Our Culture: Empathy and Collaboration

Our purpose – to think, act and invest responsibly – is central to our culture. We keep the future in mind with every decision we make, including how we nurture our people.

We strive to create a highly engaged workforce – one that is motivated to build a lasting legacy for clients, colleagues and society.

We take our responsibility to our people seriously and regularly ask how they feel about their career and the culture at Rathbones. Our overall engagement scores are high and consistently above our competitor benchmark, reflecting the work everyone puts in to help each other feel motivated and supported. We use insight and data to measure our progress and set targets that hold us accountable for improving.

Supporting your career and your life goals 

We want everyone at Rathbones to feel they can forge a rewarding career and get what they want from life. Our culture is an important way that we nurture a better work life balance.

Our people tell us that a culture of togetherness is strong at Rathbones. As one team, we make sure everyone feels valued and takes the time to get to know each other as people, as well as colleagues.

Path to successful career…

“The main theme I have found in the Rathbones culture is a clear togetherness across the business. People are genuinely supportive of one another and they want to help you succeed. And their actions show that they are willing to help.” – Calum Lee, Senior Finance Analyst – Accounting Operations, Finance (Liverpool) 

“Rathbones is a company that looks after you, cares about its future and has a collaborative and inclusive atmosphere. It is also transparent with its thinking, actions and aims, so we all know what is happening around the business and feel included in its progression. It is exciting to be part of a company that is committed to improving and striving to get better on everything from sustainability to DE&I.” – Chris Holton, Client Service Executive – Investment Management (Cambridge)


Creating the workplace of the future

Hybrid working gives us the opportunity to create the balance that works best. We offer hybrid working where it makes sense for the role and the team, always with a view to supporting clients without compromise.

Collaboration is central to our culture and approach, so we use technology to make home and office working seamless. Teams also typically have set office days to ensure face-to-face interaction and the chance to socialise in a more natural setting.



“I wanted a company that would provide me with a challenging role, where change was embraced and encouraged. I also wanted hybrid working and flexibility to ensure a good work life balance. That’s exactly what I found at Rathbones.” – Joanne McNamee, Senior Finance Manager – Finance (Liverpool)
