Financial Times

The Financial Times is one of the world’s leading news organisations, recognised internationally for its authority, integrity and accuracy. It is part of Nikkei Inc., which provides a broad range of information, news and services for the global business community. 

At the FT, we aim for employees across all regions to have a voice so that diverse perspectives are heard and valued. We believe that a supportive workplace is one where employees feel they can be themselves at work and have the flexibility they need to meet their personal needs. We'll continue to remove barriers for all, and in particular barriers facing employees from underrepresented groups.

We value all our people, and offer:

Career development

We offer confidential career coaching, mentoring and a range of training courses, including a development programme designed for women. 

Communities

We support employee-led networks to connect and empower individuals across the organisation. 

FT Access aims to transform attitudes and provide a positive working environment for people with disabilities. FT Access works with external organisations and charities creating supported internships, work experience projects and events.

The FT is proud to be a Disability Confident Employer. We are committed to ensuring our recruitment process is inclusive and accessible by offering interviews to disabled people, anticipating and providing reasonable adjustments as required and supporting employees who acquire a disability or long term health condition.

Accessibility

We aim to provide an accessible website for all our employees and customers. Our website is accredited by the Digital Accessibility Centre.

Flexible working

We offer flexible working arrangements, including flexi leave, parenting leave and paid volunteer leave. 

Recruitment and selection
