For over 200 years we have been tending to the needs of our clients and our success is built on the strength of our people. It’s not just their specialist knowledge, but their desire to do the right thing that makes our clients trust us in order to preserve and enhance their wealth.
Our business is built on long-term, effective relationships based on trust and we care about our people because they genuinely care for our clients. We support, acknowledge and reward those who share our values of integrity, commitment and excellence, and not just within the work environment.
Colleagues are encouraged to get involved in supporting our chosen charities, each local to our six offices, and every member of the team is able to take a day’s paid leave every year for voluntary activity that supports the community or chosen charity.
We take pride in recognising and developing talent, supporting our people in expanding their careers at Brown Shipley. When you join, we’ll help you establish a personal development plan, which will in turn help you fulfil your potential. We’ll support you in attaining industry education and professional qualifications, as well as offering internal opportunities to grow and develop.
To successfully serve the diverse needs of our clients, we need a skilled and diverse team to collaborate effectively. We are an equal opportunities employer and all aspects of recruitment and employment are conducted with a commitment to diversity. In line with our values, we have a fair and transparent process in terms of selection and recruitment in all areas including remuneration, promotion, training and transfers.
In March 2019, we issued our gender pay gap report, which can be downloaded here.
To demonstrate our commitment to increasing female representation in our senior roles we have signed up to the HM Treasury Women in Finance Charter. As part of this commitment, we have an objective to increase the number of women in senior management positions within the business to 25% by December 2020.
