International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans – Information/Research Specialist

The International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans has an immediate opening for a full-time Information/Research Specialist. As a member of the information specialist team, your duties will include: researching and responding to questions on employee benefit topics from individual association members using Information Center/Library and online resources, tracking legislation and regulations, selecting timely and relevant news items for a daily e-newsletter and analyzing and summarizing benefits information to post on our website. This role is instrumental in generating content to fulfill the organization’s mission to provide objective, solution-oriented education, research and information to the employee benefits community.


Three to four years of experience in a relevant special library/information center is required. The ideal candidate has a Master’s degree in library and information studies. Knowledge of employee benefits or human resources is a plus. The candidate should enjoy being a subject matter expert, be detail-oriented and have excellent communication (both written and verbal) skills. In addition, the position demands strong analytical, problem-solving and interpersonal skills. The job encompasses a variety of tasks, so it requires good organizational skills and the ability to prioritize tasks.


The 140 employees of the nonprofit International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans know a great place to work when they see it. Among the reasons hardly anyone ever leaves before retirement are outstanding benefits, creative and caring co-workers and an unwavering commitment to provide the best employee benefits education. The organization has been respected throughout the United States and Canada since it was founded in 1954. But the family-friendly workplace, tucked into a heavily wooded 15-acre campus in the Milwaukee suburb of Brookfield, is one of the Midwest’s best-kept secrets. We’re small enough for you to have ongoing, meaningful impact on the organization, but big enough to make international news.
