Our Services

Executive Search

Retained search and selection assignments form the base of our service offering to our insurance clients and are what give rise to the Marketmaker network.

We have comprehensive experience of recruiting across the breadth of insurance ExCo’s and understand a variety of ownership models, which can influence strategic ambitions and cultural fit.

Our industry-specific focus means we are equally comfortable operating in the Claims function, Pricing & Underwriting, Actuarial, or other verticals.

If you would like to discuss a potential or live opening, please get in touch with Nick.

Market Mapping

Business leaders will occasionally find themselves in a situation where both the initial strategy and desired objectives are relatively clear, but there remains ambiguity around the crucial intelligence that will allow for the making of a sound business case.

Marketmaker’s mapping capability was designed to plug this gap, illuminating areas of the market in order to provide greater confidence in direction of travel and allowing business cases to be made more robustly and strategies to be validated.

Mapping work can be applied in a number of areas and we have supported clients in the mapping of talent, M&A targets, market intelligence, or even surveying key operators in the market around such things as Target Operating Model, new market entry, capacity/distribution arrangements, and proposition design.

In any case, each mapping assignment is bespoke and needs to be designed carefully in a way that will best provide the required intelligence, and thereby achieve the optimal solution for your strategy and for your customers.

Proposition Design

An all-too-often overlooked aspect of recruiting for a key position is the definition of a candidate proposition. No matter which business you are, it is always important to show respect to the target candidate pool and craft an attractive proposition that has them sit up and pay attention. After all, not everyone is active on the market.

Marketmaker enjoys consulting with clients and guiding them on how best to pitch their opportunity to top-drawer talent.

Career Consultancy

It is rarely the case that ambitious leaders are happy to maintain the status quo, but it can be a challenge to know where to start in conceiving and then identifying your next career move.

Marketmaker takes pleasure in using our insurance recruitment expertise to understand your personality and ambitions alongside your skills and experience, and then mapping out which markets and companies are best aligned to you.

Being dedicated exclusively to insurance allows us to offer informed opinions across all areas of the market, from digitally distributed personal lines to the complex, London Market specialty space.
