Jo Frankham

Associate Director, Life Actuarial

​I am an associate director leading the life actuarial function working with life insurers, reinsurers and consulting firms, supporting candidates from graduates up to chief actuaries and chief risk officers.

I work closely with my clients to build a clear picture of their needs and wider business strategy. For my candidates, I take time to understand their career goals and motivations and then help bring them together.

Taking time to listen and really understand what both clients and candidates are looking for is key. In the actuarial market, there is always a shortage of talent, so I constantly look for ways to be creative in solving my clients’ recruitment challenges. I take an open, honest and consultative approach and will always prioritise quality over quantity.

I’ve been in the life actuarial recruitment industry since 2001 and love that there is always something to strive for. I can always learn more and get better at my job, no matter how long I’ve been doing it. I still get the same buzz and excitement today as I did 20 years ago!

Another side to my role is leading a team. I’m fully dedicated to enabling my team to be the best that they can be and supporting them in their development and career aspirations. I love working with people who are professional, positive, high energy, and resilient and who show a willingness and desire to learn to build a successful career in recruitment.

What does being an opportunity maker mean to you?

Bringing people together, making connections and enabling conversations to help businesses and individuals achieve their goals.

What Eames value resonates with you the most and why?

Personal Accountability. I think this is what makes a difference in building a good reputation in recruitment. In a niche market like ours, you have to take responsibility and ownership, not just delivering the good news; you need to have those tricky, honest conversations too.
