Diversity and Inclusion is hugely important to us at mthree and takes many forms; from ensuring our culture is right and D&I policies are followed; through to running events to promote social mobility and widening participation. 

We unashamedly aspire to continue to nurture an environment of diversity, equality of opportunity and inclusion.

We do this because:

- We want mthree to represent modern Britain.

- Different thoughts and approaches from diverse cultures lead to new ideas and new ways of doing things.

- We want to continue attracting and retaining the best talent, and we want to become even better at this.

 

Tech Talent Charter Member

In October, mthree became a signatory of the Tech Talent Charter (TTC). Becoming a member of the TTC is a commitment by organisations to a set of undertakings that aim to deliver greater inclusion and diversity in the tech workforce of the UK, one that better reflects the make-up of the population.

Thomas Seymour MCIPD, HR Director at mthree said: “Joining the Tech Talent Charter is a fantastic opportunity to align mthree with other organisations that have the same passion for championing the recruitment and crucially the retention of a diverse workforce with an inclusive culture."

 

Spring Week – Widening Participation

Starting in 2020; mthree will be offering undergraduates the opportunity to join mthree for a week over their spring holidays.

Spring Week is aimed at 1st-year computer scientists and as always, we welcome as many applications from all backgrounds. We will also be utilising our University partnerships to work with their widening participation teams to make sure we have a fantastic diverse and inclusive spring week! 

The week is aimed at building confidence, improving employability skills, developing leadership and team skills and motivating them to start a career in technology and financial services.

 

Internship – Women in Technology

For the last three years mthree has provided undergraduates in their penultimate year of university the opportunity to experience working with mthree onsite in an investment bank.

A key aim for the programme is to encourage more females to consider a career in finance technology with a target of 70% female representation for the programme.

Undergraduates get opportunity to work on a real-life project for the bank which is presented to the CIO and his leadership team in the final week as well as doing rotations through Development, Business Analysis and Production Support teams. If successful interns get the opportunity to join mthree onsite with the investment bank once they graduate.
