    About IPS Search

    IPS Search is the Retained Executive Search practice of IPS Group Limited and is focused on the Global Insurance and Financial Services industries. With offices in UK, USA, Europe and Asia, we provide a consultative and customizable approach to the identification, recruitment, assessment, and recommendation of executive talent for insurance and financial services organizations. The ability to truly partner with a client in a creative and flexible manner allows for long term relationships following successful engagements where the best executive talent is recruited to meet the needs of our clients’ current and future business challenges and opportunities.

    IPS Group Ltd, our parent, was founded to provide professional recruitment services to the London insurance markets, and was the first specialized recruiting enterprise focused solely on insurance and financial services in the UK. Established in 1969, IPS is the leading specialist insurance recruitment consultancy in the UK with multiple locations globally where it enjoys considerable brand recognition. Following an MBO from Manpower, Inc. (NYSE.MAN) in 1990 IPS has expanded and now has eight offices globally including London, Chicago, Zurich, Hong Kong and Shanghai.

    IPS has grown organically and through acquisition over its history, but has remained focused on providing recruitment solutions across the spectrum of insurance and financial services sectors on behalf of its clientele throughout Europe, Asia, and the United States. Privately owned, IPS enjoys the ability to respond nimbly to client needs without external stock holder pressures, and with broad employee ownership brings the competitive advantages of stability and flexibility leading to long term client relationships.

    average years of employment


    • Andrew and his team have identified some very rewarding positions for me over the years. His knowledge of the market is excellent and he is able to match applicants to roles very effectively ensuring that the role in question is truly suitable for them. That is a real attribute for a recruitment agency and I would have the utmost confidence in IPS if I were to utilise them again.

    • I have used Christopher for several years now and have always found him to be very professional and considered in his approach. His desire to chase down opportunities and ensure regular updates are provided is really refreshing. I wouldn’t hesitate to utilise the services of Christopher again and would heartily recommend him.

    • Grace was very active from the beginning to the end and very quick responding to all the queries via email and phone. The whole process was transparent, communication was clear, timely and accurate. I cannot thank Grace enough for her full support on landing my current role. Positive experience overall.

    • Cannot thank Mark enough for placing me at Marsh. Without his involvement – I’d never have been given the opportunity to move my career up the next rung of the ladder. Mark kept in constant contact, took the time to get to know me and really helped me make the right move for me in the end. Genuine nice guy and a credit to his profession. Would highly recommend Mark to anyone.

    • I would also like to thank you for your professionalism and genuine support throughout the entire process. I will definitely refer you to my friends and colleagues in the field of insurance who seek great job opportunities. My experience working with you has been very positive and I am sure other people will be thrilled to benefit from such a recruitment experience.
