About Microsoft UK

Want to make a difference? So do we. Join a team that makes empowering others a top priority.


Our mission is to empower every person and every organisation on the planet to achieve more. We are passionate about driving advances in cloud computing, developing new ways for people to interact with technology at home, at work and on the move, while transforming education and public services and supporting the UK economy.

In over 20 years of committed diversity and inclusion efforts, we've learned that diversity is not a finite goal; it is a journey that requires constant self-assessment and recommitment.


"I am 100 percent committed to Diversity and Inclusion at the core of our culture and company. Microsoft has to be a great place to work for everybody. I deeply desire a vibrant culture of inclusion. I envision a company composed of more diverse talent. I envision more diverse executive staff and a more diverse Senior Leadership Team. Most of all, I envision a company that builds products that an expansive set of diverse and global customers love. As we make Diversity and Inclusion central to Microsoft's business, we have the opportunity to spark change across the industry as well. This is the accountability the Senior Leadership Team and I own." -Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft
