How IT Professionals Can Be A Perfect Insurance Match

In recent news, cyber-warfare is a top risk for the insurance industry to minimize. The article on the Top 10 Extreme Risks for the Insurance Industry includes cyber-warfare and major data compromising risk factors. What does this mean in terms of personnel changes within the property/casualty insurance field? IT professionals can prove to be of major value to insurance companies in this technological age.

IT professionals are continuously researching and staying at the forefront of information technology securities and strategies. With cyber-warfare being a top risk to the Insurance Industry in 2014, IT professionals are a priceless asset in the prevention and response of cyber-attacks.

The recent data breach of Target stores shows us that a security breach of financial and sensitive personal information does more damage than the cyber-attack itself. The hacker security attack caused Target’s 4th quarter profits to drop by a whopping 46%. As we can see, security breaches of this magnitude cause business to come to a screeching halt and financial losses of emergency proportion snowball until security response strategies are implemented. Better yet, cyber liability and breach protection/prevention is key and IT professionals are the key keepers.

Malicious hackers are using new techniques every day to crash government and private websites. The Wall Street Journal recently reported an international record-breaking cyber-attack just this past February and it has the IT world buzzing.

IT professionals learn from past attacks to help create heightened security with new strategies that thwart off the ever evolving malicious techniques cyber attackers are using. These are just a few of the reasons why insurance companies need highly trained and experienced cyber security professionals on their team.

We have access to highly trained IT professionals in our candidate pool that we can easily source to match you with the right person to fill this niche position. Having an IT professional on your product team will allow you to offer a more secure tech world for your clients. Let us know what you are looking for in an IT candidate and we will put our experience to work for you in sourcing the best qualified IT candidate for the job.

Thinking Outside The Box For Your Job Search

Picture 3Where can I source the right job for me? It’s a common question many people have when looking for a job or considering a career change.  Sometimes thinking beyond the scope of what you are used to can prove to be the answer you are seeking.  Of the industries that are succeeding and growing, insurance companies are near the top.

Within the insurance industry Technology and Agriculture are two of the fastest growing segments.  Did you know that insurance companies are seeking experienced agriculture team members to be experts on agriculture insurance? Were you aware that experienced technology skills can be of great value to an insurance company that provides cyber-security and other technology insurance products?  It’s a case of combining your expertise with a company’s needs, even if your skill set might not be insurance related.  From agri-business insurance to technology, skills from all ends of the spectrum can be of great benefit to the insurance sector.

CSG is here to review your resume and talk with you in detail about your experience and expertise.  Together, we may discover that you have those special-niche skills that companies are in dire need of.

It’s Not Who You Know. It’s Who We Know.

shutterstock_137793371If your organization lacks succession candidates or is struggling to identify up and coming talent, choosing the right recruiter is key. Coleman Search Group works closely with you to understand your organization and your immediate, mid-range and long range hiring objectives.

Having worked in and served the property/casualty industry for more than twenty-five years, we understand the talent gap you are facing. We can provide the right candidate(s) for you to interview, because sometimes it’s not who you know, it’s who we know.

We save you time. Our years of experience go to work for each of our clients. Before “networking” was a term in the 21st century, we’ve been doing just that, networking and relationship building. Establishing relationships with clients and candidates IS the key to providing you with a successful candidate pool, so you can select the most qualified person to better your company.

We’re in the age where succession planning is the key to future success of all companies. Maybe you’re not looking to fill a position in the immediate future, but your long term goals may indicate that a closer look at the talent pool now will better secure your company’s future for tomorrow.

We know who has the know-how. Our talent pool grows by the day because we’re constantly searching and networking to find talented, top-notch people. Let us know what you’re looking for and we’ll put our experience to work for you. We connect the right talent with the right company to produce results quickly.

We’re Different. We’re Flexible To Meet Your Needs.

shutterstock_160713830Is your company looking to fill a position, but haven’t been able to identify the perfect candidate for the job? Not every company is the same, and consequently, not all needs are the same; Coleman Search Group understands that. We invite you to learn more about how we can help your organization identify the right candidate for your position.

We excel at resolving those hard to fill positions like Agribusiness Underwriting, and with our customized fee structure, we will meet both your talent needs while remaining cost effective. We’re different than other firms in that our search fee is based on a proprietary process rather than historical fee structures that can be disproportionate to your position requirements.

We are also flexible by offering more than one type of search option to better suit your needs. If your organization is looking to attract exceptional executive level leaders while learning about passive talent available across the nation, a Retained Search is the right option. A Retained Search is an exclusive contractual search agreement resulting in a thorough, exhaustive national search process and top-notch candidate presentations.

Time is money, and if hiring high quality, senior level candidates quickly is paramount, an Exclusive Search is the right option. An excellent alternative to a retained search, an Exclusive Search is a customized, engaged search agreement utilizing a consistent, rigorous process resulting in talented candidate placement.

If you are seeking line managers, individual contributors and/or wish to maximize your potential candidate pool, a Priority Search is the right option. A Priority Search is a contingent search utilizing sound, time-tested processes resulting in qualified candidate placement.

More than 25 property casualty insurance companies, including some of the world’s largest, utilize us to fill needed positions because they know that a candidate from CSG is the best candidate for their job. We are here to help you achieve the results you need in your search.
