About Us


Summit Personnel was established in 2017 after we decided to combine our 30 years plus of specialist recruitment; 27 of those within insurance recruitment; with the sole aim of delivering a consistently high level, consultative service to our clients and candidates alike which we felt we were unable to do working for a large business.

Having worked closely over the last several years covering the Northern market, we have extensive experience and contacts throughout the UK from large Insurers to small regional brokers. We have worked on high level retained assignments with some of the markets leading global insurance and claims businesses and have both been heavily involved in new insurance business start ups in terms of both recruitment and assisting in ensuring roles and salary packages are competitively placed in the market.  We are proud to say we have and continue to be the first call for our clients when they need assistance with insurance recruitment.

Our goal for Summit Personnel Ltd is simple, we want to deliver an honest, informed and consistent level of service to a high calibre selection of insurance businesses with whom we have forged strong and trust-oriented relationships over the course of our careers


Stacey Richards:

I have worked in specialist recruitment for 12  years and have spent the last 7 years as a specialist in insurance appointments at all levels predominantly across Yorkshire, the North East and Scotland.

My specialist areas include underwriting, business development and claims and I also have proven experience recruiting in niche areas such as compliance, IT and projects within the insurance arena.

I have a proven track record in insurance recruitment and more importantly, I enjoy building strong, long term relationships with both clients and candidates.  As such; I have a loyal base of insurance businesses who come to me for early support with all vacancies across their business.

I have also worked closely with a number of leading insurance businesses by providing salary guidance for both new and existing roles they recruit for and I have a proven track record of supporting candidates with interview guidance and support, ensuring they achieve their goals.


Robert Plant:

I have over 19 years insurance recruitment experience covering all areas of general insurance throughout the UK.   I have a loyal client base that I have built up over the years and I am able to attract the very best candidates in the market. 

I pride myself on being an expert within the claims arena but also have extensive knowledge of the regional Broking market.  In addition I have been successful in resourcing Underwriters and Business Development Managers at all levels as well as specialist appointments such as compliance and risk.
