Charlotte Allen

Global Attraction & Engagement – Diversity & Inclusion Manager, AMS onsite at Barclays


Global Recruitment Attraction Manager, with a current focus on the global diversity & inclusion strategy for talent acquisition. My role is to look at the end to end candidate journey and ensure that inclusive recruitment is fundamental to all steps in that process.

My career has been built within financial services, as a sourcer and a recruiter, and recently within the Attraction space. I have been focussing on hard to fill roles within Investment Banking, to specialist tech roles as well as high volume contact centre campaigns – with a D&I lens across all campaigns.

I manage a team of Diversity & Inclusion Specialists as well as Project Management support providing governance across the whole account, and I also have a focus on recruitment technology, including Avature & Eightfold.

Diversity & Inclusion are a huge part of my role from both a client and also internal perspective. I am a D&I ambassador for AMS, with a focus on gender equality.
