Our culture

Our people are everything— to our clients, to each other, to our overall success.

We’re looking for great talent with diverse qualities— experts in their field, with creative and critical thinking skills, entrepreneurial spirit, unique perspectives and a fresh way of working with clients and each other.

We are made up of highly professional and informed individuals from different cultural backgrounds and as such we encourage and expect a mutual understanding and respect for each other.

Our people are passionate, hardworking and take pride in their work. It is this work ethos that contributes to our unique, stimulating, high-performance culture where we celebrate and encourage diversity of thought and value smart thinkers. After all, it is our people who make our business what it is!

We foster a culture of commitment, efficiency, trust and integrity which supports our solid reputation in the market place, whilst always keeping our clients’ needs central to everything we do. Underpinning this are our values of putting our clients first, passion, speed, team spirit and innovation. It’s important to us that we employ people who identify with and share our values.

We are committed to supporting equality and diversity, and seek to create a workplace that is fully inclusive. This applies to all our people whether permanent or temporary, irrespective of gender, race, ethnic origin, disability, age, nationality, national origin, sexual orientation, religion or belief, marital status and social class. Our people are treated fairly and with respect.

Ultimately, the development of our people contributes to the sustainable and stable growth of Mizuho as a whole. Our positive working environment is conducive to each employee developing their specialist knowledge and professional expertise.

Our commitment to social responsibility

We are committed to EMEA in every way – helping to ensure businesses grow, economies thrive and communities are cared for.

We recognise that community, and other socially responsible, initiatives help contribute to the sustainable development of society and provide the platform for creating and advancing corporate value. Our activities are closely aligned with Mizuho Financial Group’s CSR approach.

Across our network, we respond to local needs and work with not-for-profit and charity partners to make a difference to local communities, through skills-based and hands-on activities. A great range of initiatives are organised across EMEA, but activities include career-readiness and financial education workshops; work experience placements; and fund-raising events.

We are committed to developing our positive impact on society and we are proud to engage in Mizuho's global Mizuho Volunteer Day, an annual opportunity for employees to give back to their local communities.
