What is it like to work at The Royal Mint?
The Royal Mint plays an integral role in the UK economy – as an employer, exporter, manufacturer and creative force. Hundreds of millions of people around the world carry our work in their pockets each day.
We think it’s a great place to work…. see what some of our employees say about working here
“The Royal Mint offers me the opportunity to combine my love of all things creative with the ability to communicate stories from one of Britain’s most prestigious companies. The world of coins is such an interesting place, I feel like I am constantly learning something new, and I take pride in being able to share that knowledge with our customers in a range of interesting formats. Video has been a great tool for us this year and I look forward to expanding that offering over the next year to come. The Royal Mint is such a diverse and fascinating workplace. One day I could be working on a campaign to launch our Wallace & Gromit 50p, the next I could be talking to bloggers or influencers about our amazing jewellery range. There’s not many places that offer you the opportunity to work on projects steeped in history such as our D-Day coin or Samuel Pepys coin, but then also to work on projects designed to future proof our organisation such as our gifting ranges and our solid gold Raris Card. Planning exciting new ventures to ensure we remain as relevant today as we were 1,100 years ago is a rare trait to find in any workplace, and one that I thrive on.”
Rachel Thomas – Communications Manager
“The Royal Mint offers a dynamic and fast-paced working environment with lots of opportunities to grow within the business and while working with high profile partners. I have learned a great deal in my time here thanks to the company’s approach to developing staff through training and by providing empowerment opportunities to manage projects and develop strategies. I think the great thing here is the culture that exists to constantly drive forward and innovate, it gives you the chance to get exposure to the latest technologies and industry best practice. The Royal Mint is always changing and innovating for the future thanks to the people who are working here and it’s a very exciting time to work amongst it.”
James Askey - Marketing Communications Campaign Team Manager
“The Royal Mint is an exciting and dynamic place to work where you’re empowered to think differently and try new things. The customer is at the heart of everything we do and you’re always encouraged to find new ways to better serve them. In under 6 months I’ve found myself frequently working from within Her Majesty’s Treasury, attending multiple meetings at the Bank of England and even a trip to the IMF in Washington D.C. I’m engaged in the Access to Cash work addressing the challenges of cash access for millions of people in the UK, something I feel is very important. The Royal Mint is reinventing itself for the 21st century and you could join me and my colleagues to become part of it.”
