HL is a friendly, agile company where anyone can make a difference and contribute their ideas.
We recognise that our ongoing success is strongly linked to the contribution of our colleagues and believe that everyone has the capability to succeed in anything they do. To support our colleagues on that journey, we provide learning and development to help team members to perform at their best.
HL offers a wide range of employee benefits, including, but not limited to: a ground-breaking menopause support programme, family-friendly policies plus flexible and hybrid working practices. Our HQ is located in the heart of Bristol, with no shortage of things to do in the area, for individuals and families alike. It’s also the perfect place for exploring and what the area has to offer!
As well as being an Age Inclusive accredited employer, HL is also a Top 100 Stonewall employer and has a range of employee networks, including Gender Diversity, LGBTQ+, Cultural, Wellbeing and Disability & Chronic Conditions, which provide support and networking opportunities for employees. We have dedicated wellbeing, multi-faith and expressing rooms within our Bristol office and host a number of social and networking events across various colleague populations.
At Hargreaves Lansdown we are committed to building an inclusive and diverse workforce, because we believe it will lead to better outcomes for clients, colleagues and our business and will support our sustainable growth. An important aspect of this is hiring more, promoting more and losing less women. Whilst we have made some great progress in moving towards gender parity at Board and Executive Committee level in recent years, we recognise that we have more to do in order to increase female representation throughout our business.
Some of the ways that we are helping make this happen are:
We recognise that what gets measured gets done so we are proud signatories of the Women in Finance Charter and have set representation targets for women at both senior and mid levels of our organisation. Since signing the Charter, we have seen year on year progress in the percentage of women at senior management level at HL and have seen how data, transparency and public commitments drive accountability. We produce quarterly dashboards to help our senior leaders understand how we are tracking against our targets and what is driving that change so we can do more of what’s working and address barriers when we find them.
We continue to work closely with hiring managers to ensure their recruitment practices are as inclusive as possible. We strive for gender balanced shortlists for roles and partner with recruitment agencies that can support our goals.
Our colleague networks include our Women in Tech Network and Gender Diversity Network. These networks have been instrumental in helping engage and educate colleagues at HL around the importance of gender equality and to identify opportunities to do better and create change.
We support women to achieve their full potential at HL through our development offerings which include our membership of the 30% Club and participation in their Moving Ahead mentoring programme, our partnership with Women on Boards and our involvement in the Stepping Up programme. We have also recently improved our Family Friendly policies and office facilities to make them more inclusive and appealing to colleagues. Our ‘ExCo Listening Session’ series allows different colleague groups to give feedback on their lived experiences and have included sessions focused on women in different business areas and at different levels.
Family Friendly Policies (all provisions are provided to colleagues regardless of gender and sexuality)
