Why have we removed the 2:1 requirement from our early careers recruitment policy?

In October, we removed the minimum 2:1 university degree criteria from our 2023 internship, placement year and graduate programmes as we recognise that the future potential and workplace performance of our people go beyond gaining a specific degree classification. 

Emma Holden, our Global Head of Human Resources said: “Diversity of thought is critical to succeeding in modern business.”

Hear more from Emma and Lauren Hillier, Talent Acquisition Specialist, as they explain why this move will help us access a wider pool of innovative individuals, whilst offering new opportunities to a more diverse range of people.

Ben and Eilidh reflect on what elite sport can teach us about our mental health

We joined our charity partner Samaritans for their Brew Monday initiative to debunk the myth of ‘Blue Monday’ – the ‘most depressing’ day of the year.

We caught up with two athletes trained in resilience: our very own Ben Arnold, Associate Investment Director and England and GB field hockey player, and Schroders-sponsored Eilidh McIntyre, MBE, British sailor and Tokyo 2020 Olympic Champion.

In this candid Q&A, they explored what exposure to elite sport and managing high pressure situations has taught them about maintaining their mental wellbeing.
