TSB fails to meet gender balance target

TSB has pushed back its target for about half of its senior jobs to be held by women by up to five years.
The bank had originally pledged to meet the target by next year, but it now says it should do so before 2025.
In fact, TSB has moved further from its target as it had 41% of women in senior roles in 2017, but only 38% this year.
The bank has, however, beaten the government's target for 33% of boards to be made up of women "with a board that is 36% female".
"TSB takes gender diversity very seriously," a spokesperson told the BBC.
"We set an initial stretching target for between 45 to 55% of our senior roles to be held by women by 2020.
"We're currently at 38% and although we are making progress, we have revised our target."
The bank said it was now tracking "interim targets" which it hoped to meet before 2025.
