A culture of empowerment.
We take great pride in our unique work culture. Colleagues enjoy collaboration with close-knit teams in friendly, inclusive work environments. As an early career professional, you are encouraged to explore new paths of growth to assure you are accelerating your own unique potential. Joining our team is an opportunity to feel empowered to make an impact within the organization as well as in our surrounding communities.
These are just some of the ways life at Citizens stands out from the rest.
Serving our communities starts with a diverse workforce.
We are an inclusive culture of professionals from all backgrounds and cultures. We understand that diverse recruitment promotes successful business and growth amongst our colleagues and the communities we serve.
Our Diversity Recruitment Council was formed to develop and implement recruiting strategies that are proactive and far-reaching to encompass five key areas of diversity: People of Color, Women, Veterans, LGBT and Individuals with Disabilities. We are proud to have strategic partnerships with over 35 community based and diversity-focused organizations. Additionally, Citizens participates in numerous diversity recruitment engagement events, which helps promote our jobs to diverse candidates.
Citizens is credited with a number of workplace awards for their support in building a diversified workforce, including:
- 2015 Black EOE Journal “Best of the Best”
- 2015 Hispanic Network Magazine “Best of the Best”
- 2015 GI Jobs Military Friendly Employer.

Our work-life balance, which encourages taking some of the work out of life, allows colleagues to be more effective and make a lasting impact as they challenge themselves each day, in and out of the office.
We offer remote working options for some colleagues, depending on the role. Citizens is also very generous with their Paid Time Off (PTO) and encourages colleagues to take their vacation days. We also believe that a balanced and rewarding life should include involvement in the community. Colleagues are urged to take advantage of the many work-sponsored volunteer opportunities, both one-time and ongoing, offered through the Citizens Bank Giving Portal and log their hours spent volunteering.
As a large regional bank, Citizens Bank has retail operations across 13 states, predominantly located in the Northeast and tri-state areas, and is headquartered in Providence, RI. We have call centers in Pittsburgh, PA and Cranston, RI, corporate offices in Rhode Island and Dedham, MA and commercial banking offices in Boston.
Citizens Bank is also constructing a brand new campus in Johnston, RI, expected to open in 2018. The facility will house over 3,000 and presents colleagues the unique opportunity to collaborate in an interactive and innovative environment. The new campus is expected to have a fitness center and sports fields, so colleagues can maintain a healthy and active lifestyle, as well as scenic walking trails for colleagues to enjoy the serene, natural surroundings.
