We know that women and black and ethnic minority colleagues are still under-represented in the technology industry and in parts of our organisation. This is something we want to change. Every year, we run structured mentoring programmes for our female, and black and ethnic minority colleagues to support them with their career development.

Career Coaching

Our internal career coaching sessions are confidential. We encourage people to discuss their aspirations, experience and skills, so that we can tailor our support. We offer guidance to find job matches from our range of open vacancies, help with interview preparation, and we offer networking opportunities where possible or relevant.

Learning Hub

There’s something for everyone in our Learning Hub. Bringing all online training together into one place, there are over 10,000 courses available for our colleagues! Every month, up to 100 courses, podcasts, and resources are added or refreshed.
