Colleges: Insurance Focus
Following three successive cost reduction projects with Gloucestershire College, Vice Principal Jeremy Williamson has given his view on the project.
“The benefits for Gloucestershire College in engaging ERAICM were so significant that we have engaged them for each of the last three years. In the first two years we even retained our incumbent broker, changing only in year three. On each occasion ERAICM were able to not only reduce our insurance premium costs but also facilitated important value add ons. One of the most significant of these is their ability to attract insurers to the table who have never previously been interested in the college sector to our knowledge.
We appreciated their impartial and independent focus which gave us not only peace of mind but also, we believe, enabled fair and robust negotiation with suppliers, both brokers and insurance companies. In particular, they demonstrated great expertise in presenting our high quality risk management to the insurance market which we are convinced has led to lower premiums. In addition, what has always pleasantly surprised us is their unobtrusive approach.
The time spent by us on each of the last three renewals has been minimal whilst the benefits have been very worthwhile indeed. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services.”
