Top firms and taxman makes it into The Times Top 50 employers for women

THE BIG FOUR has made it into The Times’ Top 50 Employers for Women league table with HM Revenue & Customs also making an appearance.

The table, which was published this week, is compiled in partnership with Opportunity Now, a gender equality campaign by Business in the Community.

This is the second year that the top firms and the taxman have made it onto the list. However, in 2011, Ernst & Young and HMRC failed to make an appearance.

Liz Bingham, Ernst & Young’s managing partner for people in the UK & Ireland said: “Diversity is a business imperative. As well as being the right thing to do, we believe that by attracting and retaining the best talent and developing our people, we will ultimately deliver a better service to our clients.

“To be listed as a top employer for women is a tremendous achievement. I’m incredibly proud of the progress we have made to date and am confident that we will continue to innovate in the future.”
