Parental Choice collaborates with Northern Trust to offer Tailored Childcare Support to help those with childcare responsibilities at Northern Trust’s London office

Northern Trust, a leading global financial services organization, is enhancing its support for employees with childcare responsibilities in its London office by partnering with Parental Choice to offer bespoke childcare support and advice. The extra support will cover tailored childcare searches for all ages across all forms of childcare (nurseries, schools, childminders and nannies etc.) as well as payroll, pension and employment law assistance for those employing nannies. It also offers talks aimed specifically at parents and those with childcare responsibilities.

“We know that parents and those with childcare responsibilities face a particular challenge in trying to maintain a strong work-life balance and searching for a good nursery, school or other childcare options can feel an overwhelming task on an already long and never-ending to-do list.  We’re delighted to be partnering with Parental Choice to offer our employees at Northern Trust in London a helping hand through their search services and by offering a host of interesting seminars to help our employees with children manage these responsibilities alongside their careers.” – Sarah Boddey, Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, Northern Trust Europe, Middle East (EMEA) and Africa & Asia Pacific (APAC)

“We are constantly striving to attract, retain and advance a diverse workforce at Northern Trust so that we can better meet the needs of the clients and communities we serve. We want to ensure we are doing all we can at Northern Trust so that those caring for children have the support and tools they need to navigate their careers and childcare responsibilities successfully.” – Mark Lacey, Head of Human Resources, Northern Trust EMEA

Northern Trust currently provides maternity, paternity, adoption and shared parental leave and flexible working policies as well as maternity and paternity coaching sessions, free back-up childcare sessions and a suite of seminars on a variety of parenting topics. The firm is also a strong supporter of the Working Families “Happy to Talk Flexible” campaign. Its partnership with Parental Choice will enable it to offer targeted personalized support to help those with childcare responsibilities find the appropriate childcare arrangements.
