  • We pride ourselves in treating people as individuals. Our aim is to help each of our employees to reach their potential. We are committed to providing bespoke training and advancement opportunities to help our people meet their goals and objectives.

  • Induction

    Your journey begins before you join the firm. New hires are given information of any training programmes they are joining and/or are introduced to their teams early so that their introduction into their new team is smooth.

    Managers play a key role in ensuring our new hires are made to quickly feel at home in our culture and are responsible for helping new hires to accelerate their networking. 

    When you join you are introduced to the firm through a well-organised induction programme, which gives you a kick-start to understanding how our business works.

    • How our business works
    • The resources available to employees
    • Your obligations both from a regulatory and cultural point of view
    • Diversity and inclusion initiatives
    • The benefits you can expect
    • Health & Safety obligations

    An overview of our businesses is a critical part of your induction, so that you understand the full range of services we offer clients - and how these can overlap to give our clients an even more complete, comprehensive service.

    Each business within our group will follow up with a specialised induction.

    Our priority is to integrate you effectively into the firm and make you feel at home in our culture. 

    Furthermore, the Rothschild Archive offers monthly insights into the history of the firm which offers new and current employees a truly fascinating overview of how the firm was founded and developed over time.

    A cornerstone of managing your career at Rothschild & Co is the involvement of yourself and your colleagues in the annual performance appraisals. Every employee participates in a 360 performance appraisal in which they assess themselves and receive feedback from a wide range of colleagues.

     Support is provided to help you manage this process and get the most out of your appraisal. As a firm we spend considerable time appraising our people, person-by-person, in benchmarking committees. This allows our managers to share responsibility for people across the businesses rather than just in their immediate area. 

     As previously mentioned your Personal Development Plan is an important follow-up to this and gives us the opportunity to understand where our people need support, be it training, benefitting from a mentoring arrangement, work/international assignments or involvement in special projects.

    Compensation and Benefits

    Rewarding our people appropriately is central to our values and culture and we spend a great deal of time ensuring that we do so fairly.

    Compensation is reviewed on an annual basis in conjunction with the performance appraisal process and consists of carefully balanced fixed and variable elements.

    Fixed compensation is driven by the local market for the role, taking into account your responsibilities, skills and experience.

    Variable compensation is based on a combination of factors including the firm's performance, the performance of the individual businesses as well as your individual performance.

    We are focussed on providing the right set of benefits in all of our locations, for all levels of employees within the firm.

    Our aim is to give everyone the right benefits for them, whether we are focussing on health and wellbeing, pension arrangements, insurance or holiday policies.
