Between March and September last year staff at Blackstone's UK office in London raised more than £200,000 for NHS workers, food re-distribution centres, schools and other organisations through activities including sponsored runs and socials.

One of the world's leading investment firms, Blackstone seeks to create positive economic impact and long-term value for its investors, the companies they invest in and the communities in which they work. When the firm's annual Spring Volunteer Day was cancelled due to the pandemic, its charitable foundation donated £6,000 to each charity due to take part. Blackstone also encourages all staff to take part in its annual Season of Service, which took place virtually last year, and gives them two paid days a year to support its charity partners.

Founded in 1985, the firm headquartered in New York, employs more than 3,000 employees in 24 offices worldwide and with $584 billion in assets under management the culture is based on teamwork, employee collaborations and the sharing of ideas. Managers work closely with their teams ensuring that employees at every level understand their objectives and how they are expected to contribute to developing and achieving them.

The firm created Blackstone TV, which features a global call every Monday in which the leadership team share valuable insights and updates to motivate, inspire and ensure all employees feel connected.

As well as challenging and stimulating work Blackstone offers a wide range of learning and professional development opportunities, both formally and informally, including mentorships.
