Promoting Gender Diversity – Women In Finance Update

17th May 2018

Rebuildingsociety.com has always had the mission of supporting UK businesses through the wider provision of finance to those that need it. Recently we extended our mission to publicly pushing for gender diversity in all businesses but specifically those in financial services.

In March 2018, we signed the HM Treasury Women in Finance Charter, marking our commitment to improving gender diversity in our industry, through supporting the progression of women in senior roles within our organisation.

We have recently re-affirmed our commitment to improving gender diversity within our team through the appointment of Non-Executive Investment Director, Georgina Mitchell. This sees 44% of Rebuildingsociety.com’s team as being female and 40% of its Board and Non-Executive team also being female.

We’re dedicated to continually improving gender diversity within our team whilst improving work-life balance for all our staff. As a business with technology at our core we’ve invested significantly in IT and communication systems that allows staff to work remotely if required, with many working securely from home in order to honour family commitments.

CEO Dan Rajkumar says ‘We’re committed to meeting our objectives under the Women in Finance Charter. By creating a flexible work environment with the technology to support individuals that have other commitments we’re well positioned to attract the talent of all people that want to further their career and maintain work / life balance. Fostering gender diversity has been core since the start, rather than a means to improving overall public perception of the firm.’

Rebuildingsociety.com is also pushing for greater gender diversity within associated business partners and professional networks. As a founding firm of FinTech North, rebuildingsociety.com has specifically sought to balance the gender gap of speakers at FinTech North’s monthly and annual events as well as engaging a more diverse audience. This year’s FinTech North event in Leeds saw a noticeably higher proportion of female attendees to previous years as mentioned by Susan Sutherland of Fiserv.

As a firm we plan to continue promoting gender diversity within our workplace by improving the percentage of women in senior roles and on the board to 50% by 2020.

If you would like to become part of our team why not apply for one of our roles now.
