Support Analyst ( Insurance )- £35k - £45k
Our client, a leading specialist insurance software development company, is looking for an experienced Support Analyst to join their London team of market leading experts.
The main responsibilities of the role are as follows:
The system is used by brokers and underwriters in the London market and does a complex and significant job, so mistakes do happen. At that point, the user contacts the company’s support team for help.
The team already has two full-time Support Analysts and they wish to add a third. Crucially, the current team has limited experience of working in the London insurance market, and so they want to hire someone with that experience to provide balance.
The perfect candidate would have experience of supporting users of a system in the insurance world. That might be internal support at a broker or carrier. Alternatively, it might be at a supplier of systems to the market. In either case they need to already understand the cycle of a support call and the different types of request.
To start with, this role is about handling support requests. However, a candidate who would want to grow into a role managing the team would be perfect because the current staff are taking a technical track rather than a managerial one.

Compliance Officer – to £80,000
This is an extremely hands on role and the successful candidate will be responsible for advising the Directors on anything Compliance-related.

It has responsibility for the co-ordination and implementation of policies, procedures and business standards to ensure compliance with the financial regulator, commercial agreements (i.e. principal insurers delegated authority arrangements), legislation and the business model/framework.
The role is extremely wide, yet some of the duties will include:
Previous experience must have been gained in compliance / audit within an Insurance or similar financial services role with a working knowledge of the FCA Handbook, the Financial Services and Markets Act and other UK relevant legislation. Knowledge of Lloyd’s Market practices will be a distinct advantage.

Our client is a large independent broker who are aiming to grow the biggest network of Appointed Representatives across the UK.
Their proposition is for Insurance Professionals who have become disaffected with corporate life (for example on the back of numerous Mergers & Acquisitions) and who are keen to start their own Insurance Broking business. If this is something that you have considered but been put off of by the risk of making the leap from employment to self-employment, the costs of setting up your own brokerage, the rigours of obtaining FCA approvals, the burden of Compliance and the inability to get adequate levels of service from Insurers who may not be interested in small start-up brokerages – then these opportunities could provide the perfect solution. Our client will provide ‘back office’ support for Account Handling, Broking, Claims, Credit Control, Marketing etc, alongside looking after compliance needs and, critically, giving immediate access to top drawer service and remuneration from Insurers, thus making you competitive from Day One.
Many of their Appointed Representatives have eventually grown to a scale where they feel comfortable to obtain their own FCA approvals and to start trading as independent Insurance Brokers and a key part of their proposition is to help them to achieve their ambitions. Ideal candidates are typically Commercial Account Executives in the broking sector, or occasionally Insurer staff with the right technical background.
