There's more to life than work


Bank of Ireland's purpose is to enable our customers, colleagues and communities to thrive. At the heart of this purpose is our commitment to Inclusion & Diversity: To foster an inclusive working environment where all colleagues are enabled to reach their full potential. This potential is seen in not only career development for all colleagues, but also support for personal wellbeing. In order to drive our progress in Inclusion and Diversity, communities of colleagues have organised six Employee Support Networks to promote inclusion, diversity and representation of the interests of specific communities.

Outside of your day to day role, there are many ways to get involved in colleague activities such as Couch to 5K, sports and social clubs, and even Table Tennis tournaments!

You get a lot. You give a lot too.


Our colleagues have always been keen to support their favourite charities and good causes, through local initiatives or large-scale events.

Our charity and community investment programme, Give Together, supports colleagues who wish to fundraise or volunteer for important causes in their lives. They can avail of one day’s paid leave each year to volunteer and can also apply to have any fundraising matched up to certain limits.

Bank of Ireland colleagues volunteer over 1,000 days annually, and generate millions of euro in matched fundraising, payroll giving and other charitable contributions.
