Recruiting for the Insurance Industry

Insurance Staffing Testimonials


Now that my interview process is complete, with a job offer in hand, I wanted to thank you for all of your help during this time.  From the outset, you explained everything about the position in which I was interested, and the background of the prospective employer. You were always available throughout the interviewing process.  Your perspectives, expertise, and advice were invaluable in guiding me through the entire process.

From application through job offer, your guidance was always appreciated and spot-on. 

If anyone ever asked, your name would be at the top of the list.

Scott informed me about a job opportunity and within 3 days I had an offer. Scott was very helpful and constantly kept in contact with me through out the whole process. Scott was easy to get a hold of and got back to me in a timely manner.

Dear Scott,

I wanted to take a second to thank you for your guidance with our insurance staffing needs. Your people have been well vetted and your matchmaking has been particularly successful for us. As getting the right people is of paramount importance for every organization, I am grateful for your candor and stewardship.

After working for the same insurance brokerage for the past 24 years, a company I thought I would retire with, I found myself in the position of seeking employment during the worst possible time in decades. I turned to the two of you for help in my time of trouble. You took the time to speak with me, asked me questions, answered my questions and offered guidance during this difficult time. Recognizing the difficulties of the situation and what I was going through as things were unraveling, you kept me focused and with your connections in the job market found a position for me in a relatively short amount of time. On behalf of myself and my family, I wanted to thank you both and would not hesitate recommending you to anyone in a position of seeking employment in the insurance industry.

Dear Scott,

Our specialized risk management consulting firm only hires professionals with strong analytical, technical, and communication skills. Through the years ARD Group has delivered with superior candidates while other head hunters have failed to the extent that we eliminated other firms because they wasted our time and delivered very little. In addition, we have worked together in several ways for you to make it easy for us with good information and almost every applicant we see from you have been solid prospects. We are a busy company and that is very important. Your fees have always been reasonable and when applicants have failed for one reason or another you have always been fair with the economics. It has been a pleasure with you and your staff. If anyone ever asked for a good head hunter, you are the only one we would recommend. Keep up the good work.
