Nedbank Private Wealth, which employs over 300 people across Jersey, the Isle of Man, London and Dubai, has been listed within the prestigious Best Places to Work 2024 list in The Sunday Times, within the ‘Big Organisation’ category.

The list recognises organisations who have consistently high levels of employee engagement and wellbeing in the UK (including the Crown Dependencies) and is assessed primarily on results from a survey conducted amongst the applicants’ workforces. To be selected, Nedbank Private Wealth has achieved excellent scores across a range of categories including, instilling pride, empowerment, job satisfaction and wellbeing.

People all across Nedbank Private Wealth are now benefiting from recently introduced ‘Life focused’ employee policies including; 24/7 GP services, generous parental and neonatal leave, childcare financial support and carers leave and sabbaticals, alongside existing private health insurance for the entire family, and support with professional development.

The perks also benefit the wider local communities across the organisation through newly introduced volunteer leave, and also builds on their already well-established charity and education initiatives, such as a recent collaboration with Autism Jersey.

Stuart Cummins, CEO at Nedbank Private Wealth, says “The key to delivering on our client expectations lies in our people, and they make Nedbank Private Wealth a fantastic place to work. Creating a culture where over 300 staff all feel valued and included is incredibly important to us. I’m delighted that this has been recognised by The Sunday Times Best Places to Work 2024 list, this year.”

Rachel Quirk, Executive Head of HR, says “Our people are our greatest asset and the driving force behind our success. We foster an inclusive workplace where talent thrives, and every individual career flourishes. We are extremely proud to have worked with our people to understand their needs both in and outside of the workplace, and we’ve recently reflected this through a wide range of enhanced life focused initiatives that really build on our existing strong focus on people.”

James, a member of the Private Banking team at Nedbank Private Wealth, said “I joined Nedbank Private Wealth at the start of 2023 and it was a real eyeopener for me. Having worked in the financial services sector for over 20 years – at both large corporates and smaller private firms – I do believe that working here is the best kept secret in financial services. There is a great culture and people feel both valued and engaged. This is clear to see from the fact there are people in the business who have spent one or more decades of their career with the company. I wish I had joined sooner!”
