Insurance Sector Report – 2020 in Review


As we entered 2020, nobody could predict a pandemic that put a massive strain on healthcare systems and sent tremors throughout the global economy. For insurers — who put simply, guarantee payments to policyholders for uncertain future events — it has proven a testing period.

Outside London, hiring levels fell by 30.1%; the capital recorded 17.8% fewer vacancies year-on-year. In terms of specialist vacancies, insurance and actuarial roles fell 16.8% in the capital, and 35.8% regionally — with the quarter-on-quarter data mirroring wider trends.
