Change department…

Proud of our strong financial position

We’re the team that keep the Coventry in a strong financial position, managing budgets and forecasting for future changes.

We’re arranged into a number of teams:

  • Financial Reporting produces information for our annual report and accounts, as well as providing reports to our regulators including the Prudential Regulation Authority, the Financial Conduct Authority, and HMRC.
  • Financial Management provides overall budgets and forecasts.
  • Financial Planning looks at the bigger picture of how the Coventry works and creates the strategies to make sure we continue to put our members first.
  • Cost Reporting make sure our Management Expense Ratio (MER) continues to be the lowest in the sector – something we’re really proud of.
  • Capital and Liquidity planning protect members’ money by monitoring key business risks, including financial modelling, liquidity and interest rate risk.
  • Treasury makes sure we make the best use of the latest market developments and opportunities.
  • Financial Projects and Systems support the wider Finance team with change projects, ensuring our systems are fit-for-purpose.

A role in Finance lets you work with the whole organisation. It also gives you the opportunity to widen your transferable knowledge and skill set. We’re committed to supporting team members to develop and encourage studying for professional accounting qualifications such as AAT, ATT, CIMA or ACCA.

Whether you’re just starting out in your career or you already have existing skills and experience, join our team and we’ll give you the busy, thriving environment you need to grow.

    This kind of culture doesn’t just happen overnight – it comes from the top and it’s been a pivotal part of the organisation for many years.

    Emma - Compliance

  • I started working at the Coventry as a Saturday Customer Service Assistant, I’m now a Customer Service Specialist and I’ve just started on the Management Development Programme, which is designed to help enhance my leadership skills.

    Every day is different. I come to work smiling and I leave smiling. Making a difference to our members motivates me to come to work each morning. I’m helping people and I get so much satisfaction out of it, whether I’m opening an account for a customer or supporting them with a complex transaction, our members really appreciate us.

    We are so invested in community work too. In our branch alone, we’ve raised almost £20,000 for our community partner. We have the most amazing customer base. They’re so generous – they’re as passionate about the charity as we are.

    Jess - Branch Network

  • Starting out in our Savings Operations team, I quickly progressed in to our Quality Assurance team, then into Customer Relations.

    I studied Accountancy at University and always wanted to work in Finance, so when a role came up I knew I wanted to apply…now I’m a Cost and Management Accountant.

    My job is so varied. If I was talking to someone about a career here, I’d say... "you'll definitely find an area you enjoy".

    I was offered study support so I could gain my professional finance qualification. It was hard work, it was worth it though! They’re really supportive of people studying, training and going through exams. I came joint tenth overall in the world and now I’m qualified. Not only that, I’ve got brilliant experience from the ground up so I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    What excites me about my role is that we’re so engaged with the whole Society and we’re looking to the future, rather than just dealing with historical numbers. I love asking questions like... Will this project benefit our members? What will the business benefits be? Will it make us more cost-efficient?

  • I’ve been with the Coventry for most of my career, my background is actually in Finance and whilst in this team, I was intrigued by the part that Business Change played in shaping the Society and I felt that it would be an interesting career move. After completing a secondment in Change, I took on a Trainee Business Analyst role and now I’m training to be a Project Manager.

    The Coventry makes a big investment in delivering a fantastic customer experience and understanding the wider impact each project has is critical. Getting things right for our members is the most important thing.

    Working in Business Change has taught me so much and helped me develop transferrable skills, such as analysis and decision making, project management, report writing and managing stakeholders. These are all qualities I feel I could take to any part of our business.

    I know I still have a lot to learn but I’m focused on becoming a fully-fledged Project Manager and I know the Coventry will support me to get there.
