HM Treasury Women in Finance Charter

We are proud to be working alongside the HM Treasury and over 200 other organisations to support the progression of women into senior management roles and build a more balanced, fair and representative industry.

In August 2017, we signed up to the HM Treasury’s Women in Finance Charter. The charter reflects the government’s aspiration to see gender balance at all levels across financial services firms. We are proud to be working alongside the HM Treasury and over 200 other organisations to support the progression of women into senior management roles and build a more balanced, fair and representative industry. 

When we first signed the charter, we had 37.5% female representation at senior management level at Post Office. We also outlined at that time that we wanted to increase this to 40% representation by the end of 2018. We were very pleased to have exceeded this target early; by September 2018 female representation at senior management level at Post Office was 41.1%. This positive trajectory continued, with female representation at senior management level improving again to 42.1% in 2019. In 2021 our senior leader representation was 44% and we continue to work towards a senior leadership team that is gender balanced (50% men and 50% women) by 2024.
