A bit about the team

The wider Insurance division contains some of the most successful consultants and managers within the company, all ranging in seniority and background - this includes individuals who joined us as Associate Consultans and have gained multiple promotions.  The division enjoys an autonomous style of working, allowing consultants to pursue their interests and specialisms.

In 2017 we launched our European division which has successfully grown our footprint into continental Europe.  The European team currently consists of multi-lingual Consultants servicing our existing London Market clients as well as developing new regional relationships.   

The division is led by a hands-on and well-respected partner who has experience in hiring consultants from varying backgrounds and developing them into market specialists.  The team can offer the following:

  • 100+ years’ combined experience to leverage off
  • A prestigious list of clients include Lloyd’s Syndicates, international insurers, brokers and MGAs
  • A mature working environment- not KPI-heavy or a hard sales environment
  • A division boasting some of Eames’ most successful consultants
  • A number of accolades won including our High Achiever’s Club, Director’s Lunch, Manager of the Year and all-expense paid holidays

What will you be doing?

As an Associate Consultant, you will be expected to focus on candidate generation and client/candidate research for first 6 months. During that time we’d ensure you take part in our formal induction scheme run by our Learning & Development team which will provide you with a solid grounding in recruitment processes and practices. You will work on a specific team immersing yourself in that market with the chance to advertise vacancies, headhunt candidates and start developing your technical knowledge and confidence in a fast paced and dynamic working environment.

After 6 months we’d start slowly feeding in client contact and jobs from PSLs and key accounts with a view to promotion to a full consultant role within 12 months. During that time we’ll invest in you teaching business development techniques so you can move into a full 360 role as soon as possible. ECG is fortunate to have a number of prestigious accounts ensuring you have time to learn and gain experience of the full recruitment lifecycle before moving into a consultant role.
