"Recruitment in the insurance industry has become a serious problem. It’s so hard to get good quality staff as we are near full employment.

When I think of recruitment I automatically think of Lynda Barnes and 360 recruitment. They are top class professionals and they specialise in the Insurance Industry. They are great listeners and  fully understand my requirements before recommending a new staff member. When it comes to Insurance I always use and  recommend Lynda and her team."

“We’ve been working with 360 Search since Lynda set up the business 8 years ago. We find them thoroughly professional and very resourceful at finding us good quality candidates to match not only the professional qualifications and skills required for the roles but who will also fit seamlessly in with our company culture. Knowing that the 360 staff have a thorough knowledge of or first-hand experience in the insurance industry is a real plus for us.  We trust their expertise and would have no hesitation in recommending them."

Sarah is a great resource for any broker to have access to. She has great connections in the industry and always has access to a suitable candidate when you need one (and sometimes wen you don’t even know that you need one!)

Graham Weir

We had the benefit of working with Lynda in sourcing the most suitable candidates for our business at the highest level. Lynda has always taken the time to get a full understanding of our business and will do likewise for each of the opportunities as they present themselves. We know we can trust that she will match her extensive and well-respected knowledge of the wider insurance markets to constantly source the right candidates. I would have no hesitation in recommending 360 Search
