NEXT’s mission is to help entrepreneurs thrive. We’re doing that by building the only technology-led, full-stack provider of small business insurance in the industry, taking on the entire value chain and transforming the customer experience.

Simply put, wherever you find small businesses, you’ll find NEXT.

Since 2016, we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of small business customers across the United States get fast, customized and affordable coverage. We’re backed by industry leaders in insurance and tech, and we still have room to grow — that’s where you come in.

NEXT is looking for a Sr. HR Business Partner (People Partner) to join our team. This isn’t your traditional People Partner role! This is an opportunity to be the CHRO of our Insurance organization and drive business acceleration and create a change ready culture. With the support of Next’s amazing HR COE’s, this role will create and drive the People and Business strategy, and lead all facets of HR solutioning for the Insurance organization.

What You’ll Do:

  • Strategically partner with the Chief Insurance Officer and the leadership team across the Insurance organization.
  • Proactively identify and address critical organizational and people issues and remove barriers impeding the success of the business
  • Continually assess organizational design and effectiveness and lead the organization through the appropriate change journeys required for sustained success
  • Continue to build a high-performing organization through the development of top talent and supplementing the organization with key hires
  • Turn data into actionable insights that help shape the future of the organization
  • And most importantly, help Next and the Insurance organization win!

What We Need:

  • Previous experience in the Insurance sector is highly advantageous
  • The ability to win as part of a team
  • The combination of proactive strategic leadership and the ability to execute on ideas/plans
  • The ability to effectively influence as well as coach business leaders and employees
  • Solid project management experience
  • A strong technological savvy with great analytical abilities
  • A solid track record of expanding responsibilities as well as demonstrated success as a People Leader leading a complex organization

What you won’t do

  • This is not a ‘wait by the phone’ role in which you respond to employee relations issues or other business fires
  • This isn’t an advisory role. This is a roll up your sleeves and ‘get stuff done’ role.
  • You won’t be fighting a lot of bureaucracy or stifling processes
  • You won’t be able to find a corner of the organization and hide. We are a small and mighty organization and everyone is asked to contribute to our success.
