How we recruit

NS&I is committed to best practice in recruitment. Read more about our recruitment principles below.

Civil Service Commissioners’ Recruitment Principles

NS&I’s recruitment processes are underpinned by the principle of selection for appointment on merit on the basis of fair and open competition as outlined in Civil Service Recruitment Principles. A copy of the principles can be found here:

If you feel your application has not been treated in accordance with the recruitment principles and you wish to make a complaint, you should, in the first instance, write to Human Resources, National Savings and Investments, 1 Drummond Gate, London, SW1V 2QX or email.

If you are not satisfied with the response you receive from NS&I, you can contact the Office of the Civil Service Commissioners.

Anonymised recruitment

Anonymised recruitment refers to the removal of the candidate’s name and other personal information such as address and university attended from the candidate’s application prior to shortlisting and interview.

Diversity & Equal Opportunity

National Savings and Investments is committed to equality of opportunity in all its employment practices, policies and procedures. No employee or potential employee will therefore receive less favourable treatment due to their race, creed, colour, nationality, ethnic origin, age, language, religion, political or other opinion affiliation, gender, gender reassignment, sexual orientation, marital status, connections with a national minority, national or social origin, property, birth or other status, family connections, working pattern, membership or non-membership of a trade union or, unless justifiable, disability.

NS&I is one of over 160 signatories to the Women in Finance Charter, led by HM Treasury.
Read here to find out how NS&I is committed to reflecting the Government’s goal to see gender balance at all levels across financial services firms.

All those applying for a vacancy within National Savings and Investments are asked to complete and return an Equal Opportunities Monitoring form.

The information will be treated in the strictest confidence and will only be used in aggregated form for statistical purposes.

National Savings and Investments is a two ticks employer and is therefore committed to interviewing all candidates with a disability who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy.
