Eames Consulting Group

Eames specialises in the banking and financial services sectors, operating across the core disciplines of audit, risk, compliance, finance, actuarial, broking & underwriting, claims & operations, change & technology.

  • To better support their clients’ needs, and the demand for more agile staffing solutions, Eames launched a management consultancy in 2020. ECMS exclusively supports the financial services sector with project augmentation, project management and project advisory services.
  • Their approach is to adapt to each client’s own methodology, using an in-house designed framework. This innovative approach to consultancy within this space has seen the organisation drive revenues of more £5m across a number of clients in the insurance sector in the first full year of business.
  • Eames gave as an example of the group’s approach the case of a candidate for a senior underwriter role at a multinational insurer which was going through just prior to the first lockdown. The client’s head office made the decision to withdraw all active roles. When the client re-opened live roles in late 2020, the candidate was concerned about moving jobs and onboarding remotely. There was also a new hiring manager, to whom Eames had to re-market the candidate. Their consultative approach and expertise of the London insurance market, meant they were able to support both the client and candidate in their decision making, and were able to manage a smooth onboarding process, making what is a key hire for the organisation.
