Simply Business is an equal opportunity employer. We’re committed to welcoming and helping employees grow within an inclusive & diverse culture. And that commitment starts with our interview process. 
Once you apply, your info will be reviewed in a committee with employees from different levels, teams, and experiences. We pride ourselves on fostering a sense of community, which is only made stronger by each individual at SB, so you’ll have the opportunity to meet a variety of people throughout the process.

Most of our first round interviews will take place over Zoom; however, further through the process there may be the opportunity/expectation to meet members of the team in-person. 
If it looks like you could be a good fit for the role, we’ll ask you to interview on Zoom first regardless – you’ll need WiFi and a laptop, or a 4G-enabled smartphone. If you don’t have access to either of these, or you need support with your application, get in touch with us at [email protected].
Please email us with any questions or if you want to pause your application for a bit – we’ll be happy to keep you updated on future opportunities like the one above.
