Hargreaves Lansdown (HL), one of the leading investment and financial services providers is hiring people like you. This is great news for our vibrant community of jobseekers, since HL recently achieved 55/Redefined’s Age Inclusive accreditation, as part of its ongoing and unwavering commitment to challenging age bias and championing a workplace that is equitable for all employees.

What is Age Inclusive Accreditation?

To achieve Age Inclusive accreditation, employers like HL must commit to four key actions: ensuring recruitment processes are inclusive and accessible to candidates over 50; communicating and promoting vacancies fairly, reviewing HR policies relating to retirement, and investing in technical training and re-skilling for older age groups.

Age Inclusive employers play a leading role in changing attitudes for the better and challenging age discrimination. They are transforming prevalent cultures in their own businesses, networks and communities, and reaping the benefits of inclusive recruitment practices.

Hargreaves Lansdown is proud to be working in partnership with 55/Redefined to recruit over-50s talent.

What Does HL Do?

HL is the UK’s number one platform for private investors, employing over 2000 people. For over 40 years, they have helped clients save time, tax and money on their investments and are trusted with more than £120 billion by over 1.7 million clients. The company is based in Bristol.

What Are the Values at HL?

HL’s management team are committed to building a diverse and equitable workforce. Rob Divall, Chief People Officer, said: “The Age Inclusive employer accreditation helps to evidence our commitment to develop a diverse and inclusive culture where colleagues are engaged, empowered, work together and live our values. We want to create an environment where colleagues respect and celebrate diversity so that everyone can be their authentic selves.

"We’re thrilled to be partnering with 55/Redefined to further demonstrate our commitment to being an inclusive employer.”

This commitment to transforming inside the organisation extends to their tireless work for their clients, as they seek to break down the barriers and misconceptions that might prevent people from saving and investing their money with confidence, moving away from the premise that investment is only for the wealthy, to something that is accessible for all.

Their ambition is to consistently simplify the financial choices of their customers by making it easy and straightforward to manage their savings, investments and pensions.

How Does HL Support Its Employees?

Despite its impressive growth, HL remains a friendly, agile company where anyone can make a difference and contribute their ideas.

The company recognises that its ongoing success is strongly linked to the contribution of its employees and believes that everyone has the capability to succeed in anything they do. To support their people on that journey, they provide learning, development and leaders to help team members to perform at their best.

HL offers a wide range of employee benefits, including a ground-breaking menopause support programme, family-friendly, flexible and hybrid working, plus an attractive range of employee benefits. Their HQ is located in the heart of Bristol, with no shortage of things to do in the area, for individuals and families alike. It’s also the perfect place for socialising after work!
