Price comparison website doubles its team

Price comparison website Compare My Move is currently undergoing a recruitment drive in a bid to accelerate the growth of its products and services.

The Cardiff-based company is looking to double the size of its internal team and has already created a network of 250 vetted professionals to help customers find the best property quotes.

Named one of the fastest growing firms in Wales, Compare My Move said it will employ more digital and sales professionals to help grow its product offering across the UK.

Last year, the tech firm generated £1 million of turnover for the first time and is looking to achieve a growth rate of 40 per cent in 2018. Its main aim is to develop a nationwide brand.

“Without a doubt, this is a really exciting time for the company and we look forward to growing our already
fantastic team along with the services we offer” said co-founder and Director Dave Sayce.

New additions to the firm include backend developer Pete Waters, digital designer Rozian Azaden, sales executive Craig Thompson, PR executive Adele MacGregor and content writer Martha Lott.

Marc Benger, director of Compare My Move, explained that the firm is investing heavily in its marketing efforts to ensure that its services reach consumers further afield.

“Understanding the importance of digital marketing has meant that our digital marketing team makes up 50% of our workforce and is always growing,” he said.

As a start-up, it’s been working with Jobs Growth Wales to attract new talent. The latter is a Welsh Government-run scheme that offers paid work job opportunities to young people.

“We are delighted to take on another candidate from Jobs Growth Wales and look forward to growing our business in what has become an excellent location for digital companies and start-ups,” added Benger.

Steve Morrison, who manages the scheme, said: “Jobs Growth Wales is a fantastic opportunity for 16-24 year olds to be employed in a field they are passionate about to start their career.”
