A  CV from headline sponsor of Digital, GoCompare

Personal statement

The success of GoCompare lies with our people. They’re a driven, lively bunch with a real sense of purpose and we make it our business to actively support their growth and development.

We’ve worked hard to develop a company culture that’s uniquely ‘GoCompare’ and it’s something we’re immensely proud of. It’s our culture that underpins our success and we take it very seriously - even if we don’t always take ourselves quite so seriously.

GoCompare is made up of people who are collaborative, ambitious, and fun, and we’re constantly evolving and growing. If you’re a hard-worker who’s up for a challenge, you might just be the next GoCo-er.

Career History 2006 – 2009

GoCompare launches with a car insurance comparison service and six employees. The following year we launch our motorbike, van and home insurance comparison services and air our first ever TV advert. By 2009 we’ve become the first comparison website to compare over 100 different insurance providers.

2010 - 2012

We move to a bigger office to accommodate our now almost 100-strong team and hit a key target of one million insurance quotes in a month. By 2012, we’re delivering the equivalent of one quote per second across all of our products.

2013 - present

Kick-starting with another office move! This time we relocate to purpose-designed offices to accommodate our ever-expanding team and support future growth.

In late 2016 we demerge from esure Group, and list on the London Stock Exchange (LSE:GOCO) as an independent company in control of our own destiny.

Skip to 2017 and we’re focussed on streamlining processes, empowering people to apply their skills as effectively as possible, and looking for ways to harness new technology to make everything we do even quicker and slicker.
