About the employer

Clarke Jeffreys Insurance has been trusted to provide insurance solutions for businesses large and small for over 20 years in Herefordshire and beyond. CJ Insurance has never rested on its laurels; the business was founded by Jeff and Denise Clarke in 1993 in the spare bedroom of their home and rapidly grew, leading to Jeff taking their first office space, and quickly taking on 2 members of staff. Jeff’s son James joined the business in 2000 as a Personal Lines Handler. Due to the office location in Hereford, 2005 saw James receiving a significant amount of enquiries from ex-Special forces who were moving into the private security sector and struggling to find anyone who understood the type of specialised insurance that they needed. James and his wife Helen took over ownership of the business in 2013 and continue to run and grow the business. In 2023 CJ relocates to larger offices where they continue to look after existing and new client's insurance needs.
