From 2006: "The business was started almost 10 years ago in Northampton by current directors, Justin Carty and Roberto Milanesi, with a pounds 5,000 Prince's Trust grant, offering bicycle insurance. The company has developed its own bespoke computer systems." [1]

A report from September 2009 noted: "Telemarketing firm Jigsaw Insurance Marketing is to create 56 posts at its new contact centre in Bridgend. It said it would employ some of the 200 workers who were made redundant when Pure Insurance Marketing Ltd in the town went into liquidation in July. The Welsh Assembly Government has supported the project.

"Jigsaw Insurance Marketing Ltd initially opened a call centre in Bridgend in March 2006. But that business - known as Jigsaw Insurance Marketing (Wales) - was acquired from shareholders during a management buyout and renamed Pure Insurance in October 2006. Pure Insurance said all links with Jigsaw Insurance Marketing (Wales) were severed at the time. Now Jigsaw Insurance Marketing has announced it is to open another call centre in the town and was attracted to the area by the availability of a "trained and enthusiastic" workforce...

"Financial director Ian Mihill said: "As a company we are delighted to be able to help take people out of unemployment and are confident we will be able to recruit a first class professional team that can deliver a great customer service."...The new centre, called Jigsaw Insurance Marketing (Bridgend), specialises in sales campaigns and telemarketing for the financial services, telecoms and utility markets.

"Clients include TalkTalk, the consumer telephone business of the Carphone Warehouse Group, Sterling Insurance Group, Towergate, Energy Helpline, Affinion and Motorway Direct. "[1]

In February 2010 it was reported that: "Jigsaw Insurance Marketing opened a branch in the city last year and now wants to double its workforce to 60 staff. The business, which has its head office in Nottingham, is holding a recruitment event for the 30 new posts next week at Jobcentre Plus, in Charles Street, Leicester. Bosses said most of the firm's business comes from cold-calling people to sell broadband and telephone packages for Talk Talk.

"The company, which was formed more than 10 years ago, employs about 250 staff in Nottingham, with dozens more working at offices in Birmingham and Bridgend, Wales, where it also plans to increase numbers. Jigsaw's recruitment manager Amolak Bilan said: "We opened up an office in St Nicholas Place, near Hotel Maiyango, in August and we've got about 30 people there already... "Most of our business involves cold-calling people in their homes for Talk Talk, which is our biggest customer."..." [2]

"Pursuant to Section 98 of the Insolvency Act 1986 a meeting of creditors of the above-named Company will be held at 6 Castlebridge Office Village, Castle Marina Road, Nottingham, NG7 1TN, on 02 February 2012, at 3.30 pm. " [2]

In 2009 their web site notes: "Since Jigsaw first began operating from its Nottingham office in 2000, our success has been underpinned by four core values: simplicity… affordability… accessibility…service guarantees." [3] criticism
