We’re the best at what we do
At LifeSearch, we’ve won dozens of awards for company culture. We recently debuted Top 3 in the Sunday Times ‘Top 100 Companies to Work For’ list.
Work here and you’ll have every opportunity for personal and professional growth. There’s loads of perks, training when you want it, and a unique support system that’ll always have your back.
Pride in our culture
Our culture’s radical for financial services. For most industries actually. Every day, over 450 of us talk about love; loving our work and the good we do for families.
We’re led by five values that ensure everyone has a voice and the power to use it. That keep us evolving, changing, and improving. That build trust and honesty into everything we do.
When people start with LifeSearch they stay. Some ‘Searchers have been with us since day 1. We like to say we’re a family, and with several teams of mums and sons, brothers, sisters, dads and daughters, it’s true.
“I’m waiting for the shine to wear off.” We hear this a lot. Once you join, we hope you’ll say it too.
Training and support
We don’t see limits. Personal and professional growth are ways of life here and there’s a dedicated Learning & Development team to help.
LifeSearchers clocked up 14,000 hours in coaching sessions, 5,000 hours in leadership development and 750 hours in mental health training. We welcomed three dozen new-starts as nearly 100 LifeSearchers progressed in their careers.
Our five values
We like to think bigger than just ourselves and have ramped up efforts to make a positive impact on our communities and the planet.
From electric car leasing and Cycle to Work, to planting our own forest to offset business travel; we’re forever committed to local, sustainable and renewable producers and suppliers. We’re making great headway towards 100% green procurement and are the paperless champions of our industry.
LifeSearch have always put health and wellbeing first within our walls and have a longstanding commitment to charity, volunteer projects and greater good in our communities.
“I joined LifeSearch in 2016 and started out as an advisor in the Leeds Office. Since then I have progressed into leadership, had a Coaching role, been a Leadership & Development Specialist and most recently progressed to become one of our Senior Partnerships Managers. There really isn't anywhere quite like LifeSearch, you will never be a number in a seat and the career opportunities are endless!”
“I have been at LifeSearch for 15 years and absolutely love working here. I have been able to change my career in line with my personal life for example when I had my children I went from Full time Advising to part time support and now my children are older, back to Full time Advising. The leaders treat you as an individual, they genuinely care how you feel and constantly help you improve within your career to be the best that you can, whilst at the same time being extremely flexible in regards to childcare and personal circumstances. They are extremely forward thinking and are always looking for ways to improve as a company, which includes looking after their staff. I genuinely love coming into work and would never work anywhere else.”
“I joined in May 2020, during daunting time to start a new job but LifeSearch immediately showed themselves to be a supportive place to work and put all my worries at ease. Since starting, my job role has grown and changed so much, there always feels like there is great opportunity for growth and progression in your career here. LifeSearch is truly a place of work filled with friendly, passionate people.”
“I joined LifeSearch in 2013 as a Protection Adviser, becoming a Best Practice Champion in 2015 and then evolving into my current role as a Franchise Development Coach in 2017.
Working at LifeSearch is very rewarding, you’re always encouraged to be the best version of yourself and given many opportunities to keep learning & developing.
At LifeSearch we are not afraid of change, we embrace it and keep improving our advice to protect families in the right way.”
“I’ve worked at LifeSearch for the past 4 years after leaving retail behind - For me, it was the best decision I have made career wise.
Work life balance has become a real thing.
Over the last 4 years I have moved quickly on through all the client support job families, there is no end to the progression you can make. It is left to you take control and progress in our own time, with some great support from individual team leaders. I am currently on a leadership programme and there are many other learning platforms we searchers benefit from in working hours to help with this progression.
At LifeSearch there is always something going on you can get stuck in no matter what your role is, or how high up in the business you are.”
“Joining LifeSearch in 2015 has been my best career choice. I have been in three different departments in that time, learning, evolving and striking up great friendships as I go. Alongside my current role in support, where I’m a conduit between our clients and our insurers, I’m also part of the Fairness & Diversity squad. As it does, my life has served up challenges. In the last 18 months alone I’ve lost family members and become proud dad to an amazing little boy. LifeSearch have helped me celebrate the good … and had my back though the bad.”

See the elephants in the room? Welcome to the LifeSearch podcast series Searching for Elephants. It’s discussion and debate, interviews and insights, and real people’s real stories.
It’s an honest look at the talking points inside and outside our business, our industry and our lives. We’ve spent over 20 years making life insurance - or protection as we call it - easier and more transparent. In that time we’ve made protection advice more accessible to anyone who wants it. Now this award-winning advice (and more) is available to stream on Spotify, Apple, and YouTube.
Created and hosted by Angus Baigrie with regular appearances from LifeSearch CEO Tom, we invite you to come and meet the elephants.
