This is a short post. We’re hiring and want people who get stuff done. Developers, designers, comms, product and tax specialists. Ambitious, curious people who want challenge.
We work together, respect and support each other. But who cares if we all look the same?
When I started as an accountant, I was in a group led by the only openly gay partner in the Big firm. I was surrounded by the most culturally diverse team in the organisation. We stood out by being different.
I also worked for the person who was the first woman partner.
It was wonderful. Others saw these beacons that were unlike the status quo. And embraced them. Big firms often excel at diversity outreach.
But when I go to startup and founder events, we’re white and male.
So we want to be clear. This should be about what you know, not who you know, or what you look like. Whether you’re joining us for the long term, or want to have experience before setting out on your own, regardless of your gender, sexuality, skin colour, or disability, you are untied.
(Help us! We have actively engaged on this issue including through diversity.vc and Future Banking. But we still find it hard to know where to advertise our roles in a way that says “we are especially keen that you see these opportunities”. If there are sites our jobs should be on, let us know.)
