Diversity and inclusion
Our commitment to making the NAO a more diverse and inclusive organisation is an integral part of who we are and reflects our core values. To ensure we remain a high-performing organisation we recruit, retain and develop people with a diverse mix of skills and experience.
Our Diversity and Inclusion Strategy 2021-2025 focuses on building a robust pipeline of diverse talent and a culture of fairness and inclusion.
Our 2022 diversity pay gap report describes our disability pay gap, ethnicity pay gap and gender pay gap, and outlines the actions we are taking to close our pay gaps.
You can also read our previous diversity pay gap reports.
Corporate social responsibility
For us, corporate social responsibility means playing a broader role in the communities in which we live beyond our work to help improve public services through our high-quality audits. We do this through community investment programmes and the direct efforts of our employees.
Motiv8 Mentoring is a mentoring scheme for sixth form students at Lambeth Academy and St Marylebone School, created by the National Audit Office in partnership with both schools.
The scheme provides students with mentoring support and encouragement as they work towards their A level or BTEC qualifications and think about their next steps. All mentors are volunteers from the NAO and represent a wide range of professions such as accountancy, research, IT, graphic design, communications, media, HR and business management.
We are also involved with a school reading and numeracy scheme and serving meals to the homeless.
