Back to About Shawbrook

A bank where everyone belongs

Shawbrook is a specialist bank driven by a purpose to power up ingenuity to create opportunity, every single day.


If you’re willing to roll up your sleeves, contribute new ideas and believe anything is possible, you’re our kind of person.

We might be a bank, but it's not just about the money

In addition to a competitive salary, we offer you lots of great benefits that will support your lifestyle, wellbeing, and development. Your happiness is important to us, and we want to make sure you feel looked after and supported in your job.

What we do

We offer a diverse range of savings and loan products. From personal and business savings accounts and loans for weddings and new cars, to complex financial credit facilities for businesses requiring significant investment and mortgages for landlords with multiple properties - no two customers are ever the same.

We give our customers the best-of-both worlds; uniquely combining strong digital capabilities with human expertise and ingenuity to deliver the best outcomes. We rise to the challenge of a complex case or unconventional circumstances, and we love to make things happen.

By being creative, practical, and personal, we know we can always find the right solution for our customers.

The new normal

We love getting together in one of our eight offices dotted around the country but we offer a flexible blend of remote and office working. Everyone at Shawbrook can embrace the hybrid approach, and we’ve taken advantage of the best technology in our meeting rooms to allow for office and remote collaboration.

If you decide to work in one of our offices, you won't have your own desk, but you'll be able to pre-book a desk that's yours for the day.

We don't have a dress code either. We care more about what you bring to your role than what you wear.

Work with us because you:

  • Want to be part of a bank built for the dynamics of the modern world
  • Relish a challenge and enjoy a fast-paced, innovative and hard-working culture
  • Enjoy finding new and better ways to solve complexity and make things happen
  • Care about society and the environment and you want to be part of a business that cares too
  • Want to continue to grow professionally and be the best version of yourself

Meet your colleagues

Why not delve into the brilliant and unfiltered minds of some of the people who make Shawbrook such a great place to work.

We lift the lid on people’s motivations, values, and the attributes they believe are crucial for the roles they do, and you can hear why they believe Shawbrook is unique and how they power up ingenuity to create opportunity, every single day. Even better, they only have one minute to do it in.

Embedding our approach

We’re fiercely committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment, where everyone feels as if they belong. 

When our people talk, we listen. Their voices are heard by the board through our people engagement forum.

There will always be more we can do but here’s just a snapshot of some of the steps we have taken to make sure everyone is treated equally:

  • We have a zero tolerance policy for any kind of discrimination
  • We recognise diversity as more than gender and race
  • We have an established and very active Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Working Group
  • Our inclusion network helps employees to share views, ideas and experiences
  • We support industry and societal change by committing to Diversity charters such as, Women in Finance and Race at Work
  • We publicly support social causes our employees have told us are important to them

A force for good

We’re not the kind of bank that makes decisions simply because they will be more profitable or are the easy thing to do. We want to run our business in a sustainable way that creates positive impacts to all of our stakeholders - including the communities we operate in as well as our customers, our investors and third parties we work with. Our Environmental, Society and Governance (ESG) activities mean you can feel proud to work with a bank that does more than simply transact money.

People and society

We relish projects that support our purpose of creating opportunity and channel a positive contribution to social mobility.

Future First

Our partnership with Future First is aimed at helping the next generation understand the breadth of career opportunities available to them in financial services.

Empower Her

Through our partnership with the Saracens Foundation, we aim to inspire the next generation of female leaders in sport.

Doing good business

We champion providing solutions for individuals and businesses that embody our determination to be a force for good in the world, for example:

  • Finance solutions to enable the provision of housing to communities
  • Supporting the self-employed and entrepreneurs with finance solutions that reflect the realities of real-life and the fact that not everybody fits into a neat credit scoring box
  • Wholesale funding for non-bank specialist lenders, powering competition in the market and enabling the provision of finance to underserved groups

Looking after our planet

We recognise that climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time and, as well as taking action to reduce our own carbon footprint, we want to play a key role in supporting our customers’ climate transition plans.

You don’t have to love sport to work here...

But if you do, you're going to love working here!

Shawbrook is proud partner of Saracens Rugby Club, supporting the men’s and women’s rugby teams as well as the Saracens Mavericks netball team and the Saracens Foundation.
