Women in Finance Charter
We've signed up to the HM Treasury's Charter on Women in Financial Services, and aim to create gender balance by setting a target of 50% women in senior roles over the next five years. This commitment builds on our existing gender equality strategy and demonstrates our commitment to do more, with a 10% flexibility to reflect the timescale, the desire to develop the right internal talent and existing availability of senior women in the financial services industry.
One of the first steps towards achieving our goal was being recognised in the top 20 list for female representation on our Executive Committee in the Gadhia Review.
Santander is a signatory of the Time to Change Employer Pledge demonstrating our commitment to change how we think and act about mental health in the workplace and make sure that employees who are facing these problems feel supported.

The Good Recruitment Campaign helps organisations benchmark their current recruitment methods and reinvigorate their strategies in order to attract the right candidate. It helps to address youth employment through our recruitment procedures; for example, through the provision of apprenticeships and traineeships, and by working with recruitment organisations who have signed up to the REC’s Youth Employment Charter.
Supporting Former Armed Forces members
We’re dedicated to hiring from the Armed Forces and their families and this year we signed the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant. The Covenant is our promise to ensure those who serve or have served, and their families, are treated fairly. Signing the Covenant is only a small part of how we support the Armed Forces. We also work closely with the Career Transition Partnership. They support us by providing recruitment services to find quality applicants for apprenticeships, full time and vocational work opportunities.
