About the business

In Human Resources our role is to make the bank a great place to work, a place where everyone is treated fairly and able to fulfil their potential. This comes down to understanding people, and how we work best together.

We shape and deliver strategy for the business in areas like recruitment, learning, reward, and inclusion, to make sure we have the people, skills and perspectives we need to deliver for our customers.
