What next for the Insurance Industry in 2017?
by Heat Recruitment
The Insurance Industry in 2017 is faced with plenty of opportunities, challenges and changes over the next 12 months. Many of these revolve around businesses taking advantage of InsurTech and Artificial Intelligence, and ensuring that business models are fit for growth. Furthermore, there is also the BIG question about what will happen post Brexit!
The Insurance Industry is one of the most influential and important parts of the UK economy. Therefore, it is encouraging when so many of our Clients have been in touch to discuss their growth and expansion plans for 2017 and beyond. Most are keen to ensure they deliver the best service possible in a very competitive market to their clients and customers.
In order to facilitate such growth, we have seen a shift in the market with many of our Clients looking to bring in entry level staff or those with less than 2 years’ experience into the industry. This has meant that training and development has been thrust to the forefront of the 2017 business strategy. Many candidates are now looking for roles with companies where they can gain CII qualifications and push their knowledge of niche insurances forward.
That said, the market for experienced hires continues to remain strong and where the candidate pool is stretched those seasoned professionals entering the job market are able to choose between a whole range of opportunities.
It is a great time to be a part of the insurance industry where long term career prospects, a good salary, plenty of career progression and personal development are all on offer. It is a competitive industry with plenty of challenges but with fantastic rewards for those prepared to go above and beyond for their clients, customers and employer.
