A note from our employee experience experts
Our ethos at Benefex is to seek to provide a stand-out employee experience for every single person who comes to work for us. We fundamentally believe that no one comes to work to do a bad job, and therefore want to ensure that we create an environment that allows you to give their best, every single day.
A career at Benefex is exciting, stimulating, and arguably not for the faint-hearted! We believe in giving all of our people the autonomy to do the right thing for our customers and deliver consistently excellent results. We work hard, and we work fast.

As part of our fantastic employee support team, you'll be on the front line, helping our customers' employees with their day-to-day queries over the phone or via email. We'll teach you all about employee benefits and how they work, until you're an expert! There's a lot of teamwork involved, but you'll also be trusted to meet your own personal goals, too.
Our Data Services team have an eagle-eye for detail and have wonderful analytical skills. You'll be processing incoming HR data, exporting, checking, and sending reports, and you'll be a fantastic problem-solver too.
As a Technical Specialist, you'll be configuring and coding! You'll need your troubleshooting hat on as you resolve data queries, and you'll work directly with OneHub - our market-leading technology - to match our customers' specifications across a whole range of projects, from benefits, to TRS, to pensions auto-enrolment and more.
Benefex has the friendliest finance team you'll probably ever meet! Depending on your specific role, you could be responsible for payroll (which makes you incredibly popular each month), invoice processing, bank reconciliation, accounts payable - you name it! You need a good mathematical and analytical brain to be in this team - and they're the current holders of the Benefex Quiz trophy, so some general knowledge comes in handy.
Our fantastic Consulting team anchor all the different departments who work in the background, and liaise with our fantastic customers to keep everyone updated on the scheme progress and customer feedback. But there's more - you'll also be designing employee benefits, updating the customers' sites and documentation, testing the platform for each client, and analysing data to help our customers make the best benefits decisions for their employees.
Our hard-working technical consulting team are the builders of our customers' benefits platforms. You'll be configuring our systems to meet customer-specific requirements, resolving any queries or changes that come up during the building process, and you'll need an eye for detail as you'll be reviewing incoming data as well.

The Benefex social life
We throw an amazing party
The Benefex Christmas Party is the highlight of our social calendar, and we've had it all - stilt walkers, Oscar nights, James Bond parties, ice sculpting, parties on warships, full-sized cutouts of Nicholas Cage - you name it, we've done it.
While we can't do the Christmas party in 2020, our amazing People team and Social Committee have got a few ideas up their sleeve to still make this festive season really special!
We keep work social, too
We socialise a lot outside of work, but we also love to enjoy ourselves in the office. With a foosball table, breakout areas, coffee machines and TVs, we've got a relaxed and fun vibe going on in our Southampton headquarters.
Throughout the lockdown periods, we've worked hard to make sure we've kept socialising as normal. From strictly non-work-related Friday catch-ups, to team quizzes, to lunch and learn sessions, we've tried as much as possible to replicate our casual, friendly company personality online.
We get competitive
We love a quiz night! We host two big quizzes every year - one offsite, and one in the office at Christmas. Sometimes it gets a little bit competitive, but the most important thing is the truly punderful team names.
Luckily, lockdown hasn't stopped us from getting quizzical, and our fantastic Social Committee has made sure we've all stayed as competitive as we ever were!
We incorporate charity
We like to give to charity as much as we possibly can, so we host bake sales, raffles, fun runs, and even penalty shootouts all to raise funds for fantastic causes.
We like to try all kinds of activities - sometimes it's a nice quiz in a pub, and sometimes we're rock-climbing, abseiling, kayaking or raft building. Not long after this photo was taken, we all ended up in the water...
Unfortunately, we haven't been able to get together so much in 2020, but we've got big plans for 2021!
While a lot of us love fun runs and archery, we also like a cosy evening in. If you're lucky enough to be based in our Southampton HQ, you'll be right in the heart of the social scene, with countless bars, restaurants and pubs nearby. Plus, we love to play pool.
We're good friends
Whenever you ask someone what their favourite thing about Benefex is, they'll say 'the people' almost every time. We arrange loads of different social activities during work and after, so you'll have a lot of opportunity to make great friends with your workmates.
We like to say 'thank you'
If you haven't yet looked at our amazing Recognition tech, you really should! But it's not just for our customers; we use this fabulous social media platform to acknowledge when our wonderful colleagues have gone above and beyond for us. Here's a sneak peek at the app - see how much we used it after just one year!
Did you know...
Here's what one of our alumni said about him: "Matt is constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in his industry. Rather than following industry leaders he has become one. Consistently pragmatic, Matt doesn’t wait for a solution to be made, instead he creates his own."See more reviews
A happy environment to be in
"There is a very genuine team atmosphere in the office and you never feel bad for asking questions. Everyone has a strong work ethic and being new in the office isn't bad because everyone is friendly."Find out more on Glassdoor
