Harrington Bates is a close-knit, independent staff absence insurance provider. We arrange high-quality cover and provide intelligent insurance solutions to UK education providers, and have done so for over 20 years. We are constantly growing within the staff absence insurance market and are always keen to hear from enthusiastic and ambitious applicants.

The company has developed a lot over the past few years, so much so that we have moved to brand new office in Cheshire, having outgrown our previous premises in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. We always actively look to promote from within and help our employees build lasting careers within a stable yet innovative industry.

As a business we invest in making sure you reach your full potential. You’ll start with a company induction, followed by comprehensive training on all aspects of your role. Then, alongside your manager, we’ll ensure you have a development plan in place to make sure you achieve your professional goals. We’ll then track your progress and make sure you’re enjoying your work through informal appraisals.

In return for working with us at Harrington Bates, you’ll receive the following benefits:

•    Company contribution pension scheme
•    Flexible working hours (department dependent)
•    Performance bonuses
•    Access to free occupational health checks
•    Personalised professional development plan
