Insightful Team

Robert Hopkins – Director

After an early career as an accountant, Robert switched to finance recruitment in 1994 and has specialised within the London Insurance market since 2000. His achievements include the establishment of a successful specialist insurance division within a leading recruitment group and the founding of Insight Recruitment Solutions Ltd alongside Paul Wise in 2008. This he has achieved by the development of longstanding associations with many of the industry’s major players.

Robert has extensive market experience and knowledge which he has used to benefit Lloyd’s and company market underwriters, Lloyd’s brokers, P & I clubs and service providers. The basis of his approach is to develop long term trust based business relationships.

When not in the office Robert enjoys spending time with his family, has recently started cyling, is an obsessive skier and is known to see the odd Shakespeare play or two.


Paul Wise – Director

A graduate of Manchester University, Paul began his recruitment career in 1997 recruiting within both the IT and finance sectors at global recruitment firms. In 2002 he joined a specialist financial services recruiter, where alongside Robert Hopkins was integral in the development of their insurance finance division. In March 2008, Robert and Paul established Insight Recruitment Solutions Ltd as dedicated supplier of professional staffing to the London Insurance market.

Paul has recruited individuals at all levels and has built a vast network of industry contacts. He is sensitive to the people aspect of the London insurance market and places the utmost emphasis on confidentiality. Paul utilises his extensive market knowledge to establish long-term and mutually beneficial relationships.

With a growing family at home, Paul doesn’t get much time for himself! He enjoys music and plays the guitar, watches and plays football and runs to keep fit (and to keep up with the children!) as well as regularly competing in OCR races.


Tom Shorto – Divisional Manager

Tom started his recruitment career specialising within the London Insurance Market in 2004. In January 2010 he joined Insight to set up Insight’s Technical Insurance division which he has developed with great success.

Tom has built a strong network due to his personal approach. He is passionate about his candidates’ careers and is dedicated to offering relevant, knowledgeable and honest advice throughout the entire recruitment process.

Outside of work Tom played rugby throughout teens and early 20’s and joined the Saracens Academy. He now enjoys hiking, snowboarding and following numerous sports.


Tom Reid – Consultant

Tom joined Insight in October 2016 having graduated with a MA in History from Queen Mary University of London. With a personable and informative approach towards recruitment, he works closely within his candidates and is committed to understanding their requirements and career aspirations. As a consultant within Insight his focus is the development of candidates within the Finance and Accounting space.

Tom is an accomplished Bass player and alongside his music spends his time pursuing his interests in history, comedy, jazz and rugby. When he has the opportunity, he also enjoys visiting the countryside and returning to his family farm.


Jack Wilson – Consultant

Jack started his recruitment career in 2015 in the Construction industry before joining Insight at the beginning of 2017. He excels in maintaining excellent rapport with candidates, providing them with up to date insights and helping them find their best role in the industry which in turn gives clients a more productive and effective employee.

Whilst not at work Jack enjoys playing and coaching rugby. When he isn’t on the Rugby pitch you will find him with a rod and reel in hand looking for the catch of the day.
