Supporting Our Communities
At St. James’s Place we have always encouraged our employees to volunteer in the local community.
We source opportunities for our staff through our contacts with local charities and community projects, which are principally based in the shadow of our head office in Cirencester.
We aim to support these communities in many ways, but primarily through Financial Awareness in local schools and colleges, through local community partnerships which we have established and by way of team challenges and individual community support that our employees undertake, both in work time and in their own time.
By supporting our community in this way we hope that this will demonstrate our trustworthiness, reliability and a commitment to our clients and suppliers which goes beyond that of our reputation as a Financial Services Industry expert. We aspire to create an authentic, alternative which clients and suppliers can trust and which the communities we are part of can appreciate and respect.
We recognise the importance and value of financial awareness amongst the younger generations.
We are developing relationships with charities and projects in our local community to help and support them to ensure their sustainability.
We provide opportunities for colleagues to undertake community and charity projects together and we have sought to recognise the other community support in which our employees engage.
