An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Corporate Benefits professional to join a very successful and well respected practice.

  • Ensure adherence to compliance rules and procedures in the filing of CPD records.
  • Mentor and develop Junior employees
  • Help with business team management including running sales meetings and CPD sessions.

  • Wealth of knowledge across the employee benefits from a market and technical perspective
  • Track record of delivery against agreed income and client-development targets, in a client-facing corporate benefits consulting role
