The best at what we do...

We’ve won more awards than anyone else in our industry. These include gongs for our vibe, the feeling of our business, our learning programmes and personal growth opportunities.

We’re hugely proud to have been awarded a 3* ‘Best Company’ award,  and to have claimed 3rd place in the 'Sunday Times Top 100 Companies to Work For' 2019.

Pride in our culture

Our culture is radical for financial services. For most industries in fact.

We talk a lot about family. We talk a lot about love. Loving the work we do. Loving the good we do for clients. Working together and feeling close like a family.

Our culture statement and five values guide the way. Everything we say and do ties into those.

We avoid hierarchies. We’re a democracy where everyone has a voice and we want them to be heard.

Almost every new LifeSearcher says something like ‘I didn’t know places like this existed’ or ‘I’m waiting for the shine to wear off’. We want you to say those things too when you join us too!

Our five values


Training and support

We reckon everyone can be awesome. Our value of #excellence means personal growth is just a way of life here.

84 LifeSearchers progressed their career last year in one way or another.

Our Learning & Development team are award winners so you’ll be in more than capable hands.

“I joined LifeSearch in 2016 and started out as an advisor in the Leeds Office, since then I have progressed to a leadership role, had a Coaches role and also had the brilliant experience of spending 3 months at our Cape Town office. There really isn’t anywhere quite like LifeSearch; the career opportunities are endless!”

Tom's story

“I joined LifeSearch at the beginning of 2018 as an Adviser and I haven’t looked back since. LifeSearch gave me a clear pathway on how to progress and be successful, along with a great company culture to work in. Being an Adviser is not like most jobs, we are doing something that truly matters by protecting families and their future, and it’s a great feeling knowing you are helping people.”

Nick's story

“I joined LifeSearch in 2013 and never looked back! After a great induction and a very supportive team around me, I obtained Senior status within 12 months and now after 5 years I’m leading my own team. For me LifeSearch is more than a place to work, it's a family. I’ve not worked anywhere before that cares so much about its customers and employees. So much so that I got my mum and brother a job here too!”

Lucy's story

“I have been part of the LifeSearch family for 5 years now. I started as an adviser and I have since progressed to be a Learning and Development Specialist. LifeSearch have always supported me when I felt my career would take a different path and rather than discouraging me they did everything possible to help. This is genuinely the only company that I have ever worked for where the company values are truly part of everyone’s DNA.”
