Sam Crayk

Partner & Associate Director, Claims & Underwriting Operations

I am the Partner and Associate Director of the claims, operations, and regional teams at Eames Consulting in the UK. I manage a highly successful team who supports clients and candidates across syndicates, company market insurers, MGA’s, brokers, and Insurtechs, UK wide.

I started my career in 2012 and since then, have gained an extensive network, built long-standing relationships, and developed expansive market knowledge. I’m able to partner with both my candidates and clients to provide a consultative and transparent approach, ensuring a high-quality service.

Aiming to connect with exceptional talent and provide solutions for my client's business objectives is key. I act as an advisory and intermediary to both parties, with a relationship built on honesty.

For my team, I aim to provide a platform for success. I strive to build a market-leading team with a world-class reputation. Working alongside individuals with drive, ambition, and who want to become subject matter experts in their field is what drives me.

What Eames value resonates with you the most and why?

Professional Expertise. I think to really add value to the market we need to have strong technical knowledge and be specialised to build a successful network and reputation.

What is it about recruitment that has kept you in the industry?

I love the fast-paced nature of the work and enjoy being a subject matter expert in my field.
