult year a Black Country firm of insurance brokers is continuing to grow as they take on more staff.

Gravity Risk Services has seen its revenue increase by 55 per cent despite intense pressure from the coronavirus pandemic this year.

The amount of premiums going through the business has rocketed from £4.2million to £7.5million over the past 12 months.

As a result, it has invested heavily in recruitment taking on a new group broker this month (NOV) and planning to take on four people on Universal Credit as part of the Government’s Kickstarter job scheme.

Dale Collett, managing director of Gravity Risk Services, said:

“This year has been a true test of the character of the people in any business and Gravity has pulled together and responded remarkably well. 

“The team has supported our clients through the many challenges and also attracted a number of new clients because of our reputation of keeping our promises.

“Despite the obvious pressures we are in a position to take on new staff and are now even looking to double in size over the next five years.

“Our new staff are helping us to continue that level of service which has helped us grow year on year.”
