Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We're committed to creating a workplace where inclusivity is a culture, diversity is championed, and all colleagues can be their true selves.

A diverse, equitable and inclusive organisation

We firmly believe that different perspectives make us stronger. By recognising and celebrating those differences, we can attract the best people, provide them with the opportunity to develop their talents, and create a work environment in which everyone can thrive.

Diversity is key for us as individuals and as an organisation – without it, we wouldn't be able to reach our full potential.

Our people and recruitment

We’re an equal opportunities employer and we’re committed to recruiting, developing and retaining people who have the skills and experience we need to meet our strategic objectives.

We do this through a range of policies and programmes designed to support a diverse community in which talent is recognised and nurtured, and colleagues feel empowered to proactively guide their own development.

We continually review these policies and programmes and strengthen them further wherever we can.


We’re committed to providing a website that the widest possible audience of people can access, regardless of their ability or the technology available to them.

We’re continuously improving our website to make it more accessible and usable, in line with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No.2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

Stronger Together

We formed our employee resource group, Stronger Together, to keep inclusion and diversity at the forefront of our agenda.

Sponsored by our Executive Committee, and made up of around 50 colleagues from across the organisation, Stronger Together is an open forum run by colleagues, for colleagues. It provides a safe and supportive environment for us to discuss issues specifically relating to inclusion and diversity in the Bank.

Consisting of a core group and an extended network, Stronger Together supports the Bank’s wider inclusion and diversity strategy by making sure any activity has visibility and impact.

Stronger Together will also focus on its own activities to promote and encourage an ongoing conversation on inclusion within the organisation.

Inclusion is one of the Bank’s top priorities.
