What’s Hot in Insurance?

The more positive economic outlook has had a knock-on effect in the insurance market where increased activity has led to increased number of roles.  Whilst there is still consolidation in some areas there is a strong demand in particular for strong professionally qualified commercial underwriters and commercial account executives in the broker market.

Companies are reacting quicker to market changes and looking for key personnel to match the changing demands in the market place. As has been the trend in recent years the “in demand” candidates are those with MDI or ACII or working towards these qualifications.

Also an area of increase demand is for candidates with cross over skills such as Business Analysis and technical /product knowledge.

There is a slow return to salary increases but bonuses are on the return.
