Our Culture and Value Proposition
How do Janus Henderson’s people describe our culture? The below graphic captures what our people have to say about their work experience, sourced from our most recent Employee Survey feedback. The larger the word, the more frequently it was referenced.
Our Employee Value Proposition (EVP)
Janus Henderson is more than a job – it’s about Connecting You To What Matters.
The EVP was developed based on careful analysis of survey data and global stakeholder conversations about the work experience this firm offers. The common themes that emerged during the development process represent the four pillars of our EVP: People, Purpose, Opportunity and Way of Life. Each pillar is defined and lists the actions and commitments that bring our EVP to life. This reinforces to every current employee what we stand for and what you can expect and align to when joining this firm – regardless of job function or office location.

To further support our vision, we host sessions where representatives from all areas of the business voice their opinions, as well as collaborate with our Regional Councils and Employee Resource Groups to identify opportunities for enhancing marketplace competitiveness and ensure policies and benefits support workplace inclusiveness.

The Janus Henderson Trainee Program is the golden ticket to the asset management industry. I am very grateful to have been selected for this prestigious programme and the opportunity I have been given to achieve my ambitions. The programme offers the right degree of formal learning and on-the-job training, which significantly aids and deepens your overall understanding. I feel confident that by the end of the scheme I will have gained much professionally and made important connections with my colleagues.”

The Apprenticeship Programme is designed to broaden the talent pool at the grassroots level by creating more opportunities in the investment management industry for young people from different backgrounds. Rather than assessing academic qualifications, candidates are recruited based on their drive to succeed and desire to learn.
Making the transition from the Civil Engineering industry to the Asset Management industry was made possible through the Janus Henderson Apprenticeship Programme. The Apprenticeship gave me the opportunity to learn key skills through studying for the qualification and taking exams, while gaining practical industry experience at the same time. Since joining the programme, I have progressed quickly due to the support I received from the amazing teams here, the training offered, and the time invested into my development. It is thanks to them that I was offered a permanent position at Janus Henderson before the end date of my contract. Being an Apprentice at Janus Henderson provided numerous opportunities for personal growth and career development, and for me personally I would say it is one of the best career decisions I have ever made.”
