As a place of work, the Bank feels different from most other organisations. The
atmosphere is relaxed but highly professional, research-driven and also very much connected to real events in the economy. While organisations in the private sector are focused primarily on profits, the ultimate objectives for us are always the quality of our thinking and the rigour of our analysis.
That makes for an unusually satisfying place to develop your career. Whichever area of the Bank you join, you will almost certainly be working on high-profile and high-impact projects. The issues we deal with on a daily basis can be seen in the news headlines, and have implications for everyone in the country. For many of our people, this sense of contributing to the public good is one of the most rewarding aspects of working here.
The environment we offer is extraordinary too. Our historic building is located in the heart of the City, and combines rich tradition with up-to-date technology and facilities. Just as importantly, we have a strong culture of support that exists both within each of our teams and across the organisation as a whole.
