Research and reports
Simply Business insures small businesses and enables big dreams. Not just for our customers, but our people and communities too. With over 900,000 active insurance policies, we protect builders, bakers, landlords, and more than 1,000 other trades.
We harness cutting-edge data ability, believe in experimentation, and build our own technology to deliver better experiences for our customers and employees alike. This means we’re as much a technology company as one that sells insurance.
We build, we fail, we learn, we improve.
Our benefits let you balance life and work properly:
And we compensate you fairly:
We're a values-led business. Our people all have a part to play in building a culture that lives these values: learning, empowerment, authenticity, pioneering, and simplicity.
Every employee has choice and flexibility to work in a way that’s best for their job, their team and their life. But we know that being together in person is usually the best way to get work done, which is why we expect our employees to visit our hubs four times a month or more.
Our hubs in London and Northampton are geared up for smart, flexible working, empowering our people to do the best work they can. Use our team areas to focus on solving complex problems, take some time in our wellness room, or relax with colleagues over a game of pool.
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.
When it comes to working from home, we empower our people with choice and flexibility. This helps them balance the needs of their teams and roles with their personal lives (and we’ve been working this way since before the Covid-19 pandemic).
We expect our employees to visit our hubs four times a month or more, but we know that there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. We encourage our people to find the rhythm that suits them best.
At Simply Business, we enjoy growing and developing not just in our careers, but in our personal lives too. We want our people to reach their full potential, which means we can support you whether you want to do formal training (such as our management training programmes), e-learning, coaching, or get on-the-job experience.
One of the most effective ways for people to realise their big dream is to move into different roles across the business. Through regular self-reflections, we help our people explore all of their options.
For example, you might want to take on a secondment, or move into a managerial position. We also offer squiggly careers workshops for people who want to make lateral moves instead of climbing the ladder, plus you might move between teams too.
At Simply Business, we've got an open culture around mental health. 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 our people.
Tools and training help you get the most out of your wellbeing. Working for us will mean you'll have access to:
Mind has awarded us gold for workplace wellbeing for three years in a row. This means we’ve successfully embedded mental health into our daily policies and practices.
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.

Profitability is important, but we know that we have a huge responsibility to our communities too. Our success gives us the chance to make a bigger impact, with charity partnerships that help us create a better future.
Our charity partner is mental health charity Mind, whose mission is to improve the UK’s wellbeing.
Our mission is to make Simply Business synonymous with fairness, belonging, and inclusivity. We won’t be happy until we’ve created a truly inclusive culture. One where every employee, whatever their background, role, or location, feels comfortable being their authentic self at work. This will help us better serve our diverse range of customers, too.
We all have a part to play in building this new reality – learning more, doing more, and going further.
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.
