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 fourth largest in the world. It plays an essential part of the UK’s economic strength, contributing £45 billion worth of GDP and employing around 324,000 individuals across insurers themselves as well as auxiliary services such as brokers.

However, even 10 years on from the financial crisis in 2008, the insurance and financial services market continues to suffer from consumer trust issues despite the swathes of new regulations now in force. Technology issues such as TSB's internet banking upgrades in 2018, as well as high profile data breaches also plague the industry.

Having a real focus on customer outcomes and delivering consumer confidence in their proposition is vital to the survival and growth of any financial services business. We know how critical it is to have strong, experienced leaders who understands the massive challenges the industry continues to face. And we know it's not just about helping a business survive and grow, but also focusing on the right customer needs, creating and delivering value, and managing risks which will deliver commercial success.
