BlueBay’s success depends on its ability to attract, retain and motivate highly-talented individuals. We have a diverse workforce and aim to ensure that everyone benefits from a working environment that positively contributes to their wellbeing.
BlueBay's UK Employee Handbook incorporates BlueBay's workplace and staff-related policies.
Equal Opportunities, Harassment and Discrimination
BlueBay is an equal opportunities employer and fully supports the rights and opportunities of all people to seek, obtain and hold employment without discrimination. We will take steps to ensure that all aspects of your employment with us, including job applications, are governed by merit, competence, suitability and qualifications and we will not be influenced in any manner by a person's gender, sexual orientation, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity status, gender reassignment, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, disability, age or fixed term or part-time status.
It is our policy to make every effort to provide a working environment free from discrimination, harassment, victimisation and intimidation on the basis of the protected characteristics set out above. In relation to disabled members of staff, this includes a policy to make reasonable adjustments where necessary.
The principle of non-discrimination and equality of opportunity applies equally to the treatment of former staff, visitors, clients, customers and suppliers by members of our current workforce.

Respecting Human Rights
BlueBay is committed to respecting the human rights of our people and ensuring that our internal policies promote this commitment.
BlueBay currently has in place a number of arrangements for the benefit of its staff. These benefits include those related to pensions, private medical, life assurance, adoption leave, flexible working, and employee referral schemes.
Training and Development
We want all our staff to feel encouraged to continuously develop their skills and update their knowledge in order to make the best possible contribution to BlueBay. As part of their annual performance and development planning review, all members of staff are encouraged to have a development plan that links to their objectives.
Staff Health and Wellbeing
For BlueBay, as for the majority of financial service companies, our main asset is our people. We aim to ensure that all staff members benefit from a working environment that positively contributes to a sense of belonging and wellbeing. We seek to operate fair employment practices by creating an enjoyable atmosphere and high standards of working conditions. We strive to be responsive and flexible to the legitimate needs and demands of all members of staff.
BlueBay expects all staff members to enjoy a healthy balance between time spent at work (or working from home) and the rest of their time. BlueBay operates a flexible working policy together with maternity and paternity leave, parental leave, family emergency leave, compassionate leave and opportunities for unpaid leave on a discretionary and exceptional basis.
BlueBay will aim to take appropriate preventative measures to avoid workplace stress where reasonably practicable by promoting its staff wellbeing.
BlueBay conducts regular staff surveys. These surveys are undertaken in conjunction with an external third party organisation. The results are important for us when reviewing the effectiveness of our staff practices and identifying future areas for focus. Some results from our 2017 survey demonstrated positive engagement:
