    This is the third consecutive year that STBG has been awarded both a UK Best Workplaces for Women award and a ENEI TIDE Mark, proving that employees feel a strong sense of trust, fairness and wellbeing in their workplace.

    Anne McKenning, HR Director for STBG, said:

    "We're delighted to be recognised by ENEI and Great Place to Work for the progress we have made on diversity and inclusion over the last year. At STBG we are committed to creating a culture where everyone has the same opportunities and feels able to be themselves. We have a strong D&I vision and agenda across all areas of the business which is led by our D&I steering group and we understand that a drive for continuous improvement is in the best interest of the organisation, employees and stakeholders."

    Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK, explains:

    "We're delighted to recognise so many great organisations in this fourth year of the UK's Best Workplaces™ for Women list. The issues affecting women in the workplace, particularly what we've witnessed in the face of the pandemic including parity of pay and advancement opportunities, continue to be important topics. We are proud that, thanks to this ranking and the insights afforded by our successful organisations, we can help raise awareness of the importance of fairness around pay, recognition, training and development opportunities, and work-life balance. What our 2021 UK's Best Workplaces™ for Women clearly show is the positive impact their practices have on business. As a result, they are better able to attract and retain women of talent, encouraging them to develop professionally and personally, and in turn, contribute exponentially to the success of the organisations they work for."

  • Recruitment – record breaking month
    Four members of staff

    It’s all hands on deck in the Secure Trust Bank Group recruitment team of late, in February alone they filled a whopping 61 vacancies. This was a record-breaking month for the team whose previous record for roles filled was in the 40’s!

    Almost a quarter of the roles filled were internal promotions, this is a real testament to the quality of staff that we have within our Group that so many roles were filled internally.

     To fill these 61 roles, the team had to screen over 800 candidates. All of this whilst working on a large project to replace the current Applicant Tracking System (ATS). This is a lengthy project relying heavily on the recruitment team’s support.

    Look out for more news on the recruitment team coming soon…
