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 800,000 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.
