Leading Welsh Comparison Website Invests in Women in Leadership

Published on 19/07/2016

Comparison website and insurance broker ActiveQuote.com is investing in its female employees by partnering with equality charity Chwarae Teg.

The Cardiff-based business, which is the UK’s leading health and protection insurance comparison website, is putting six female members of staff through Chwarae Teg’s Agile Nation 2 programme. 



Agile Nation 2 has been developed to help improve the position of women in the workforce across a range of priority sectors in Wales, including Financial and Professional Services. It is ideally suited to women who are looking to gain their first managerial or supervisory position.

Chwarae Teg, whose vision is a Wales where women achieve and prosper, is delivering the programme, which is funded by the European Social Fund and Welsh Government.

Employees at ActiveQuote.com will join the 2,207 women and 500 businesses that the programme will support up to September 2017.

As well as progressing through a range of enhanced learning modules, and a bespoke career action plan, the ActiveQuote.com employees will gain an accredited qualification through the globally recognised Institute of Leadership & Management (ILM). 

Gemma Williams, HR & Learning Manager at ActiveQuote, said the structured approach to development appealed to the business as it builds skills, confidence and knowledge that can be immediately applied to the workplace to the benefit of both colleagues and the business.

She added: “We’re passionate about developing our whole team, enabling them to flourish in a variety of roles. Investing in our female employees is key to our strategy so we have committed and engaged employees at every level of our organisation.

“We’re thrilled to be working closely with our friends at Chwarae Teg on this invaluable programme.”

Joy Kent, chief executive of Chwarae Teg, said:

“Our vision is for a Wales where women achieve and prosper. Agile Nation 2 works with women to help them identify, develop and make the most of their strengths and talents while supporting them to gain the confidence and skills to be the best they can be in their career.

“We are delighted that ActiveQuote.com has chosen to partner with us and we wish their employees well as they start on their improvement journey.”

The Agile Nation 2 Programme is available to women in organisations across Wales. For more information visit: http://www.agilenation2.org.uk/.

A great service from the initial call, to finalising the agreement. I would highly recommend to my family and friends.

Proactive, efficient, and offered me insurance I need. I would say half price I would end up paying if I did it by myself. Many thanks.

Excellent service. Explained everything in detail and really helped to find the right insurance best suited to my needs - which wasn't necessarily the most expensive.

Good value and the advisor was very helpful and recommended the best policy for my grandson. I would definitely use this service again and recommend to others.
