WHY THEY ARE WORKING WITH US
GAM Investments has Growth, Efficiency and Transparency at the heart of its goals and pledges to support and enhance diversity and inclusion. GAM’s board is comprised of over 57% women. Peter Sanderson, CEO, is an authentic champion of diversity and inclusion and has added 4 women to his Senior Leadership team in this past year, taking the total representation of women on the SLT to 28%.
GAM Investments understands that business goals will be far better achieved if greater cognitive diversity is achieved within the firm’s employee population. GAM wants to focus on specifically sourcing talent from the broadest pool of people who may have taken time out from their careers or who may have dialled down their career for a time who would like to now reignite. GAM Investments is fully supportive of hybrid working and their teams currently working either from home or from one of their global offices.
GAM recognises Inclusivity as specialists in helping skilled professionals return or reignite their careers. Inclusivity offers coaching and training support when you start in your new role, and we also work closely with GAM’s internal management team and deliver training to ensure your transition into the business is as enjoyable and smooth as possible.
DEBBIE DALZELL’S RETURN TO WORK STORY
Debbie Dalzell is the Global HR Director at GAM. We loved speaking with Debbie and understanding her return to her career after her own career break.
What is your current position?
I am the Global Head of Human Resources for GAM Investments and lead a team of 20 with the mission to attract, develop and retain the brightest minds in the asset management industry.
How is your working week/day structured?
We have adopted a fully agile working policy at GAM Investments. We are all able to work remotely for at least part of the week and personal preference is supported. Some of us have returned to the office now – I tend to go into the office one or two days per week and then I work from home for the rest of the time. I feel extremely lucky to have such a huge element of choice about where I work. I have three school age children and so the early mornings are a flurry of school runs and then I am at my desk by 8.30am.
We are working with GAM to ensure that as and when they have vacancies they are able to reach diverse talent pools. Our role is to ensure they know about you!
Please do submit an expression of interest if you have the following:
- Experience in asset management / funds industry / investment banking
- Are able to work 4 or 5 days a week

- Asset/Fund/Portfolio Management
