Benefits & rewards

We believe that hard work deserves great rewards. We offer competitive base salaries and annual performance-based bonuses. Permanent staff can enjoy addition benefits such as medical insurance, generous and flexible annual leave options, retirement benefits, reduced gym membership rates and staff discounts at a wide array of retailers.

We recognise the challenges of working far from home, so if you move from another country to take up a post with us, we’ll help by providing ongoing assistance and relocation allowance.

The Bank’s Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) Policy was approved in September 2014 to strengthen the Bank’s vision to become a truly inclusive, open, modern organisation which leverages diverse talent.

EBRD is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive culture and as such the Diversity and Inclusion Steering Group (DISG) in partnership with HR and our employee networks drive the diversity and inclusion agenda.  EBRDConnect Network focuses on providing opportunities for women to connect with and support each other.  Assisting in shaping futures by providing opportunities for development, fostering valuable connections, and facilitating member success through business and career growth.  The network organises many events and talks within their programme and are shortly to showcase a day of topical activities to celebrate International Women’s Day 8th March.

We are also proud to announce that the EBRD recently took part in an independent and globally recognised assessment of our current standard of gender equality – the Economic Dividends for Gender Equality (EDGE) certification. The results were announced in October 2017 that we have achieved EDGE Assess level and have undertaken to carry out a two year action plan to strive for the next level in 2019.

We are committed to empowering the Bank’s employees to achieve success on their own terms. We strive to provide opportunities for all to connect with and support each other. We offer events and opportunities of exchange that contribute to the personal and professional development of our members.
