Careers at Ecclesiastical

In the world of financial services, Ecclesiastical treads a different path. Many businesses say they are different but Ecclesiastical really is. We believe it is possible to do business differently whilst building a powerful movement for good.

What we do

We insure a variety of well-known heritage buildings, churches, charities and not-for-profit organisations. In addition to specialist insurance, we provide financial products and services for individuals and organisations with offices in Gloucester, London, Birmingham and Manchester.

How we do it

We are proud to foster an open and responsible culture and have made substantial progress in a number of areas that support our employees such as developing talent at all levels, encouraging diversity and providing a positive and engaging working environment.

Why we are different

We are proud to be part of the Benefact Group – a charity-owned, international family of financial services companies that exist to donate profits to good causes. We’re built on the idea that better business, can better lives. Since 2014, the Group has contributed £200m to good causes, making us the UK’s 3rd largest corporate donor.1 The video below shows some of the good we have achieved through the Movement for Good Awards.

Flexible working

We believe creating an environment which enables people to be at their best is a key way to build a successful and sustainable business. That’s why we’re embracing flexibility. We’re a member of the Association of British Insurer’s ‘Making Flexible Work’ campaign and we’ve launched future flexible working principles which have been shared across our Group.

Our future working vision

  • We see flexibility as a broad opportunity to work how, when and where we agree is most effective for getting our jobs done and delivering outstanding customer service.
  • We trust and support each other, taking responsibility for our own work and how we work with others.
  • We have a number of work settings available to us and together we can choose the right mix for us, our roles, our teams and business needs.
  • We value vibrant, social office spaces which provide us with flexible, collaborative and healthy places to work.
  • We embrace technology, enabling us to work more flexibly, always think ‘digital by default’ and find better ways to work.
  • We balance our work and wellbeing, taking responsibility for managing all aspects of our lives and we’re proud to know each other better.

Future Working is for everyone. What it looks like will be different for everyone. And it will continue to evolve in the future.
