“In the United States alone in the next 10 years, we’re going to have over 850,000 retirees in insurance and there’s going to be about 847,000 new jobs,” said ACORD’s CEO Bill Pieroni (pictured below), adding that, depending on how tech-savvy an insurer is, tech-based roles could reflect a lot of open positions within a company down the road.
With technology being a “future inevitability” for the industry, noted Pieroni, and the competition for tech talent staff considering the many companies vying for these recruits outside of insurance, it’s important for ACORD to focus in on this segment of talent and help insurance companies source both potential employees new to insurance as well as experienced hires who are looking to change jobs.
The career center portal is free for all ACORD members to use, alongside other benefits it offers insurance companies.
“There is no [other] portal globally dedicated to technology [roles] for insurance,” said Pieroni. “Employers can easily search for candidates and monitor their job listings.”
