We value the diversity of our colleagues and are committed to creating an inclusive culture. We prize fairness, want to attract and retain talent and enable you to reach your full potential. So we encourage colleagues to bring their passion and enthusiasm to work, to recognise and celebrate differences and to be respectful and curious about diversity.

Our employee-led networks are important partners in helping us create an inclusive culture. These networks inspire our employees to develop their skills, build successful careers, provide focused personal development and offer a wealth of networking opportunities. Most importantly they’re open to everyone.

Our networks are run by colleagues and play a key role in delivering, raising awareness of, and influencing our bank-wide inclusion strategy.

Here are just a few you could get involved in as an graduate, intern or apprentice.

The Young Bankers Association (YBA)

We support our members through the first six years of their career, around networking, sharing ideas and getting to know colleagues throughout the bank. We’ll show you different areas of the bank, connect you with senior people and specialists, as well as increase your awareness of bank wide issues and help you to map out your career path.

RBS Ambassadors

Together we’re helping build a network of people sought out for their honesty, insight and feedback. We have license to say when things aren't right, so by inspiring conversations and changing one thing for the better at a time, we'll play a part in changing the company. We’re built on a foundation of great people like you who can help make our bank better for our customers, our communities and our colleagues.

Focused Women network

We help RBS attract, retain and develop talented female colleagues. With almost 12,000 members across 33 countries, we support the development and career advancement of all RBS colleagues. We welcome male and female colleagues as members to the network - our development activities are relevant to everyone.

RBS Multicultural network

We support the variety of cultures that exist within our organisation, as well as in our communities, and harness and celebrate the diversity among our colleagues. We proactively support the recruitment, development and retention of skilled employees from all backgrounds, facilitate events and initiatives designed to engage, inform and help each of us to bring the best of ourselves to work.

Families and Carers network

Our Families and Carers network supports and enables parents and carers to achieve a successful work-life balance. We promote a supportive work environment which enables parents and carers to realise their full potential, to network across the bank and to tap into resources for development opportunities and advice to achieve the right work-life balance. Similarly, RBS supports Citymothers and Cityfathers - inclusive networks for City professionals who have a shared interest in balancing family life with a progressive career.

RBS Rainbow network

We’re one of the largest Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) networks in the banking sector and were established in 2005 by employees for employees. We're working together to help develop a truly inclusive culture within RBS, one that enables all colleagues to bring the best of themselves to work. We support employees with any LGBT issues they may have, in or out of work. We will always treat any enquiry as 100% confidential. Regional representatives each undertake work to support charities that enhance the lives of LGBT people too.


Enable, our disability network, promotes awareness of disability and its impact, to create a better bank for colleagues, customers and our work communities. We're working together to help develop a truly inclusive culture within RBS, one that enables people, with all abilities, and those who care for others, to bring the best of themselves to work.

Corporate & Institutional Banking’s Compass

We aim to build gender diversity across all levels of the organisation by helping women achieve their ambitions and reach their full potential. We shape the debate around gender diversity in CIB and influence the diversity agenda across RBS. We act as a voice for gender equality, provide a means for women to connect to each other, seek advice, find role models and facilitate their navigation around the firm, as well as partner with other RBS Group networks.
