Sam Baker

Principal Consultant, Actuarial

I’m a principal consultant on the actuarial team in London. I specialise in actuarial and data science focusing primarily on personal and commercial lines, supporting the London and Lloyd’s market.

I work with a range of clients from small start-ups to some of the largest insurers in the UK. I also additionally support clients within the insurtech space.

Some key areas of my role include understanding my candidates' next career steps and meshing them with a role and organisation suited for their skill set. Taking a consultative approach to my work, I provide both my candidates and clients with market updates including the supply of talent, salary benchmarking and motivations for movements in the market.

Going that extra mile is what I enjoy. I take pride in my work in supporting businesses and my candidates' next career steps, but I’m also invested in building strong relationships outside of just a transactional approach and delivering a service that can add further support.

What does being an opportunity maker mean to you?

Adding value outside of the “transactional” side of the job. Whether that’s speaking to a candidate who’s not looking to move about, salary benchmarking, or helping other people at Eames.
