TheCityUK is proud to be a signatory to the Women in Finance Charter and supportive of the government’s goal to achieve gender balance at all levels across an organisation. We are committed to support fairness, equality, inclusion and diversity across the industry and within our own organisation.
The Brokerage has been TheCityUK’s charity partner since June 2016. It is a London-based social mobility charity that works with disadvantaged young people to raise awareness, develop skills and create access to financial and related professional services to increase social mobility and diversity in the workplace.
TheCityUK is a Social Mobility Pledge accredited employer. We have committed to provide coaching, mentoring and structured work experience to people from disadvantaged backgrounds or circumstances. We will also ensure that our recruitment practices promote a level playing field for people from disadvantaged background or circumstances.
TheCityUK proudly supports the UK Social Mobility Awards which are focused on making the advancement of social mobility a key part of how organisations are run in this country. The SOMOs have been established to recognise best practice and innovation, and to encourage action to promote and increase social mobility within Britain’s companies and institutions.
TheCityUK is once again an official champion of National Numeracy Day. The campaign is aimed at raising awareness of the importance of numbers in everyone’s lives and encouraging action to increase numeracy levels across the UK.
TheCityUK proudly supports All Stars London – an organisation inspired by the revolutionary performance-based approach to community development pioneered by the All Stars Project Inc. Performance isn’t just for actors, rappers, dancers or singers: it’s something that everyone is doing all the time – in schools, jobs, families and communities. When people meet for the first time or take on an unfamiliar and challenging role, they summon up the confidence to perform. Learning to ‘perform our lives’ can open up new possibilities for people of all ages.
