Staffing Trends within Insurance Broking

We have been observing a surge of movement amongst Assistant Account Executives and Account Executives in the Broker space.

There are currently a high volume of Assistant Account Executive vacancies, predominantly due to internal promotion, meaning there is fierce competition for the comparatively smaller talent pool of AAE candidates available. As a result, employers may need to make concessions regarding what their preferred candidate looks like. They may also need to be prepared to increase the salary budget available and accept that the recruitment process may take longer.

In terms of the Account Executive space, I am working with a number of quality AEs actively looking for their next career step. The majority of these candidates are leaving businesses as their contribution is not acknowledged and they aren’t given clear progression pathways. Due to this, many of our candidates are seeking specific traits in their next employer: a culture of high performance where results are measured, recognised and ideally rewarded, but also a business that has the capacity to offer training and development.

We are deeply passionate about helping genuinely aspirational candidates realise their career goals within Insurance Broking, and we seek to make considered, strategic introductions where both parties benefit.

Whether you would like to discuss strategy around your business’s talent management and acquisition plan, or you are seeking an employer with closely aligned values, call us on 03 9946 7300 or email support@lawsondelaney.com.au for a confidential discussion.
