Standard Life is an investment company headquartered in Edinburgh and employing around 6,500 people internationally. We have over 190 years of experience, helping people invest and manage their money.
Our aim is to achieve strong growth and deliver excellent returns for our shareholders. To achieve our strategic goals we need talented individuals that will fully embrace our vision and brand, delivering exceptional work with pride.
Our people are the lifeblood of our Company. We recognise the unique talents and experiences that our employees bring to our business coupled with the contribution our global employee network make toward our overall aim. At Standard Life, our culture is one of inclusion, mutual respect, honesty and doing the right thing.
We invest in our people, give clear direction, and lots of autonomy too. And our growth strategy means an exciting and evolving environment in which to make a difference for our clients.
We have a strong focus on development and we’ll support you as you continue to learn and work toward achieving your ambitions. We believe in a partnership approach to careers, where you, your manager and the organisation are all clear about responsibilities. We offer support with further learning and qualifications, and award winning leadership development programmes. We believe great performance should be rewarded. The way we manage performance provides plenty of opportunities to give and receive feedback, review outcomes and recognise successes. We help you understand your strengths and aspirations, and ensure you know what's expected of you.
Our offices are open, pleasant environments, with personal space for working and areas for interaction with others. We have healthy catering, coffee bars and areas for taking time out to relax. We offer a range of flexible lifestyle benefits, including holiday buy/sell, private healthcare and dental insurance (these benefits vary depending on which part of the Group you work in.) Because we know there are not-so-good times in and out of work too, we provide counselling and guidance advice over the phone too.
Diversity & Inclusion
At Standard Life we value your individuality. Your experiences, values, beliefs, background, opinions, thinking styles, and so on make you who you are. We promote an inclusive company culture where you can be yourself and achieve your potential. We believe diverse teams out-perform more homogenous teams, will make better decisions (less group-think), demonstrate more innovation and collaboration, and will attract and retain stronger talent. We appreciate that a more diverse workforce is vital in an international organisation, helping us anticipate changing markets and client expectations. We have a number of employee-led network groups, including our Women’s Network, our Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) network, our Young Person’s Development Network, our Carers’ Network and our Armed Services Network.
