The global insurance industry has faced enormous disruption over the past decade, brought on by economic shifts, direct-to-consumer distribution, and widespread digital transformation, providing ample executive job opportunities for strong leaders with financial backgrounds and a solid appreciation of risk.
The Association of Executive Search and Leadership Consultants has executive recruiters and insurance headhunters around the world specializing in the recruitment of insurance executives. AESC member insurance headhunters recruit for insurance executive positions including General and Financial Management, Board of Directors, Marketing, Analysts, Underwriters, Appraisers, Claims, Human Resources, Business Development, Sales, Legal and IT.
Insurance headhunters are looking to fill positions in the areas of medical services and health insurance. The insurance industry has also expanded into other financial services such as securities and mutual funds. According to the US Department of Labor Statistics, while corporate downsizing and new technology pose threats to executive insurance jobs, the changing demographics and the retirement of the baby boom generation is affording new opportunities.
The cities with the most executive insurance headhunters offering the most opportunities for insurance executive-level jobs include: Vancouver, New York, London, Frankfurt, Toronto, Sydney, Tokyo, Atlanta, Hong Kong, Chicago, Buenos Aires and Paris.
