Belong & Thrive

I enjoy working in a dynamic environment, where we are all challenged as individuals daily to broaden our way of thinking and to enhance the value we deliver for our clients. Each day brings a new opportunity to excel, supported by colleagues and directors who boast unrivalled experience and expertise in this industry.

Each day working at Benchmark International poses new challenges. Challenges trying to match buyers with sellers, negotiating the right deal, and overcoming obstacles along the way. The team dynamics and collaboration across the company help us to overcome these challenges and benefit from being successful in what we do. It’s these challenges that make working here so rewarding.

Benchmark International is a welcoming environment that has allowed me to feel comfortable and confident in my working life - every day my colleagues and I are able to challenge one another to reach new heights. Working with such a team motivates me to push my limits.

Benchmark International is an exciting and dynamic place to work with the continual expansion of the brand worldwide. This brings with it many opportunities for employees at any level to grow and develop in their respective roles or transition into new ones.

Benchmark International is a fantastic company to work for, after 23 years of only ever working for one company previously, I can truly say that I have never felt happier in my job and the company I work for. Your work is a large part of your life, and you are only truly satisfied and feel accomplished if you believe in what you do and you are passionate day-to-day. We are focused, determined, passionate and love what we do. I feel so thankful for the opportunity to work in M&A and Benchmark International teaching me all that I know right now and having fantastic mentors. The market is always growing and the company too, and I feel honoured to be a part of it.

Benchmark give its employees the opportunity to progress and shape their future, giving great job satisfaction along the way. The atmosphere in the office is always buzzing and you can recognise that the company is continually investing, both in its employees and the business infrastructure, to be at the cutting edge of the industry.

Benchmark is a great company to work for, all employees are valued and everyone is treated equally and with respect. This also goes for the clients too, every member of the team works hard to ensure the best results. I have worked here for 5 years and it is the best career move I’ve made. Friendly colleagues are always on hand to help with any questions you may have. I have learnt so much about M&A and have been given the opportunity to progress and gain new skills. This has helped me to develop knowledge in all areas of the company.

Imogen Platt
Associate, Manchester

Benchmark International has not only developed me in terms of profession, it has also helped me to develop as a person. The growth I have seen in my confidence through the years with the help from management is life-changing. I never thought sales would be a career suited to me, but now I can’t imagine doing anything different.

Niamh Connell
Senior Analyst, Manchester

By working at Benchmark International, my working life involves working with talented professionals who are constantly upscaling to be the best they can be to deliver an excellent service to our clients. In addition, there are always plenty of opportunities to socialise outside of work which I think is one of the reasons why we have such a happy team with a real sense of togetherness. You spend a hefty chunk of your life at work so why shouldn’t it be both professionally and personally rewarding? We think so!
