The Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies 2019

We are absolutely committed to becoming a truly inclusive place to work, where everyone, regardless of their gender, race, ethnicity, ability or sexual orientation, has an equal opportunity to reach their true potential.

This helps to ensure that we attract, retain and develop leading talent within our business, regardless of background or personal characteristics. It enables us to provide equal opportunities for all our colleagues and ensures that we reflect the diversity of our client base and the markets in which we operate.

We want BFS to be a great place to work for all our colleagues and, as a Sunday Times Best Companies employer, we know that there is always more we can do to involve and develop a broader range of talent within our business.

Inclusion and Diversity

Our approach

Our Inclusion and Diversity approach is built around our core values. We encourage our teams to live our values in their day-to-day roles empowering them to contribute fully to our vision to be the independent financial services company with which every ambitious business would love to work.

Our core values are to:

  • Work together
  • Trust each other
  • Be better
  • Be innovative
  • Do the right thing

Improving diversity and the way we manage inclusion is an absolute priority. If we can reflect the environments and markets in which we operate, we will build a better, future-looking business for our colleagues and clients, contributing positively to the communities in which we work.

Women in Finance Charter

Gender pay gap

Doing the right thing is critical to the future of our business and our people. We are committed to improving our gender pay and bonus gaps by increasing the proportion of women in sales and senior roles. We believe that addressing our gender pay gap is not only the right thing to do, but is vital for our future success.

By supporting important initiatives such as International Women’s Day and joining the Women in Finance Charter, we champion the achievements of the talented women we have right across our business.

Disability Confident Committed


We are striving to create a truly inclusive culture which allows colleague of all abilities to be acknowledged and appreciated for their contributions.

As part of our Inclusion and Diversity strategy, we are working towards ensuring that those with a disability or health condition have the opportunity to reach their career goals and achieve their aspirations.

In 2019 we became a Disability Confident Committed employer. While we know there is more to do in this area, joining the scheme has helped us to think differently about how we can improve the way in which we attract, retain and develop those with disabilities.
