Starling Bank has over 680 women in its workforce, making up a record 43 % of the total headcount (1,601).

The company has voluntarily committed to HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter that it signed up to in 2017.

“We have met our ambitious target of 40 % of women in senior roles by 2021,” said CEO and founder Anne Boden. “However, more work is needed on all fronts across the financial sector to deliver the commitments in the Women in Finance Charter.”

“This includes tackling the gender pay gap, paying women fairly and supporting women to flourish and thrive so they can access leadership and technical jobs that are valued and highly paid.”

Starling claims that women make up 41 % of its senior managers, which includes employees with senior management functions and significant line management responsibilities.

Also, earlier this year UEFA Women’s EURO announced that Starling Bank is the official national banking partner of the tournament.

“It is important for us to have partners on board who share the same values, working together collectively to deliver what is set to be a record-breaking tournament that further grows the women’s game.”

“We are honored to be able to share the excitement of the Women’s EURO with our customers,” stated Rachel Kerrone, Head of Brand at Starling Bank.
