We value your uniqueness
Our business spans 20 countries across five continents. You’ll work with people all over the world in a company that welcomes diversity. No matter your race, age, sexual orientation, gender, identification, faith or culture, we’d be proud to have you be a part of our community here.
IG has a very active LGBT+ network. The network is open to everyone at IG regardless of sexuality. Whether you're gay or straight (allies), all welcome! Over 200 IG employees have joined so far.
The goal of IG Open is to support the specific needs of employees who identify themselves as LGBT+ and to provide an open forum where people can network, exchange experiences and speak comfortably about any matter.
For those straight employees who support IG Open– our allies – it is a great opportunity for them to give their backing to the group's aims. After all, only with the support of the whole company can we really nurture an environment where all employees can perform to the best of their ability, regardless of sexual orientation.
IG Open has sponsored multiple events and activities: IG’s hub drinks, London Pride, cupcake day, sponsored BFI Flare Film festival, the Red Run and several other LGBT events.

Stay ahead of the curve
By keeping creative thinking at the heart of our business and never settling for ‘good enough, we’ve continued to lead the way in retail trading and investments. If you share our forward-thinking ethos, you’ll find plenty of opportunities to grow here.
Be on the right side of history
We’d rather create a long-term relationship than turn a quick profit. So we’re looking for people who champion the client – who go the extra mile, who develop technology that empowers and delights, and who take pride in giving customers the best possible experience.
Bring your whole self to work
Enjoying your job and feeling like you belong at your company shouldn’t be a luxury. To us it’s a business sense, so we want you to love what we do here.
You’ll work and socialise with like-minded people as part of an inclusive culture, and your views will be championed.
Equality, diversity and inclusion
We believe that a diverse workforce brings creative energy to our business, powers innovation and sets us up for continued global success. We’re committed to developing teams of individuals with a wide variety of perspectives and skills to help us realise our vision and strategy. So we welcome people of any age, ethnicity, culture, faith, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation or physical capacity who connect with our values and bring something fresh to our business.
If our people become disabled, temporarily or permanently, we provide continuing employment wherever practicable in the same, or an alternative, position. We give them appropriate training and/or graduated back-to-work programmes, and enlist assistance from occupational health professionals to do this successfully.
Through our global employee networks, each of which has executive sponsorship, a formalised annual plan of activities and dedicated funding, we support and celebrate our people’s diversity.
We also nurture relationships with organisations that promote diversity in our industry. These include Code First: Girls and Stonewall, a UK-based organisation that campaigns for the equality of LGBT+ people.
We’re proud to maintain an environment free from bullying, where people of all grades and positions are treated with dignity and respect.
You will work in a purpose-led environment
We’re an organisation of positive problem-solvers united and inspired by our purpose, which is to power the pursuit of financial freedom for the ambitious.
Ambitious people all share similar characteristics, no matter where in the world they are – they’re driven and self-directed. We exist to help them in their pursuit of financial freedom, but we acknowledge that this means something different for everyone. Through innovation, we can power every ambitious person with market-leading technology, platforms, products, exchanges and educational resources.
We work towards achieving our purpose by focusing on our strategic drivers:
• Every ambitious person
• Products that power
• Inspiring experiences
• Tuned for growth
Underpinning our purpose are our core values:
• Champion the client
• Learn fast together
• Raise the bar
These values direct our strategy and are reflected in every initiative we deliver, shaping our interactions with our clients, our shareholders and our own people.
Make a difference
We’re a proudly carbon-neutral company that’s committed to creating a better world. We never stop trying to find new ways to minimise our impact on the environment and build a sustainable future. We’re also passionate about elevating the communities around us by improving social mobility and increasing the quality of education.
To help us achieve the positive change we’re striving for, we developed an ESG strategy – the Brighter Future framework – that focuses on four key areas: products, people, partnerships and best practice. We’ve set ourselves ambitious goals and targets for each area to keep ourselves accountable and ensure that our strategy remains an important part of our day-to-day activities.
Our employee-led networks support the diverse needs and interests of our people, giving everyone a safe space to connect with like-minded colleagues across the globe, share experiences and contribute to charitable causes. To support these initiatives, we have dedicated budgets and executive sponsorship, and our people get two additional days off during the year for voluntary work. Our networks include:
• IG Inspire: focuses on our women’s professional and personal development
• IG Open: supports our people who identify as LGBT+ and allies
• Black Network: facilitates a supportive, inclusive environment for our black employees
• PACT: creates a place for parents and carers to share advice and experiences
