We recognise potential, whoever you are

Our purpose is to provide excellent investment performance to clients through active management. Diversity of thought facilitated by an inclusive culture will allow us to make better decisions and better achieve our purpose. This is why inclusion and diversity are a strategic priority for us and why we are an equal opportunities employer: you are welcome here regardless of your age, disability, gender identity, religious beliefs, sexual orientation, socio-economic background or any other protected characteristics


As an investment manager we make decisions every day on behalf of savers and investors around the world. They depend on our broad investment expertise, across private and public markets to manage: £731.6 billion (€871.3 billion/$990.9 billion)* of wealth and investments. We help them achieve their long-term financial goals – and make a positive impact in the world.


Over the years, we’ve perfected investing in our people

We’ve built a stellar reputation for our work and unique culture. Our secret? We’ve picked the best people for the job, and given them the opportunities and tools to thrive.

So it’s no surprise that 96% of us say that we’re proud to work at Schroders. And why we repeatedly have made it into LinkedIn’s top 25 places to work.

You don’t just get a job here – you can fulfil your career ambitions

Once you’re part of our team, our global learning and mentoring platforms help you hone your expertise and keep developing. We’re big on mobility – so many people find their next job at Schroders, too, moving up and across the business to build a fulfilling career.

Inclusion is more than a buzz word

It’s part of everything we do. We’ve built a culture where people can bring their whole selves to work, and we welcome unique perspectives. We also set trackable goals to improve representation across the board wherever we fall short.

We’ve made inclusion a conscious choice at every step

Our vision is for our people to reflect the diversity of the communities we live and work in. And for everyone to feel they truly belong at Schroders.

Our industry-leading flexible working charter is central to inclusion, opening up opportunities for everyone. We shape our recruitment and retention processes to help spot and reduce the impact of biases, and create a level playing field for underrepresented groups, for example through mentoring schemes. And we constantly review our policies and benefits to make sure they are fair and supportive of our diverse teams.

We take a local-led approach to improving inclusivity

Everyone’s at a different stage of their inclusion journey – with cultural and local practices to consider. So we listen to our employees through pulse surveys and collect diversity data so we can identify areas for improvement, and maximise impact through local initiatives.

Our partnerships - such as with RecruitMilitary in the US, the Technology in Finance Immersion Programme in Singapore, and the Investment 20/20 in the UK, to name a few - broaden our outreach and help us create a lasting impact.

Driving inclusion at Schroders**

As a Disability Confident employer and a member of the global Valuable 500 initiative, we’ve partnered with a disability-specialist organisation to conduct an audit and provide recommendations on how to make our recruitment processes more accessible to potential candidates with a disability.

We’re excited to continue our partnership with the Snowdon Trust following the success of our first paid work placements for individuals with a disability in February 2021.

Our passionate people lead the way

Our employee-led inclusion networks support our grassroots approach to building an inclusive culture. These create space for networking, celebrating our differences, and raising awareness of challenges that under-represented groups face.

Our WorkAbility employee-led inclusion network aims to educate employees, champion accessibility, and provide a supporting network for those affected by disability or long-term health conditions.

Transparency around our progress holds us to account

Inclusion is everyone’s business. There’s still a long way to go, so we use what we know to help the firms we invest in to accelerate change together across the industry and beyond. It’s important for us to be open about the high standards we set for ourselves, and to hold the companies we invest in to account.

And we offer a world of wellbeing at work

Looking after our people is always first on our list. We hold regular events supporting mental and physical wellness. And our global employee assistance programme is on hand offering free, independent, and confidential support.

And we offer flexible working and locally-relevant benefits

At Schroders, everyone works flexibly and has access to our global learning platforms and opportunities and our best-practice framework for mental health and wellbeing at work. We are also constantly reviewing and evolving our policies to suit an ever-changing set of needs and family set–ups.

We’re recognised for our inclusive workplace

We’re proud to be recognised as Large Employer of the Year at the prestigious FTAdviser Diversity in Finance Awards, and are continually included in the Bloomberg Gender Equality Index and among the Top 75 employers of the Social Mobility Index.
