As a boy he was with West Ham United, then came through Northampton Town's Centre of Excllence to make his debut in the Football League on 23 August 2008 as a late substitute in a goalless draw with Millwall. He had a spell on loan to Southern League Premier Division club Brackley Town as work experience in early 2008, and signed an 18-month professional contract with Northampton in January 2009.

In November 2009, Benjamin signed a one-month loan deal with Conference National club Eastbourne Borough. Benjamin played six games for Eastbourne Borough, five of which were in the Conference and one in the Sussex Senior Cup, before being recalled back to Northampton in December.

He was released by the club on 12 May 2010 along with five other players.

In August 2010, he joined Conference South side Ebbsfleet United. Benjamin left by mutual consent in September 2010 and switched to Boreham Wood, also of the Conference South.

Bejamin moved on to Billericay Town in October 2012. He joined Hendon of the Isthmian League Premier Division on a dual registration basis from Billericay Town the following month, but was never involved in a match. He signed on another dual registration deal in March 2013, with Lowestoft Town. During the spring he made 14 appearances in the league (scoring one goal against Wingate & Finchley) before ending the season featuring in the playoff final on 6 May 2013.

In June 2013, Benjamin joined St Neots Town who play in the Southern Football League Premier Division. Following the release from the club in September 2013, he re-signed for Billericay Town. In June 2014 he departed the club to join Farnborough, but had his contract terminated the following month after a handful of pre-season games, and was then captured by Grays Athletic. They released him in September 2014, and subsequently signed for Bury Town. In March 2015 he was transferred to Dulwich Hamlet. He dropped down to the Isthmian League Division One North to join Harlow Town in July 2015. After starting the 2016–17 season at Bishop's Stortford, he returned to Harlow Town on 18 August 2016.
