Award Winning Broker
We are proud of all our awards. Our most recent victories were at the 2015 British Insurance Awards where we won Commercial Lines Broking Initiative and Regional Insurance Broker of the year. Prior to that we won Community Broker of the Year at the British Insurance Awards 2014, were highly commended at the 2014 and 2013 UK Broker Awards, we've won awards for our Dealer Guard scheme and been recognised for our contribution to training and risk management.
Chartered Insurance Broker
We are a Chartered Insurance Broker, an accolade only awarded to elite insurance brokers who have to comply with stringent qualifying criteria, so you can be confident you will receive high levels of service.
We are a member of Brokerbility, one of the UK’s largest independent groups with a premium income of circa £400 million. Wilby Managing Director Richard Blackburn is one of the three Regional Chairs of the Brokerbility group – considered to be one of the most pro-active organisations within the insurance industry today.
Investors in People
We are accredited with the Investors In People Standard and have been for many years. By meeting the Investors in People Standard, you can be confident you're dealing with the very best in the world, when it comes to people management.
Our service is based on the key principle of professional people delivering innovative bespoke solutions for our clients. We place these values at the heart of everything we do. We understand the community plays a huge part in our success, that’s why we are committed to giving back.
Professional - Exceed Expectations
Professional excellence underlines everything we do. We always look to give clients the best advice and we don't cut corners simply to win business. Our commitment to professionalism is underlined by our Chartered Insurance Broker status and our success in numerous awards and our most recent win at the British Insurance Awards 2015 where we won 2 awards for our commercial lines broking initiative and regional broker of the year.
People - Every Employee Counts, Every Client Counts
Every business says that their staff are their greatest asset but at Wilby, we really believe it. That’s why we constantly invest in all types of learning and development and regularly promote people from within so that our staff are knowledgeable and engaged, therefore able to provide our customers with exceptional levels of service. We were the first Insurance Broker in Yorkshire to gain Investors in People status in 1997 and this has remained a priority for us, successfully retaining this at every reassessment since and gaining glowing feedback.
Innovative - Creating better, more efficient services
We understand that, to succeed we need to innovate continuously. We have a track record for developing unique solutions for clients which fill a gap in the market including two award winning initiatives in Bike Dealer (insurance for Motorcycle Dealers) and Dealer Guard (insurance for caravan & motorhome dealers) as well as non-insurance based initiatives such as a Loss Adjuster service and Risk Management consultancy.
Bespoke - Every Client is Unique
We are not under the illusion that any two businesses are the same, that’s why we’re committed to remaining independent which enables us to search the market to find the right solution for our clients’ insurance needs.
Giving Back - Community Focused & Charitable
We’re proud of our Yorkshire roots, having being formed in Calderdale since 1984 we have built strong links with the local community as well as national charities. We are really proud to support a number of local charities, sports teams and other worthy causes.
We are continually looking to recruit individuals who can help us to enhance our reputation and help us achieve our long-term goals.
