When analysing the volumes as a function of all vacancies being posted, we see the variance as being between 1.5-4.5%, where November 2018 especially registered a peak in activity for the past two years.

Within the insurance sector, Aviva were the largest recruiters, with volumes up 16%.

Property Law Sector – Report

Property Law Sector – Report

Within the banks, we see activity in 2017 holding steady through the year and only dipping in Q4, where it then picked up again in 2018, but has been in decline as the year progressed, with Q4 2018 at a 2 year low. In terms of the legal vacancies within the banks we see a similar pattern, where recruitment activity ended up being in decline in 2018 also, mirroring the trend seen in the wider corporate governance roles.

When analysing the recruitment for other professional non specialist insurance roles, this is more extreme, in that we see that nearly two thirds of such generalist vacancies within Insurance now sit outside the capital.
