Are you forward thinking? Are you looking to make a difference and be part of a high performing team? Maybe it’s time to build your career with Advocate Insurance Group!

Advocate is recognized as one of Waterloo Region’s most prominent insurance brokers. Our President, Doug Heaman, not only provides leadership to our team but has also made a significant contribution to the broader insurance industry, serving as President of the Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario (IBAO) in 2016.

Our office is located at the Deer Ridge Centre in Kitchener. This places us in a vibrant neighbourhood with many coffee shops, restaurants as well as a lovely residential area and Settlers Park for lunchtime walks.

We enjoy a modern office environment. From the gas fireplace in our reception, to our training room, to our comfortable staff room… it is a pleasure to work in such a beautiful, bright office.

A vibrant and diverse culture… We have a unique culture at Advocate and we’re very proud of it! Many companies talk about their values but their actions don’t always align with the words. At Advocate, we have a strong connection to our core values.

Respect, dignity, collaboration… these are all traits we value and embrace. We are looking for team members who not only demonstrate solid technical expertise and business acumen but also demonstrate they are:

  • Selfless – Our team makes time to help each other. We’re all in this together and we work towards a common goal. We leave egos at home and collaboratively search for the best ideas for the company and our clients. We are selfless in sharing of information.
  • Curious – Seek to learn how we can work together to advance the company and serve our clients even better. Curious to find out how they can contribute and make the right decisions even when it seems hard or controversial. Everyone on our team has a voice and is expected to speak up if they see actions inconsistent with our values. Honesty is also about admitting when you’ve made a mistake, so together we can find resolution.
  • Honest – We want to work with people who have the courage to live by their values and make a difference.

We provide an attractive package for our team that includes competitive compensation, bonus opportunities, flexible time off program, benefits package and RRSP contributions. We support our team’s skill development with coaching and training opportunities so you can be proud of your expertise. We want you to excel and know that you’re making a difference every day.

“The first reason I love working here is “the people.” I work with some lovely individuals who sincerely care about each other. I work with individuals who are smart, professional and care about customer service. They’re also a bunch of funny people who like a good laugh. It’s a good balance of work and “play” in the workplace and I appreciate that we are empowered to create a fun and interesting office. I appreciate management and the team’s recognition of my hard work. I love all the “perks” at Advocate, i.e. birthdays off, Starbuck’s treats, lovely dinners, family outings and our amazing Christmas party. These things do not go unnoticed and they are sincerely appreciated by me and my family.”
