Diversity Programs & Initiatives

  "We're moving the dial and see a bright future for women in our industry. We understand the importance of visible female role models as they help inspire and influence young women to seriously consider a role in financial services."

Faizah Tahir, Group Diversity, Inclusion & Wellbeing Manager

  Diversity In The Workplace

A diverse workforce improves the quality of decision-making at all organisational levels and enables ideas, assumptions and any tendency for ‘group think’ to be challenged more effectively.

We are pushing our diversity and inclusion agenda by ensuring that more of OSTC global recruitments are female.<

As an organisation committed to being a workplace that works for all, it’s fantastic to have our efforts recognised by one of the world’s largest LGBTQ+ charities, Stonewall. Following our first Workplace Equality Index assessment at the end of 2021, OSTC Group has been awarded silver status accreditation in Stonewall’s Workplace Equality Index 2022 for our commitment to the inclusion of lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer people in the workplace. While there’s still work to be done, the accolade is testament to the gradual change and impact we’re having. #BeingLGBTQAtWork

OSTC has long been committed to creating a fair and diverse working environment. Today we’re delighted to announce that we’re the proud owners of the Level 1 ‘Disability Confident Committed’ certificate, reflecting our dedication to proactively attracting disabled talent through the @Evenbreak job board. Disability Confident is a government funded scheme that provides employers with the knowledge, skills and confidence they need to attract, recruit, retain and develop disabled people in the workplace. They provide tools, guidance and advice to help companies recruit and retain from the widest possible pool of talent. This qualification is the first rung of the accreditation’s three levels of commitment ladder. And while there is still more progress to make, this is a huge step towards OSTC’s goal of eliminating structural barriers that hinder employees who may have a disability, or care for someone who has, from being able to effectively carry out their job. You can discover all the current OSTC job opportunities suitable for disabled candidates on our Evenbreak profile.
