InsureTech Sector


In 2016 Charles Taylor (a specialist insurance professional services firm) embarked on a mission to create a brand new IT/Technology consulting business called InsureTech. This started with the purchase of FADATA (a leading insurance software house, providing predominately a claims/policy admin solution called INSIS) and continued with further acquisitions. They therefore needed to build a complete consulting team from ‘head of’ roles through to delivery teams, technology/infrastructure teams and alike.

Key Challenges:

  • Relatively unknown brand name
  • Strong focus on candidates with strong policy admin and/or claims background in relative short supply
  • Heavy focus on candidates with consultancy experience
  • New and unstructured business – resulting in process issues and alike
  • Heavy competition in the market


  • TPN quickly became the number one supplier to Charles Taylor InsureTech (within 3 months)
  • Successful placement of the majority of the key leadership team
  • Over 10 hires within 6 months into key strategic roles
  • Only supplier retained by new internal recruitment team brought in for 2017
  • TPN Talent Mapping recognised internally as a ground breaking solution and a key reason for successful hiring in 2016

TPN has been valuable to InsureTech as they have really understood the calibre of candidates we have been looking for. Their support has allowed the business achieve the perfect balance of IT skills and Insurance Business knowledge.
