it only really makes uniquely quailfied about a few things:

1) knowledge of what an FSA does (this is limited to what you know and what you have worked on). If you are a health FSA you may or may not know much about investments.
2) Your ability to judge candidates strengths and weaknesses and provide advice to the actuarial background
3) Your ability to place potential candidates more effectively because you understand positions and people better

Still like the above posters, I don't think this really separates you that much.

Honestly, the networking between people and companies is the really hard part IMO.

Could it be done part time, like a side thing?

You can start by looking into your company policies on "finder's fees." Then go find people to fill open positions. You can do this on your own.

I have seen it done on a part-time basis. Not sure how successful the people were, but you wouldn't be the first.

I like DTNF's advice.

It's a good way to find out if you're good at it. And no harm done if you aren't.

Isn't that a conflict of interest?

Are you talking about employee referral bonus? My company has a pretty generous referral bonus policy. I have referred someone in the past and got the bonus once.

Which was basically the primary motivation of creating this thread

Probably want a few more under your belt before you make it a more time-consuming hobby.

It would be cooler to go from actuarial recruiter to a main character in a pretty great cable tv show.

No idea if you can go from actuary -> actuarial recruiter -> cable tv show. That would be even greater.
