Quick identification of a senior credit risk analyst for a global insurer, based in Europe

Case Study / JCW

Global Insurer


A global insurer was struggling to find a Senior Credit Risk Analyst for their group head office. They had had the position open for a while and received several profiles from other agencies that didn’t quite fit.

The solution

There were 2 main problems with the candidates that the client had seen so far – firstly their lack of product knowledge and secondly their technical experience, particularly in using VBA. Through discussions with the client, it had become clear that other agencies had been targeting purely insurance houses, when in reality taking someone from an asset manager would be better suited. We also helped incorporate an Excel/VBA test into the interview stages to ensure the candidates’ skills were suitable.


Within 72 hours we provided suitable profiles and booked in the preferred candidates in for Excel/VBA tests. After a further two stages the number choice was offered and hired. As a result of our work the Head of Credit Risk was so impressed that he used us exclusively going forward for future hires.

Client comment

“We were incredibly impressed with the speed and calibre throughout”.
