About the Role:

Confluent is looking for a Benefits Program Manager to join our global Total Rewards team to manage benefits programs in EMEA. Reporting to the Senior Director of Global Benefits, Mobility and People M&A, you will be the day-to-day lead for all benefits throughout the region, including (where applicable) medical, dental, vision, life, disability, retirement savings and time away benefits. You’ll own vendor management and execution of benefits and be a key contributor in strategy discussions as we continue to expand benefits programs in 12+ countries.

This is an opportunity to build your strategy, partnering and leadership skills. We are a small but collaborative team offering an amazing amount of growth potential for the right candidate.

What You Will Do:

  • Act as the primary day-to-day lead for all EMEA benefits programs, working as the subject matter expert, focused on optimizing the employee experience and spend
  • Manage vendor relationships, measure performance and look for opportunities to improve vendor effectiveness
  • Implement and apply Time Away (vacation and leave) benefits across EMEA
  • Administer annual benefit renewals, vendor changes and new program implementations, working closely with procurement, HRIS, people operations and payroll teams
  • Draft and update employee and candidate facing benefits communications
  • Address escalated employee benefits questions in partnership with the people operations team, brokers and insurers
  • Proactively identify gaps in processes and make recommendations for improvements
  • Contribute to the development and execution of Confluent’s global wellbeing strategy
  • Support billing and budgeting needs in partnership with the Finance team
  • Help identify and meet benefits compliance requirements throughout the region

What You Will Bring:

  • 6+ years of experience in administering a range of EMEA benefits programs
  • Experience with benefits in several EMEA countries, including 6 or more of the UK, Spain, Germany, France, Italy, UAE, Sweden, Israel, Switzerland, Netherlands, Czechia, Denmark, Poland and Austria
  • Project and vendor management experience, including communications and change management
  • Ability to handle sensitive matters, maintaining privacy and confidentiality 
  • Drive to continuously learn and improve, looking for opportunities to simplify processes to achieve operational efficiency and optimize the employee experience
  • Attention to detail together with a focus on cross-regional consistency as we look to build out programs that are both locally competitive and globally relevant
  • Demonstrated ability to be highly organized, managing competing priorities to execute on multiple benefits in multiple countries
  • Ability to work effectively as a key member of a larger team, building relationships with internal (people business partners, people operations, HRIS, payroll, etc.) and external (brokers, insurers etc.) stakeholders

What Gives You an Edge:

  • Knowledge of Workday benefits and HRIS platforms
  • Comfort with Google Suite (Gmail, Docs, Sheets, Slides) applications
  • Experience with Workers’ compensation and leave management
  • High-growth tech public company exposure in a multinational context
