Financial/Insurance Recruitment Agencies

The finance sector in the United Kingdom offers a wide range of services including insurance. The insurance sector calls for specific skills to protect clients from unforeseen financial losses. Consequently, the sector is worth well over 1.6 trillion most of which is held in investments. Finance/insurance recruitment agencies enlist for roles in customer service, claim handlers, brokers, management, and executive.

Although it is a traditional industry, more young people have ventured into the finance/insurance sector as the older generation goes into retirement and self-employment. In recent times, the industry become more automated and dynamic. Employees are expected to perform under highly stressful conditions

Recruitment firms in the finance/insurance sector are concentrated in Birmingham, London, Bristols, and Leeds. However, there are many insurance companies cropping up in smaller towns. This is due to the fact that more people now own property.

Remuneration rates

The finance/insurance sector is highly competitive. Employers require applicants to have a degree in a relevant subject. Some employers may provide opportunities for part-time study or on-the-job training for graduates who do not have a relevant degree. Remuneration rates are also very competitive. Average rates for entry-level roles are around £25,000. This is higher in metropolitan cities like London where it can double up to £45,000.

Entry-level roles in young insurance companies can pay between £15,000-£20,000. Management positions and executive can go upwards of £40,000.

Some employers offer benefits such as bonuses and commission.

This sector has changed over the last few years, with most functions becoming digitised. This has necessitated continuous learning for employees to increase their chances of career development. Employees are required to also have specialised skills particularly for higher level roles such as executive and accounting management.

Finance/insurance employment firms look for applicants who have great communication and negotiation skills. Applicants who have transferable skills also have better chances of employment.

In this job, you may be required to travel and work unsocial hours including weekends. Candidates who are versatile and adaptable can do well in this sector. The finance/insurance sector faces a lot of uncertainty and recruitment agencies report many opportunities available as a result of skills shortages.
