A unique institution. A unique experience.
For over 320 years we have been at the heart of the UK economy – working to maintain monetary and financial stability for the good of the people. Whether it’s setting interest rates or issuing banknotes, regulating the financial sector or devising economic policy, our work touches the lives of everyone in the UK. If you want to see its impact, just look around you.
This makes the work we do (and that you could be involved in) fascinatingly complex and almost always high profile. Our decisions make tomorrow’s headlines. We influence changes that affect millions, and shape the entire financial sector. And throughout our history, we have responded positively to the new challenges we’ve faced. Right now, we’re changing quicker than ever before.
Embracing diversity. Enabling greatness.
We’re pioneers. Pioneers of smarter banking. Pioneers of creative thinking. But above all, pioneers of inclusivity. With our Women in the Bank network, we aim to inspire and enable diversity. From supporting women in leading fulfilling and productive careers to helping parents explore their work/life balance, we believe that by helping all our employees succeed, we, as a central bank, will succeed too.
As a part of this ethos, we have worked hard to build an inclusive workplace. We’ve held many events to support our objectives, including flexible working panel events, and joint events with the Mental Health Network, Carers Network and Parents Network. One of our most popular events was our skills-based session on vocal effectiveness held last year. We have continuously strived for better. And still now, we are constantly looking for ways to improve. Discover how we’re developing an inclusive workplace and building a culture where everyone can be their whole selves – helping people to feel at home, whilst producing their best work.
Being inspired. Being innovative.
Working in an agile, transparent, innovative and keenly intellectual environment, our people are inspired to look further for fresh ideas. This makes us a hub of dynamic thinking in every area – from economic research to technology. All across the Bank, expertise is shared and teams work together to deliver. So, whichever programme you join, whichever part of the Bank you work in, be prepared to get involved and be a valued part of our team. It’s the best way for you to make a contribution that counts – and the best way to develop your own career.
