The impact of the Bank of England’s work is uniquely far-reaching. As the country’s central bank, we promote the good of the people of the UK by maintaining monetary and financial stability. The work we do, and the decisions we make, influences the daily lives of millions of people.
Our primary role hasn’t changed for over 300 years. But the range of work we do, and the ways in which we deliver it, is changing all the time. Today it’s changing quicker than ever before. And our graduates are a key part of this progress.
Despite the nature of our work, economics is not the only way in. We welcome graduates from all degree disciplines, because quality of thinking is what counts here. Our culture is open and collaborative, where ideas are shared freely and people at every level are empowered to speak up. It is refreshingly diverse too. We look for people from all backgrounds, and individual perspectives are embraced. You’ll find a wide range of societies, clubs and employee networks open to you.
Wherever you work – from Regulation, Technology and Policy Analysis to Economics and Communications – you’ll take on complex work that you can be proud of. You’ll tackle projects that support, shape and challenge the biggest ideas in the economy. And the work you do will benefit every single person in the UK.
As training is at the heart of our programme, you’ll be able to grow into a real expert in your field. Equally, the support is there to explore other parts of the Bank if you wish. There are many and varied pathways available. So if you’re keen to broaden your horizons, you’ll have every opportunity to define your own future as the Bank itself moves forward.
