Insurance and Financial Services Headhunters

According to the latest statistics from the Association of British Insurers, the UK insurance industry is the largest in Europe and the third largest in the world. It plays an essential part in the UK’s economic strength, managing investments of £1.8 trillion(equivalent to 25% of the UK’s total net worth)and employs around 315,000 individuals across insurers themselves as well as auxiliary services such as brokers.

However, following on from the financial crisis in 2008, the insurance and financial services market has seen and continues to see a wave of significant changes occurring. From swathes of new regulations, to transformational technology as well as a real focus on customer outcomes, the importance of understanding the impact of such issues and evolving to meet these challenges is vital to the survival and growth of any financial services business. Increased competition from the digital world, and in particular aggressive new entrants in the aggregator space, provides even further challenges.

We know how critical it is to have a strong, financial leader in a business who understands the massive change the industry is going through. And we know it's not just about helping a business survive and grow, but also focusing on the right customer needs as well as ensuring compliance with all relevant regulation.

We also have an in-depth understanding of what's required from a modern financial leader - it's not just about generating profit and cutting costs - it's about creating and delivering value, managing risks and having greater commercial awareness of the whole business.

We have successfully headhunted on a significant number of senior insurance and financial positions over the last 15 years, so have a thorough knowledge of the sector and what qualities are required for some of the most vital roles within your business. Roles recruited for include:

  • Chief Financial Officer
  • Chief Actuary
  • Head of Finance
  • Senior Actuarial Manager
