Company Description

Founded in 2006, Benz Communications has a national reputation as a leading Human Resources and employee benefits communication consulting firm. Our work helps thousands of people make smart decisions about their health care, retirement and other benefits. We’re passionate about our work and the opportunity we have to make a big impact in the national dialog on health care reform and other topics that are critical to individuals’ health and well-being.

Job Description

Our communication consultants lead client engagements, from strategy and planning to execution of integrated communications campaigns. Our campaign work includes all aspects of digital and print communication, including building custom websites, creating personalized print materials, video, social media and everything in between.

This is the key role to our success and our clients’ success—understanding what our clients are trying to accomplish and creating the strategy and individual deliverables that form an effective marketing campaign. We’re looking for the most exceptional, most talented, most passionate people out there.


Our ideal candidate has a journalism or writing background and at least 3-5 years of employee benefits communications consulting experience at a Fortune 500 company, large HR consulting firm, benefits administrator or health plan.

You firmly believe that any good campaign is built on a solid strategy. You have the technical expertise to explain any nuance of a benefits plan. You have the creative communications and marketing expertise to get people to pay attention to that nuance. You understand how large organizations manage benefits and how to meet the needs of an over-stretched and under-pressure client. You’re inspired by the potential for employee communication to have a truly remarkable role in transforming people, our companies and our country and the world.
