Our searches are for well run and well respected insurance companies that we have known and worked with for a number of years. We know finance for insurance companies, whether they are P&C, Life and Retirement, Health, or Reinsurance. We are sensitive to the differing needs of insurance companies whether they are U.S based, Bermuda based, or subsidiaries of international companies. We work hard to understand the particular situation and requirements that trigger a search, enabling us to target the talent that will best meet the client’s needs and that will best fit into the organization.
We have been selected because of our deep knowledge of the industry, extensive contacts within the industry at every level, reputation for integrity, and track record of finding and placing excellent people.
We use a multipoint approach, starting with a broad search of suitable candidates and narrowing down to those who best met the requirements and who would be the best fit for the organization. Resumes, experience, and career/life aspirations are evaluated and top candidates are vetted confidentially with trusted industry contacts. Multiple interviews of the top candidates are conducted, both with The ARGroup of Search Companies and with the client.
When the top candidate is identified for a role, we are actively involved with all negotiations, including salary, benefits, relocation issues, etc., to satisfy both client and candidate and to ensure there are no negative surprises post-hire. Offers are made and accepted, and mutually agreed upon start dates are set. Post-hire follow-up is conducted after a period of time to ensure that both client and candidate are doing well and were happy with the placement.
Throughout this process our goal has been and always will be to be the best in the business, so that we can continue to satisfy clients and candidates for many years to come. As the partnerships with our clients grow, we look for ways to support their growing and diverse needs. Our senior search and research teams are particularly adept at forecasting needs, strategizing, and recruiting excellent people who can meet those needs and enhance our clients’ businesses.
