Société Générale – Why Work With Us?


Welcome to the be-yourself bank.

 

31 million customers. 145,000 employees. 67 countries. But our success is built on the power of one: you. So, wherever you come from and wherever you’re going, we offer everything you need for a personal career journey to be proud of. We offer a uniquely flexible, friendly and people-first culture. Where values are not just talked about – they’re integral to how we do business. 

It's not the world that moves, it's you that makes it move thanks to your actions, your ideas, your plans - be they big or small.

"Our mission is to empower each and every one who wants to positively impact the future. With positive energy, everyone can act to move the world forward. This is the confident and optimistic message we are sending," Frédéric Oudéa, Chief Executive Officer of the Societe Generale Group.

Diversity is an important issue in terms of both ethical requirements and performance. The Group has made it a priority to promote women and international profiles to positions of responsibility and senior management roles at the Bank. To ensure it achieves this objective, the Group has signed the Women in Finance Charter, established a Diversity Board and set up Strategic Talent pools. 

Further to this, our employee networks (Gender, Family and Pride & Allies) empower employees to drive the agenda and ensure that every one of us has a voice. 

This Autumn, we’re moving to our new home in Canary Wharf. A brand-new building at a brand-new address, One Bank Street will bring our staff together as we shape our future. With state-of-the-art facilities, full connectivity and new approaches to flexible working, our people will be free to work in the way that’s most effective for them.

 

Reflecting our commitment to the UK, at our new location we’ll be closer to the people who matter – our clients, our peers and our local communities.
