We are looking for a Group Benefits and Pension Advisor who thrives on challenge and enjoys being involved in many different things at once. You’re someone who rolls up their sleeves and truly cares about making a difference for people – after all, at AMA, we’re practically family.

Those pursuing their professional designation will also be considered. 
  • You’re a great communicator who is self-motivated, politically astute, hard-working, ethical, and always takes responsibility for your own actions. 
  • You have an inquisitive mind and are a pragmatic thinker. You tackle problems head on, make solid decisions and know when it’s appropriate to invite others in to collaborate on a situation. 
  • You work best in a culture where employees are treated like members of the family…because it makes sense. 
  • You’re a natural at building great relationships and providing savvy advice and value-added recommendations.
