Welcome to Working Here.

Drive your future forward with a career of consequence.

Build your career with a firm that supports you, no matter what track you follow.

At Durham & Bates, you will influence key decisions.

Not everyone knows where they’re going when they first start their professional journey. That’s okay. When we’re hiring, we care more about the commitment, quality of thought, and discipline you bring to work every day, as well as the things that motivate you as a person. Do you want to work in the service of others? Do you enjoy solving complex challenges? Are you the type of person who likes to dig for more information? Are you comfortable working collaboratively? Do you think of yourself as an entrepreneur?

On average, team members have been with us for more than 10 years.

Together, we can build your career map as an employee-owner.

Durham & Bates has been employee owned since 1989, when we took things a step forward and formed an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP). Today, every associate shares in the ownership of the company — and ultimately, in our success.

Our model is a key part of what makes Durham & Bates a different kind of place to work. We’ve assembled a group of professionals who are truly exceptional in their specialties, and who collaborate in order to create unique, client-centered solutions. In fact, our consultative approach is distinct in the insurance market. We don’t just sell insurance products. We position ourselves as long-term, trusted advisors.
