Aviva research points to “daunting” recruitment landscape for brokers

Ryan Birbeck Aviva

More brokers are recruiting, vacancies are taking longer to fill, and firms are paying more than expected for new hires.

That is the scale of the recruitment challenge for the broking industry according to the latest Aviva Broker Barometer data.

It found 94% of brokers are actively recruiting, an increase on last year, when 71% of brokers had a vacancy open. Nearly all regional brokers surveyed (98%) had a vacancy, followed by 94% of local brokers and 89% of national brokerages.

Our research yet again paints a challenging recruitment picture for brokers.Ryan Birbeck, broker and client development director, Aviva
