Research and reports
Business should be a force for good. Whether that means creating better experiences for our customers or a better company to work for, we’re learning and improving all the time. We’re recognised as an accredited B Corporation and are proud to be part of a growing community aiming to redefine success in business.
Not only do we want to improve the lives of our employees. We also want to create a better future through our charity partnerships and by being mindful of our environment (both at work and in a global context). Profitability is important, but we know that we have a huge responsibility to society too. Our success gives us the chance to make a bigger impact.
Everything we do comes down to our five core values – learning, empowerment, authenticity, pioneering, and simplicity. These will mean something unique to every person at Simply Business, but if you’re thinking about working here, give them some thought. They’re at the heart of our story.
Being a great place to work (with the awards to prove it) means we’re committed to creating great spaces for our employees. We have offices in London and Northampton, which are geared up for smart, flexible working and help us empower our people to do the best work they can.
This can mean using our team pods to focus on collectively solving complex problems, taking some time in our wellness room or relaxing with colleagues over a game of pool. Watch our virtual office tour to find out more.
What do you think about when you hear ‘insurance’? We’re far from that stereotype. We empower every one of our employees to make a difference, whatever their role, and you’ll be a key part of our continued growth.
Here are three reasons to join:
For us, the wellbeing and belonging of every SBer is paramount – you'll get access to counselling services, online therapy, and free access to our wellbeing app with tutorials, mindfulness activities, and sleep tools.
We also value your unique experiences as an individual. You'll be able to join one of our existing diversity and inclusion networks or start your own, and help us on our journey to becoming a more inclusive workplace.
And we take personal development seriously – after all, learning is one of our values. We'll support you on your path to your big dream – whether that's formal training (such as our management training programmes), e-learning, coaching, or on-the-job experience.
We've created a place for people to be curious, experience new things, and bring unique ideas to the table. We listen to our customers and innovate to launch new products and services that meet their needs – which is why we're on track to having one million customers by 2023.
Ever wanted to fly a drone with a guitar? Or build an app for charity? Whether you work in London or Northampton, you’ll have free rein to work on anything you want in our Hackathons. Form your team, pitch your idea and get hacking before presenting your results to the rest of the business. Check out our 2019 Hackathon recap to see one in action.
When it comes to working from home, we empower SBers with choice and flexibility so they can make the right decisions based on the needs of their roles – and we've been working this way since before the pandemic.
We know that being together in person can be the best way to get work done, which is why our offices have become ‘hubs’ that we expect our employees to visit every so often. That said, there’s no one-size-fits all solution, so all of our people and teams will be empowered to find what suits them best.
One of the best parts of working here is the ability to give something back. This can be anything from raising money for charity through our annual events, helping us raise awareness of the EAFA through our sponsorship of the team, helping us tackle gender diversity in tech, or using your time bank days to volunteer for a cause you believe in.

There’s all the serious (but important) stuff we call ‘core benefits'. On top of that, you can pick and choose from the more exciting perks – whether it’s a full gym membership, private health cover, help with childcare, or a fund to subsidise your wellbeing and development.
Here’s an idea of some of the main benefits you get when you work for Simply Business:
And from day one you can pick and mix from things like:
But there’s so much more to Simply Business than insurance and memberships. We also run cycle to work, childcare voucher, and season ticket loan schemes, and we have a handy online form to put in any training or conference requests.
Best of all, though, are the groups, clubs, and adventures that come with the Simply Business territory. Forget a simple Give As You Earn scheme (although we’ve got that too) – we trek the Sahara for charity, throw epic summer parties, and meet up for book groups, public speaking coaching, yoga, manicures, beer brewing, and lots, lots more.
At Simply Business, we've got an open culture around mental health matters. It's our aim to destigmatise mental ill health, prioritising our mental wellbeing in the process. We have a network of Mental Health First Aiders on hand, and a team of Mental Health Champions who challenge stigma and actively promote the wellbeing of SBers.
We've invested in tools and training to help you get the most out of your wellbeing. Working for us will mean you'll have access to:
Simply Business is committed to providing equality and opportunities for all employees and candidates considering a career with us. We offer a workplace where colleagues are treated with respect and dignity. We don’t (and won’t) discriminate either directly or indirectly on the grounds of race, colour, religion, belief, political opinion, disability, nationality, ethnic origin, sex, sexual orientation or relationship status at any stage of the hiring process or during the course of your employment.
