As the country’s central bank, we play a fundamental role in the UK economy – ensuring monetary stability and contributing to financial stability. Our work has an impact on the entire nation. Choose a career with us and you will have the chance to apply your knowledge, develop your skills, and truly make a difference.
From our premises in the City of London, we set interest rates to control inflation and devise economic policy. But this is only half the story. In response to the global financial crisis, we’re now involved in a broad range of other activities to enhance the resilience of the UK financial system and its institutions. This includes the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA), established in 2013 to promote the safety and security of banks and insurance companies through effective regulation.
All the Bank’s activities are focused on public policy and the wider public good, which gives us a real feeling of shared purpose. It’s created a supportive, collaborative culture where knowledge and expertise is readily shared. Historic yet forward-thinking, the Bank of England is the perfect place to pursue your future career.
Upon joining, many people are surprised by just how friendly, welcoming, and open our environment is. It’s not the only surprising thing about us. So take a closer look, and see the Bank differently.
