NatWest Group


Our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant

The Employer Recognition scheme, supported and awarded by the Ministry of Defence, is designed to recognise employers who are supporting armed forces personnel and their families.

We place a significant value on the role that Veterans play in shaping our organisation. Their work ethic, skill-set and capability to work under pressure are highly prized in an organisation that is going through significant change. We’ve a number of active Reservists in our organisation, whilst our pan-bank Armed Forces Steering Group has strategic responsibility for making banking simpler and fairer for the brave men and women who sacrifice so much to defend us.

We’re a proud supporter of the UK's Armed Forces and signing the Armed Forces Covenant is proof of our commitment to colleagues and customers with links to the Army, Navy or Air Force. Our covenant outlines how we support our military customers, colleagues and the wider military community.

For Natwest Group, that means that we:

  • Provide access to financial services that meet unique needs
  • Support our colleagues in the Reserve Forces by providing bespoke policies including ten days paid leave to attend training – and additional unpaid leave when needed
  • Support family members, veterans and the wider armed forces community
  • Promote ourselves as an Armed Forces-friend.

About us

We’re a business that understands when our customers and people succeed, our communities succeed, and our economy thrives. As part of our purpose, we’re looking at how we can drive change for our communities in enterprise, learning and climate.

As one of the leading supporters of UK business, we’re prioritising enterprise as a force of change. We’re focusing on the people and communities who have traditionally faced the highest barriers to entry and figuring out ways to remove these constraints. 

Learning is also key to our continued growth as a company in an ever changing and increasingly digital world. By setting a dynamic and leading learning culture, our employees prosper, and our customers are given the tools to continue to improve their financial capability and confidence. 

One of the biggest challenges we all face in our future is climate change. That’s why we’ve put it right at the core of our purpose. We want to champion climate solutions with financing and entrepreneurial support, fully embed climate into our culture and decision making, and be climate positive by 2025.  

We’re committed to using our purpose to break down barriers, drive change and ultimately create a great place to work.
