About DW Simpson
DW Simpson specializes in the placement of Actuaries and related Analytics professionals. We work on an international basis and at all levels of experience, from actuarial Student to Fellow. This encompasses Actuaries with expertise in Life, Health, Pension, Property & Casualty and, increasingly, non- traditional areas such as Risk Management, Catastrophe Modeling, Predictive Modeling, Financial Modeling and Analytics. We are the largest of the firms who exclusively place Actuaries and our objective is to be the foremost resource for actuarial talent globally.
Since its beginning in 1989, DW Simpson has:
- Established and maintained a working relationship with most firms that employ Actuaries.
- Demonstrated a commitment to the actuarial community that is for the long-term, not the short-term.
- Provided candidates with information on career opportunities as well as industry-specific employment and compensation trends so that they can maintain up-to-date market knowledge and consider various career options.
- Provided qualified candidates to our client companies.
- Kept in daily contact with the actuarial community so our clients have access to a wide spectrum of candidates available for their positions, rather than having to solely rely on individuals generated through advertising responses, unsolicited resumes or networking.
DW Simpson believes that, by being highly specialized, we are able to maintain thorough and current knowledge of the actuarial field and other related analytics professions in the insurance industry and, thereby, provide the best service to candidates and clients alike.
All of our recruiters have substantial knowledge and expertise in actuarial recruiting and are positioned to facilitate the recruitment process with the utmost efficiency. At all levels, DW Simpson recruiters work diligently to further both candidates’ and clients’ goals and do so in a friendly, forthright and professional manner. We are relied upon for our depth of knowledge and ability to perform in all economic cycles, and are trusted for our integrity and track record of creativity and service. DW Simpson conducts both retained and contingent searches for our clients.
What Sets Us Apart
Our size is our strength, our approach is our leverage, and our success is our result.
Size matters: As the largest dedicated actuarial search firm, DW Simpson provides clients with unparalleled and complete coverage of the candidate market in an expedient manner. Each of our 14 recruitment teams stays in continued contact with all of its assigned Actuaries to know their backgrounds, how their careers are evolving and who is appropriate for our clients’ openings. Each individual recruiter with DW Simpson has, on average, 10 years of experience in actuarial search. Moreover, our international capabilities provide clients global reach with focused local market knowledge.
Approach matters: Our recruiters understand that clients and candidates are busy professionals with limited time to deal with peripheral duties outside of their core obligations. That’s why the DW Simpson approach is, and has been for over two decades, direct, amiable, knowledgeable and sensitive to the needs of clients and candidates alike. DW Simpson is not a “hard-sell” organization; however, our recruiters are equipped with the market and industry knowledge to sell a candidate on why a client’s particular role is appropriate for consideration. Additionally, our in- depth knowledge of our candidate base allows us to sell clients on aspects of candidates beyond the resume.
Success matters: DW Simpson has grown to be the largest actuarial recruitment firm in the world not only because of its size and approach, but, equally important, because of its results over the years. For example, in the past three years alone, DW Simpson has placed over 900 Actuaries at all levels, from C-Suite roles to Students, and in all actuarial disciplines throughout the globe. We, too, are constantly evolving as recruiters and industry knowledge leaders, always with an eye to be more successful for our clients and candidates.
