We invest in things that matter

We value and celebrate the diversity of our teams across all our locations and business functions so that everyone feels respected and can realise their full potential.

Building an inclusive culture is vital to our future

When we say we promote diversity and an inclusive culture, we mean it. Our Employee Resource Groups (ERG) are pivotal to deliver our diversity and inclusions strategy. They include:

  • SC Pride: LGBT+ Allies
  • Gender Equality
  • Generations
  • People with disabilities and carers
  • Origins, nationalities and ethnicities

Providing equal opportunities for all

We promote equality in the workplace for all employees and applicants irrespective of their particular characteristics, including but not limited to: Race; colour; nationality; national or ethnic origins; gender; parental status; marital or civil partner status; sexual orientation; gender identity, expression or reassignment; HIV or AIDS status; employment status; flexibility of working arrangements; disability; age; religion; or belief.

It’s the Bank’s policy to comply with all country, state and local laws that protect the rights of individuals from discrimination and govern employment practices across all the regions in which we operate.

We want all applicants to feel able to perform at their best throughout the hiring process and we’ll support you with any reasonable adjustments you need.
