Gender Diversity

Being able to attract, develop and retain talent is key to the success of our business.

We are proud signatory to HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter, through which we have formally committed to addressing the gender imbalance in financial services. As one of the first signatories we have made a commitment of 35% female representation across our management roles by 2021.

We already have a number of activities in place to support our ongoing commitment to gender equality, including; unconscious bias awareness, our new employer brand campaign, our family-friendly policies and the launch of a dedicated women’s forum.

Our commitment to gender diversity is led from the top, with our Claims and Operations Director, Adrian Furness, championing this important initiative.
