Diversity and Culture at Ben

(...because it doesn't belong at the bottom of an ad!)

Our culture is ever-evolving and is defined by our people. We don’t hire clones, we hire individuals.

  • We celebrate diversity

  • We listen to our people

  • We work autonomously

    and...

  • We have fun!

We are organically growing a brilliantly diverse, inclusive and respectful bunch of people we are extremely proud of. This should go without saying but all applications are very much welcome. If you need any adjustments to support you with your application, just let us know by emailing jobs@thanksben.com.

Our Mission

The way companies reward their people today is broken - it's a rigid, one-size-fits-all approach that hasn't evolved to meet the demands of the modern workforce. How we work is changing, but compensation - salary, bonus, equity, benefits - has been stuck in the same place for decades. Ben is changing that, starting with employee benefits. Our mission is to make benefits and pay work for everyone, everywhere.

We have been featured in TechCrunch and Financial Times (to name a few) and we're super proud to be backed by some of Europe's leading VC funds including Atomico, Seedcamp, Cherry, and DN Capital and the people behind companies such as Indeed.com, Peakon, Personio, Wise, Workday, and GoCardless.

Your Mission

As our Senior Benefits Consultant, you'll have a unique opportunity to help build our Benefits Consulting function and could have huge individual impact working with our largest global clients. You'll also acting as an expert to the wider business including Sales, Customer Success, Onboarding, Partnerships, and Product.

You’ll be laying the foundations for benefits consulting within Ben’s growing marketplace, which we believe will be the major contributor to our bottom line in the years to come.

The Marketplace team's mission is to make it as easy as possible for clients to search, evaluate, and offer benefits to their employees.

To accomplish this objective the team is focused on two core activities:

  • Building partnerships with some of the world’s leading brokers, insurers, and non-regulated benefits providers

  • Using these partnerships to help clients design their benefits programme - including consulting on what to offer and how clients can get the most out of Ben’s platform

As a Benefits Consultant, you will be focused on the second activity using all the benefits in our marketplace to design programmes for our clients.

What you'll be doing...

  • Partner with Account Executives and Customer Success colleagues to design benefits schemes with Ben broker partners or using our marketplace of available products (insured & non-insured)

  • Develop a trusted advisor relationship with client contacts through effective communication and efficient, quality execution of projects

  • Develop program designs based on clients’ short and long-term objectives

  • Partner with Onboarding and Operations colleagues for scheme implementation within Ben’s software platform

  • Work with internal stakeholders (Product, Engineering, Operations) to communicate client needs and develop product and process solutions for efficient client service

  • Work with external partners & carriers to help drive projects related to benefits program service delivery

You should apply if you have...

  • A proven track record in benefits consulting

  • A very good understanding of the regulatory environment surrounding employee benefits with experience managing a compliant sales process

  • The ability to sell with confidence - you’ll have to hold your own during executive-level conversations

  • Natural relationship-building skills

  • A great network - from brokers to insurers, you have a trusted network that can help you navigate the world of employee benefits

  • An entrepreneurial drive with the ability to focus on what’s really important - you’ll have to decide where we focus our attention

Nice to haves

  • Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) or equivalent

  • Experience selling regulated products

  • Previously held the responsibility of setting targets, generating forecasts and reporting on ROI

  • Previous experience at a venture-backed insurance tech
