We’re Simply Business

We insure small businesses and enable big dreams – not just for our customers, but for our people and communities too. With over 750,000 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. This means we’re as much a technology company as one that sells insurance. We build, we fail, we learn, we improve. We’re a B Corp too, which recognises our strong track record of having a positive impact on people, society and the environment.  

If Simply Business sounds like the kind of place you’ll thrive, we’d love to hear from you.

Working here as we get back to normal

After working remotely for so long, we have a vision for how our people will work with each other now and in the future.

Every employee should have the choice and flexibility to work in a way that’s best for their job, their team, and their life.

We know that being together in person is usually the best way to get work done, which is why our offices will 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 find the rhythm that suits them best.

We need an Agile Project Manager to join us in London.

As a team we are responsible for delivering end to end, complex initiatives across our digital and business portfolios of work in line with SB's strategic objectives. Continuously simplifying, managing and guiding quality delivery across the organisation.

As an Agile Project Manager you'll work closely with our product and engineering teams to deliver our ambitious strategic goals.

You will be :

  • at the forefront of strategic delivery across Simply Business
  • self-motivated, action-oriented, and have a desire to lead teams through delivery
  • naturally organised with the ability to plan and align delivery
  • confident in managing ambiguity, complexity, simplifying challenges and driving delivery
  • a proactive and dynamic problem-solver
  • an excellent communicator who prioritises delivery through strong relationships and influence
  • commercially aware so you can drive best business outcomes

Responsibilities include:

  • building and nurturing strong and effective project stakeholder relationships
  • leading from the front by owning and taking responsibility to deliver end to end, cross-functional strategic initiatives and their expected outcomes
  • setting the team up for success by implementing effective agile (Scrum/Kanban) delivery best practises
  • meeting the business needs and priorities by providing delivery options, facilitating trade-off conversations and managing their expectations
  • focusing the team on delivering value with pace – organising the process of agreeing scope, breaking down work and estimating work to inform iterative planning
  • establishing the pace of delivery, with minimal disruption to the initiative and team, with proactive tracking, management and communication of roadmaps, dependencies, risks and issues
  • taking ownership of ambiguity in delivery, striving for clarity and quick decision making
  • facilitating collaborative meetings 
  • promoting confidence, predictability and transparency across your initiatives through effective management and communication of delivery metrics
  • working closely with internal operational teams to make sure initiatives are supported effectively and communicated to both our people and our customers
  • track the value of project deliverables against agreed targets and budgets

What we are looking for:

  • extensive Agile project delivery experience
  • proven track record of owning and delivering complex cross-functional initiatives
  • experience of project costs, budget and capacity management
  • preferably hold a recognised Agile delivery or project management qualification i.e. APM, PMI-ACP, Certified ScrumMaster
  • preferably experience of working in a fast paced insurance or fintech  environment
Our culture is inclusive and diverse

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 – where every employee, whatever their background, role, or location, feels comfortable being their authentic self at work.

We all have a part to play – to learn more, to do more and to go further – in building this new reality that’ll be befitting of the diversity of the customers we serve. At Simply Business, we’re all in.

What are the benefits?

At Simply Business, our benefits let you balance life and work properly:

flexible parental leave – you can choose to take shared parental leave, plus we offer full pay for the first six months of your maternity leave and four-week fully paid paternity leave, subject to meeting the qualifying criteria
remote working – more of us are currently working remotely than usual, but longer-term you can balance working remotely with working in the office, giving you the opportunity to connect with colleagues
mental health and wellbeing resources – we take your wellbeing seriously, giving you access to counselling (through our Employee Assistance Programme) as well as technology to support your mental health (through the Unmind app)
paid sabbatical – two weeks off when you’ve been here for five years and four weeks off when you’ve been here for 10 years
a dedicated learning platform – including a management and leadership programme – the platform lets you balance both work and life goals

And we compensate you fairly:

• a competitive salary that reflects your experience, our pay policy and the market we’re in from your first day
• the potential to earn an annual bonus based on business performance (those on commission-led roles will be rewarded monthly)
• we match what you put into your pension up to five per cent
• a health cash plan reimburses your everyday medical expenses (with the opportunity to increase the level of your plan in your flexible benefits)
• a generous holiday entitlement of 25 days annual leave, plus bank holidays
life assurance of four times of your basic salary

These values are important to us and our people
- Learning
- Empowerment
- Authenticity
- Pioneering
- Simplicity

These all 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.
