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 of being fair, independent, collaborative and authoritative. 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 2015-2018 focuses on recruiting, developing and promoting diverse talent at all levels to senior leadership; demonstrating inclusive behaviours; and promoting diversity in our work and that of all public bodies.

Our gender pay gap report details our gender pay gap and outlines the action we are taking to reduce the gap, in line with new legislation introduced in April 2017.

Corporate social responsibility

For us, corporate social responsibility means playing a broader role in the communities in which we live and work beyond what we deliver to help the nation spend wisely. We do this through community investment programmes and the direct efforts of our employees.

Motiv8 Mentoring

Motiv8 Mentoring is a mentoring scheme for sixth form students at Lambeth Academy, created by the National Audit Office in partnership with Lambeth Academy.

The scheme provides students with mentoring support and encouragement as they work towards their AS/A2 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.
