What We Do

Leslie James Associates (LJA) is a recruitment consultancy which specialises exclusively in the placement of experienced insurance broking personnel throughout the UK.

Our broking focus involves us extensively in the placement of Account Handlers, Account Executives/Client Directors, New Business Producers, Branch Directors, Teams etc. through to the placement of candidates at C-Suite level.

As well as dealing with candidates with a general commercial background, we are also involved in acting for candidates in many specialist areas including, for example, Professional Indemnity, Construction, Private Clients and Real Estate etc.

Our clients

Our client relationships have been established with many of the top employers in the insurance broking space, particularly top 100 UK brokers and we are an approved supplier to many of these brokers.

Our client contacts are predominantly at the level of CEO, MD and Senior Director so we are very close to the decision makers in our client businesses.


We handle many vacancies which are not publicly advertised, giving us exclusive access to a wide range of broking opportunities.

Our USPs

Knowledge – At Leslie James Associates, we pride ourselves on our very longstanding experience and knowledge of the insurance broking sector. It is only with this extensive knowledge that we have been able, over many years, to enjoy considerable success in matching the right candidates with the right jobs and vice versa. It is this success and earned reputation which sees our clients and candidates come back to us time and again.

We work in a market which is constantly changing and evolving. Mergers, acquisitions, restructures,  management changes, regulation and economic cycles are just a few of the factors which require our full attention on an ongoing basis. Without this, we would simply not adapt to the changes and needs brought about by these various transformations.

Credibility – Credibility is earned and it has only been by providing a service which truly and consistently meets the needs of both clients and candidates that we have earned our credibility.

At Leslie James, we focus on the supply of quality rather than quantity and we believe that it is this which safeguards our reputation and ensures our high client retention and extremely low candidate failure rates.

We have a proven track record of providing a personal, effective, accurate and knowledgeable service to candidates and clients in the insurance broking sector.
