Our culture is inclusive and diverse

We Embrace Individuality We value what's important to each and every employee. Whether that be providing access to cutting edge wellbeing support, or being part of one of our many diversity networks and communities. We also take personal development seriously - we're all about enabling big dreams.

We Trust Who We Hire We empower employees with choice and flexibility to make the right decisions based on the needs of their roles and we've been working this way long before Covid19.

There's no one-size-fits all solution when it comes to how often we get together in person, so all of our people and teams find the rhythm that suits them best when it comes to working from home or hub.

Our mission is to make our company synonymous with fairness, belonging and inclusivity. We won't be happy until we've created a truly inclusive culture - where every employee, whatever their background, role, or location, feels comfortable being their authentic self at work.

We all have a part to play - to learn more, to do more and to go further - in building this new reality that'll be befitting of the diversity of the customers we serve.
