Bank of EnglandBank of England

As the country’s central bank, the Bank of England play a fundamental role in the UK economy - ensuring monetary stability and contributing to financial stability. Their work is challenging, high profile, and truly fascinating. It has an impact on the entire nation.

They set monetary policy to control inflation and devise economic policy. They're also involved in a broad range of other activities too, some of which include working with the government and other banks.

And in 2013, the government plans for the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) to be established as part of the Bank of England, to promote the safety and security of banks and insurance companies.

Meeting challenges takes innovative thinking and an intensely collaborative approach. Upon joining, many people are surprised by just how friendly, welcoming, and open their environment is. It’s not the only surprising thing about the Bank of England. So take a closer look, and see the Bank differently.
