Why join 3i

3i offers a compelling range of experience, engagement, variety, reward and the opportunity to work with inspiring people.

We believe that the skills, capabilities and talents of our employees are vital to our success.

Recruiting, retaining and developing our talent is one of our most important priorities. We work towards that objective by providing training and opportunities for career advancement, rewarding our employees fairly and by encouraging employees to give direct feedback to senior management. We spend time talking to everyone at 3i about their career. We will challenge you to keep developing, to keep growing with us and to keep increasing your value to the business.

Our culture

With fewer than 250 employees, we benefit from an open culture of communication and a flat organisational structure. We are a meritocracy and our employees are recruited, promoted and rewarded on the basis of merit, ability and performance. We recognise the importance of nurturing the wellbeing and satisfaction of our employees by providing a supportive working environment and a healthy work/life balance.

What we offer

We offer a variety of formal and informal benefits including family friendly benefits, private medical insurance and health screening, life insurance and retirement provisions. We are focused on the health and wellbeing of our employees and this year, we introduced the services of a personal fitness adviser for our London-based employees, offering free of charge one-to-one fitness and wellness advice as well as free twice-weekly fitness classes.

Diversity and inclusion

3i is committed to building a diverse workforce.  Varied backgrounds, experiences and views bring a diversity of perspectives which in turn lead to more informed decisions and better investments.

We seek to create, through our culture, policies and practices, a work environment that helps to bring out the best in our employees and to ensure all are treated fairly and are offered equal opportunity in selection, training, career development, promotion and remuneration.  We are committed to providing our employees with the opportunities, experience and training to achieve their potential and grow their knowledge, skills and capabilities.

Enabling our business and our industry to eliminate discrimination and become more diverse and inclusive is a clear priority for us. Examples of some of the ways we are delivering this include:

  • through our inclusive values and culture
  • treating all those with whom we come in to contact with respect
  • strong, consistent and fair recruitment process 
  • excellent training programmes, including unconscious bias training for managers
  • leadership training 
  • Level 20 sponsors
  • #100Blackintern sponsors
  • Career Ready mentor programme
  • ongoing commitment to support local charities
