January Insurance Job Market Observations
Winter weather has not impacted the demand for insurance talent in the first quarter at this point. Interestingly enough the locations for this month have shifted away from the North East and gone into the warmer weather locations. Texas, Florida, & Georgia have the most insurance job openings this month. The Mid-West has replaced the North East with the most open insurance Jobs. The South East comes in second this month with Florida being the most active state.
The Commercial Property & Casualty Sector produced 75% of all of the new insurance jobs in the month’s survey. More specifically Underwriting, Brokerage Support, and Claims disciplines were the sectors with the most open jobs. The other areas where insurance companies are actively hiring people in the Actuary, Product Development, and Sales disciplines. Personal Lines, Life & Health, and Professional Liability had a few openings but none of these areas where up in terms of the numbers.
The demand for top talent and executive leadership talent in the Insurance Industry has been and continues to inspire and challenge me. 2015 has started out strong and we wanted to thank our clients for the trust and confidence you have placed in General Search & Recruitment.
All the best,
Mike McDonough & the GSR Team
