We are currently adding a Benefits Executive to our Chicago, IL team.  This role is responsible for providing high-quality analysis, recommendations, and service to clients and prospects as it relates to the development, implementation, and ongoing improvement of their employee benefit programs. This is an autonomous position and will also act as a mentor to more junior members of the team; therefore, prior experience working with self-funded clients in a similar role is needed.

You're probably wondering why you would want to make the move.  Here are some of the reasons:

  • Strong leadership - Our leaders are some of the best in the industry and are committed to the development of their team.
  • Growing Company - Cottingham & Butler is the 30th largest insurance brokerage firm in the United States and has been continuing to improve and grow each year. 
  • Innovative Solutions - In-house benefits services available, to include a TPA, case management team, health & wellness division, HR consulting services, and compliance services.

Qualified applicants will be proficient in Microsoft Word, Excel, and Access.  This position will deal with our more complex accounts, so prior experience with self-funded accounts is necessary.  BA degree also helpful.
