+ Women in Finance Charter Pledge

In July 2018 Fintellect Recruitment signed the Women in Finance charter, and were the first recruitment company to do so.

The Charter was introduced by HM Treasury as a pledge for financial services firms to work together to create greater gender balance in financial services.

Published in March 2016, it commits firms to supporting the progression of women within the industry and commits its signatories to achieve a multitude of gender based targets.

At Fintellect Recruitment we feel that as a recruiter to the financial services industry we are in a fantastic position to really help our fellow signatories and future partners to achieve gender diversity within their workforce.

We have set a number of numbers to ensure we can make as big of a difference as possible;


  • We aim to create gender diverse shortlists for all roles, with a minimum one of one female per role at interview.

  • We will promote Women in Finance amongst our clients and educate them on the approach many women take to looking for a new role, and how to adapt their interview process to support this.

  • We will aim to ensure that all female candidates placed by Fintellect with be paid fairly and in line with the salaries of their male counterparts.

  • We will empower women to seek and apply for roles that they previously did not think were applicable to them. We will give them the courage through our support, passion and education of our clients to help them remove their glass umbrella and achieve their  goals.

  • Fintellect Recruitment will always maintain a minimum 50% female workforce as we develop as a business, to ensure we commit to uphold what we promote.
