New jobs for Teesside as Leeds insurance company reveals plans for first North East branch

A Leeds insurance company has announced that it has chosen Teesside as the location for its latest branch.

Attis Insurance, created by the founder of Henderson Insurance Brokers, will be opening its new office in the Port of Middlesbrough.

The office will be the firm’s third location after having opened a Lincolnshire branch, and will work with commercial clients across most business sectors.

It is aiming to create at least ten job roles across the next few months at the new branch, which is in the centre of the region’s new Freeport area.

Joe Henderson, founder of the company, commented: “This is a really exciting opportunity as Attis Insurance expands. Teesside is on the up and up and the Port of Middlesbrough is the logical location for our third office.

“We want to quickly become part of a supportive and innovative business community and over the next few months employ at least ten people in the Middlesbrough office.

“I know the area and its businesses well and understand that building relationships and providing personal service, even to the largest and most corporate clients, is vital.

“The Attis commitment is to prioritising personal service at every stage of the relationship and that is what sets us apart.”

Ben Houchen, mayor of Tees Valley, said: “Attis Insurance is the latest, and much welcome, addition to our strong and growing professional services sector and it won’t be the last.

“I’m delighted they’ve chosen us for their latest office and recognise the value of our businesses across many sectors.

“Joe says that we’re a region on the up, and who would argue? This example just goes to show that working hard to get our message out there really does directly translate into good-quality jobs for local people.”
