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 are a commercial insurance company and we offer insurance across a broad range of specialisms including faith, charity, heritage, education and real estate.

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, nurturing an inclusive culture and providing a positive and engaging working environment.
We listen to our employees and take action on their feedback. We are delighted to have achieved 3-star accreditation, the highest standard of workplace engagement, through the Best Companies b-Heard employee engagement survey, recognising that Ecclesiastical Ireland is a ‘world class’ place to work.  

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 2016, the Group has contributed over £100m to good causes, making us the UK’s 3rd largest corporate donor.1

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.

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.

Diversity and Inclusion

We are a community made up of people with different backgrounds, abilities, perspectives, beliefs and interests. We want everyone in our Business to feel a genuine sense of belonging and to know that we are all valued and included.
Inclusion naturally generates diversity. Businesses that create and nurture inclusive cultures and respect for individual differences are more successful and sustainable.
Our inclusive culture is a source of great strength
It enables us to collaborate and innovate, reflect and connect with us customers and the communities we operate within. It helps us attract and retain the very best and most diverse range of colleagues. We want to celebrate it and will continue to challenge ourselves to help it grow.
Our approach goes beyond our Diversity and Inclusion Policy. We’ve coined the phrase ‘we all belong’ because it reinforces our belief that inclusion runs through everything we do, all of the time.
In simple terms, it’s about making everyone feel respected for who they are and valued for who they are and a valued part of our team.
