A huge thank you to DW Simpson, the very first actuarial recruiter that worked for me. DWS has deep insights into the current actuarial job markets and possesses broad connections with the hiring managers. DWS is so effective and efficient that it only toke me two months to transform my career from a non-traditional actuarial role into the actuarial data science role I am in right now. Thank you again, DWS for directing me for a better career.


DW Simpson found me the position I was looking for. Diligence and industry expertise are just some of what distinguishes them as the premier actuarial placement firm.

DW Simpson is a partner. They listen and provide opportunities that match your goals. The value they add is a relationship built on experience and trust.


Having worked with DW Simpson at several stages in my actuarial career, I have found their savvy and professionalism to be unparalleled. Their experience and relationships with companies in the insurance industry, coupled with their ability to communicate effectively and align skill sets with company needs has resulted in exceptional job opportunities.


When I was looking for my first actuarial job I was aware I had a non-traditional actuarial resume, the route I took wasn’t really the norm. DW Simpson took the time to understand what I wanted to gain from my next position and provided me with opportunities that I qualified for and that allowed career growth. As I started job hunting again for my current role, I reached out to a member of the DW Simpson team and my experience was even better. The team made regular check-ins and made sure I was aware of any openings that fit my requirements. They have always been transparent and provided all available information on the positions offered. The supportive and encouraging team at DW Simpson is the reason I will always recommend the firm to my friends!

DW Simpson was great to work with during my job search! They were very accommodating and incredibly patient with my requirements for a new job and didn’t pressure me to pursue positions that didn’t fit all my needs. They were there from start to finish – from initially presenting me the position to formally accepting, it felt great having DW Simpson “in my corner”. Without DW Simpson’s help, I’d be stuck at my old company/job that I wasn’t completely satisfied with. I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out!


DW Simpson was instrumental in connecting me with a position perfectly fitting my lifestyle and career aspirations. The position is perfectly aligned with my strengths and has better advancement potential and significantly better compensation than my previous role. I wouldn’t have found the position without DW Simpson and I’m very grateful!


DW Simpson is unlike many recruiting firms I’ve encountered – their staff is honest, responsive, and there for the long haul. I’ve had the same DW Simpson recruiters since before I was credentialed! Highly recommended.


As an actuary, I get a lot of calls and emails from various actuarial recruiters. However, no matter how many times I’ve talked to them, I’ve been sticking with DW Simpson for several reasons. First, I feel like they know me and know what is best for me instead of asking me to jump from one position to another. I’ve gotten calls from recruiters who tell me that I’m a good fit to this new opportunity but that person does not even know what my background is. Second, before interviews, they always prep me and provide tips on how to engage with the interviewers. And after the interviews, they always follow up to see how the interviews went. However, I don’t get this kind of attention from other recruiters. Due to these reasons, I highly recommend DW Simpson if you are serious about changing jobs.


A small firm hired DW Simpson for their first-ever retained national search. DW Simpson quickly found a great match in me, and they worked with me and the firm to come to a compensation and onboarding arrangement that worked for both parties. I, and the firm, couldn’t be more pleased.


Patty Simpson and the rest of the great people at DW Simpson have been an important part of the success of the Actuarial Practice of Oliver Wyman, particularly our U.S. Property and Casualty practice. The keys to a successful actuarial consulting firm are smart actuaries who can be both innovative and communicate. DW has been able to identify those type of actuaries for us and then help us understand what it would take get them to join us – always in a professional manner.


DW Simpson knocked it out of the park for me. They provide a comprehensive package of everything you’ll need from start to finish. Highly recommend using their services.


I’ve worked with DW Simpson for years, on both sides of the hiring table. They both put a lot of care into their clients, they adapt to your feedback and are great partners, whether you are looking for a new opportunity, or are a looking to hire that elusive fit for your team!


Patty Simpson recently sourced a successful candidate for our firm and helped orchestrate the process very smoothly. Similarly, in all my interactions with various DW Simpson recruiters over the years, they have been professional, ethical, responsive and helpful in concluding an appropriate hire, without trying to force an inappropriate fit.
