New female-friendly job board aims to close the City’s gender pay gap

Press Release: June 02, 2021

Investing in Women today announced the launch of its new job board. Investing in Women offers employers in the Banking, Finance, Accounting, FinTech, Insurance, Consulting, Real Estate and Legal sectors a new way to improve their gender diversity and meet gender targets by hiring individuals looking for flexible and part-time work.
 
“I am hugely passionate about the power of flexible work,” says Elizabeth Willetts, Founder of Investing in Women. “I believe ‘quality’ flexible and part-time work is key to retaining women in the workplace and ultimately closing the gender pay gap.”
 
Features and benefits of advertising a job vacancy with Investing in Women include:
 
·      Access to our growing and engaged community of exceptional female talent
·      Recruitment expertise, knowledge and advice on how to hire more women
·      Ability to showcase the initiatives you are running to improve diversity in your organisation with your own customisable landing page.
·      Free job postings for a limited time
 
Elizabeth continues, “The truth is it makes business sense to hire more women. The CIPD tells us that diverse leadership teams deliver an 18% return on equity premium. McKinsey adds that bridging the UK gender gap in work can create an extra £150 billion on top of business-as-usual GDP forecasts in 2025.
 
But these benefits are just the start. There are so many more benefits to hiring more women and staff on flexible working patterns than just outperforming the competition.”
 
Employers will be able to advertise their vacancies from Monday 7th June for free for a limited time. For more information on Investing in Women, visit https://www.investinginwomen.co.uk or email mailto:elizabeth@investinginwomen.co.uk.
