Childhood friends Oliver Castle, James Wase-Rogers and Nick Godson spotted a gap in the market when they founded their insurance-sector recruitment firm seven years ago. Serving everything from blue-chip companies to niche Lloyd’s of London firms, they place mid-to-senior-level candidates in accounting, actuarial, risk, compliance, legal and change-management positions. With offices in London, Manchester and Dublin, the company now has its eye on America and Asia as its next target markets. Sales grew 78% a year from £1.2m in 2005 to £7m in 2008.
