Company Profile

FourthLine is a specialist recruitment agency within the UK Insurance market using an “InDemand Talent” model to add value to and alleviate pressure points within our client’s businesses. With a strong presence in both Interim and Permanent Recruitment Markets we are able to offer businesses a fully combined recruitment approach and a true solution to helping organisations reach strategic future objectives.​

The Challenge

FourthLine were engaged by a leading General Insurer in order to make a key hire into the team of their newly appointed Head of Legal and Compliance liaison.  After advertising and unsuccessfully sourcing candidates through other channels they turned to FourthLine’s permanent team, having enlisted our services for regulatory recruitment previously.

The Role

Due to continued focus from the FCA around Financial Promotions, and the requirement for businesses to be compliant in all promotional material, the business required somebody with previous expertise in financial promotions in a financial services retail environment. In addition to the technical expertise, the role required somebody with the skills to build relationships with the business, deliver training to key stakeholders, and provide expertise in a fast paced environment.

The Solution

Using our detailed understanding of the industry and our knowledge of the client culture, FourthLine conducted a thorough search of the candidate pool, as well as extensive referral generation from our senior candidate network. This enabled us to reach unknown candidates in the market and identify a shortlist for interview within 48 hours. After navigating a difficult holiday period were able to arrange interviews and secure the right candidate for the role and the business.
