In this month’s report co-produced by Vacancysoft and Oliver James Associates we focus on vacancies for Underwriters and compare those with the demand from the wider Insurance sector. This report analyses more than a thousand vacancies for underwriters from a total of 15,543 new openings which were announced by 128 Insurance companies in England and Wales. Where were the geographical hotspots in terms of Underwriter roles? Which companies had the best growth in the number of openings for Underwriters 12-month period on 12-month period? And which saw the largest falls? Are larger or smaller firms where one finds growth in demand? Were there proportionately more new openings for senior staff or were companies looking for more junior employees? The answers to all those questions and more are in this report.
