About us

We’re proud to be leading the way

Our culture and history

BNP Paribas has been serving clients for almost two centuries. We can trace our origins back through a series of mergers between European banks, all of which had long histories – the earliest dating back to 1848. Today’s BNP Paribas was the result of a merger between Banque Nationale de Paris (BNP) and Paribas (formerly Banque de Paris et des Pays-Bas) in 2000. Since then, we’ve become a European Group with international scale and a strong tradition of serving both individuals and companies. In fact, our client list is as varied as it is impressive. Our customers come to us for outstanding service and unwavering client focus. We believe that diversity is the key to meeting their needs, driving success and innovation. That means we take on-board different viewpoints, value individual expression and give our employees freedom, responsibility and room to grow. Development and success are dear to everyone. We expect our people to make the most of every opportunity that is presented to them. That means we’ll support you from the moment you join. It’s our aim to help you develop the skills you’ll need to deliver for our clients, who are at the heart of everything we do. We do all this because you matter. Join our team and you will soon get a feel for our culture – and the mutual respect, collaboration and support that characterise our working environment.
