BondMason & The Women in Finance Charter

Our commitment to gender diversity

Facilitating the advancement of women in the finance sector

On July 11th 2018, 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 management 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.

Why the Women in Finance Charter is important to BondMason

BondMason CEO, Stephen Findlay explains.

"At BondMason, our culture has been created on our ethos of ‘working to live’.  Our family friendly approach means we’re proud to provide flexible working hours for all our employees, so they can work around family commitments. We are also fully supportive of providing our team with the chance to progress their careers with BondMason, and beyond."
