Join us


We create work that helps people – hundreds of thousands of them each year – make big decisions that change and improve their lives. We believe in change for the better. If you share this belief, and are eager to find your own unique way of making it happen, we’d love to hear from you.

Our values

These shape what we do and how we do it.


We’re natural explorers

We’re interested in the world around us. We ask questions and we challenge. And it leads to the kind of solutions that get people thinking. Nosey about new stuff, we love digging deep to find fresh ideas and better ways of working. When we find something with the potential to be incredible, we dive right in.


We add colour

We bring things to life. As a group of bright, creative, intelligent people, our unique character and personality has real vibrancy, energy and drive. Adding a splash of imagination here and a dab of positivity there, our warmth, our differences and our strengths combine to create a rich blend of down-to-earth, free-thinking people. This makes us more than just interesting – it makes us unstoppable.


We give a damn

About each other, so we help out, pitch in, pick brains, share ideas, and work together beautifully. About our clients, so we never give them work we’re not proud to call our own. And about what we do, so we make sure it’s always as amazing as it could possibly be. We care. And it’s why our clients care about working with us.


Our ways of working

We have a people-centred culture, flexible working arrangements, internal coaching and some of the best talent in the industry. In other words, we have everything you need to do your very best work and achieve your potential.

Our office locations are Manchester and London. For all of our roles we offer remote working with the need to be able to join us in Manchester or London for collaborative working and team days on a regular basis, and occasional visits to our various client sites. Please let us know your preferred working arrangements when you apply.


Mental health and wellbeing

We foster an honest, open, understanding and supportive environment for everyone here. Anyone experiencing poor mental health can speak up, knowing that they’ll be heard. They’ll be helped too, with everything from action plans and workplace adjustments to ongoing support and guidance from mental health first aiders. It’s all part of helping people stay well, healthy, and focused on doing the work they care so much about.


Diversity and inclusion

We believe that a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace makes us a more relevant and more resilient company. We welcome people from all backgrounds, ethnicities, cultures, and experiences. SMRS is an equal opportunity employer.

  • Life insurance
