BondMason and The Women in Finance Charter
On July 11th, BondMason signed up to the Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter. By committing to the charter we have pledged to undertake four actions to address gender diversity in our organisation, by supporting our female employees to advance in their career and into leadership roles.
The charter now covers 760,000 finance sector employees based in the UK, from a total of 272 signatories. As part of the charter, we have agreed to: having a member of our senior managment team responsible and accountable for gender diversity and inclusion; setting targets for gender diversity in our senior management team; publishing annually our yearly progress on these objectives; and intending to ensure the pay of the senior management team is linked to the delivery of these targets.
Here are some key facts about the gender ratio of our employees:
- Women form 50% of the BondMason team
- 80% of our female employees work part time
- 75% of our female part time workers are in a managerial position or above
- We have an ‘all girl’ sales and marketing team
- Half of our operations and technical team is compiled of women
- One third of our investment team is female
- All of our female team are being supported with their Continued Professional Development plans, with three members undertaking Diplomas alongside their roles.
Our CEO, Stephen Findlay, is delighted that we have pledged our commitment to the Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter;
“Here at BondMason, we are proud to be a family friendly employer and embrace the opportunity to provide our female employees with the chance to progress their careers with BondMason, we offer flexible working to allow all employees to work around their family commitments”
“We have always been dedicated to diversity as part of our culture, and we are really pleased our commitment to supporting women in this male dominated sector is now formally recognised."
