Our mission is to promote the good of the people of the UK by maintaining monetary and financial stability

We know our work matters to people up and down the UK. From setting the ‘Bank Rate’ - which aims to keep price rises (inflation) at the Government's target, all the way through to monitoring the financial system, reducing risks, and keeping people's money safe.  

We also work behind the scenes to make sure payments happen every single second of every day. From the 4.6 billion-plus banknotes we’ve issued that are currently in circulation, to the £775 billion of payments we settled every working day in 2022/23.

We are known by peers for our innovative thinking on policy and strategy. By working here, you can contribute to career-defining work at the heart of the UK economy.

You'd be joining fantastic teams driven by curiosity and the desire to do important, challenging work

We are proud to recruit talented people from a huge range of different skill sets, including:

  • administration
  • communications
  • economics
  • facilities management
  • finance
  • human resources (HR)
  • information technology (IT)
  • law
  • physical and cyber security
  • research and data
  • risk
  • supervision

...and many others.

People who are naturally curious can thrive at the Bank of England. There is always something going on - from exploring the possibilities of a digital pound to responding to the financial risks of climate change. We are also committed to reducing our own environmental impact, and have set a net zero target for our physical operations by 2040.

There are opportunities across our organisation to learn and progress. You can build a career and experiences to be proud of - all whilst growing and developing as an individual.

We are committed to creating a place where colleagues can be themselves and speak openly and honestly about their views

Considering different perspectives helps us to make the best decisions for the public. We want to be a place where everyone feels they belong, and has equal access to opportunities. 

We're developing an inclusive workplace culture and building a diverse workforce, which reflects the society we serve. 

We believe that our voice is made stronger by learning about what each of us has to say - regardless of role and experience. A valuable part of this means working closely with our colleague-led networks. These important relationships influence and impact our internal decisions involving policy and culture change.

We have a strong ethos around how we operate as individuals as well as an organisation. This ethos - our ‘bank behaviours’ - is at the heart of all we do. It is a framework for a culture which enables our people to thrive, invest in personal career development and work together on our mission.
