About Royal London

Royal London is the largest mutual life insurance, pensions and investment company in the UK.  Since its foundation 160 years ago, Royal London has supported millions of people to protect and provide for themselves and their families.


At Royal London, our People Promise is that we will all work somewhere inclusive, responsible, enjoyable and fulfilling. This promise has been at the heart of our approach to hybrid working, ensuing a balance of time working in our offices, supporting the culture of collaboration and inclusion and some working time from home, so we can all continue to benefit from the flexibility this brings. Our hybrid working approach is built around our mutual mindset, thinking about what is good for us as individuals (the ‘me’) and in the context of what is right for our customers, our colleagues and The Royal London group (the ‘we’). Together we belong- collaborate – learn and perform.


Our expectation is that colleagues working in hybrid roles will come into the office for 50% of their time, and the rest from home. We want to be as consistent as we can with our approach but we also appreciate some colleagues need adjustments based on personal circumstances. (e.g. to support a disability, or caring responsibility) and / or may wish to formally seek a flexible working pattern in line with our flexible working policy.


We appreciate the world of work continues to evolve and we will continue to listen to our colleagues views on this whilst ensuring our on-going approach is right for our business and customers
