Market Update from Michigan’s Insurance Staffing Company

Increasing rates driven by insurance carriers’ high combined ratios and severe weather are also pushing demand for experienced insurance professionals. As the market continues to harden we are seeing growth in local insurance jobs. The demand for qualified independent agency staff is strong, and there are not enough candidates to meet the current demand.

The recession forced career changes. The reduction or elimination of training programs and college recruiting, out of state re-locations, and many other situations that have contributed to the labor crunch we are feeling locally. As an insurance employment agency, we are finding that it is particularly difficult to find personal lines salespeople and account managers. The demand is stronger now than it has been in some years. We are beginning to see demand in the commercial lines area as well. Michigan insurance jobs are there and we are working diligently to fill them!
