The role of technology has increased in importance throughout the wider insurance sector spectrum. Because of a vast array of regulatory change, huge demand exists for personnel with the ability to apply their knowledge of the insurance business alongside proven technology skills to help firms successfully deliver change programmes.


The Hanover Search Group possesses a Technology practice that has leveraged years of expertise and relationships to build a strong presence within the sector. As a result we have been chosen to partner with firms from Life and General Insurance backgrounds, as well as consultancies and technology vendors servicing the industry.


We have helped the growth of the technology teams found in large globals and at boutique levels by sourcing the definitive talent they require in a competitive market place.
