What you’ll do
Our colleagues play the most important part in creating exceptional experiences for our customers every day. That means delivering an experience that is better than expected, with every customer, every day. So, we want exceptional people to join our team!
If this sounds like you, then we’d love to hear from you!
Saga Insurance is a modern, fast paced and challenging sales and customer service environment where you will spend each day fulfilling a variety of needs by selling our fantastic range of Saga products as well as providing first class customer service to our new and existing customers.

The Ideal Candidate
When you’ll work
We are open 8am - 8pm Monday to Friday, 8:30am - 5pm Saturday and 9am - 5pm on a Sunday. Don’t worry, you’d never be asked to work from 8am to 8pm as the maximum shift duration is 8 hours, and you get 6 weeks prior notice of your rota.

About the Company
Having spent our first 30 years focused on travel, Saga launched Saga Magazine and developed home and motor insurance and financial services in the 1980s. Private medical and pet insurance followed in the 1990s, along with the launch of our own cruise ship operation. The strength of the Saga brand provides the Group with the ability to develop in-house or partner with suppliers to offer our customers and members highly differentiated, competitively priced products that meet their evolving needs.
Saga exists to help our customers and members lead the life they want to lead. To succeed in this, we know that the most important thing to do is to listen to our customers and members. At the heart of our business model is our drive to know more about our customers’ wants and needs so we are best placed to serve them.

The Saga brand has become one of the most recognised and trusted brands amongst UK consumers in this demographic and is recognised for its high-quality products and exceptional standards of service. These include cruises and holidays, insurance, personal finance, the Saga Magazine, and our membership programme, Possibilities.
