Why Work for Us
Join a Team that’s Made for Greater
“Partner” is more than a title. It’s a promise! At Northern Trust, we refer to our employees as partners for a reason—because we understand that relationships are the key to our success. Stronger partnerships don’t just feel better, they work better. They lead to more innovative ideas and better business outcomes. They foster collaboration, inclusion, and result in growth that serves everyone. We won’t ask you to pick between a dynamic career or work-life balance. Instead, we’ll work closely together to ensure you can achieve everything you want, without sacrificing the things that matter.
Pursue Your Greatest Ambitions
From continuous learning opportunities to a variety of mentorship programs, we’re helping our partners identify—and pursue—their most ambitious career goals.
Northern Trust University
Northern Trust University (NTU) is our virtual platform for your learning and development needs. NTU has a robust library of offerings to help you develop professional, management, leadership, technology, and job-specific skills and knowledge.
Business Resource Councils
The business resource councils are employee-led resource groups that provide tools and resources to support the development of an inclusive culture that values and leverages diversity, equity and inclusion to achieve and sustain superior business results.
We encourage partners to build their network and identify potential mentors, as well as to take advantage of the formal local mentoring programs available in a number of our offices.
Grow your career in a culture of care
Taking care of yourself is important to you—it is to us, too. We encourage partners to take advantage of the wide variety of wellbeing programs we offer to help maintain their mental, physical, and emotional health. We provide activities, tools, and resources to help you stay engaged at work and at home, along with other extras designed to help you feel your best.
