Our journey is an exciting one - founded in 1884, we’re still growing, thriving and protecting the interests of our members. We’re currently the 8th largest lender in the UK, with more than 2,500 employees.

We’re proud to be a building society and part of our vision is to be as simple and straightforward as possible and there are plenty of opportunities to work with us and make things happen.

We’re always looking for talented people to join us. But it’s important that our people aren’t just brilliant at what they do – we need them to share our values and understand that working here is all about putting members first.

You bring the potential - we help you realise it.
It’s the way work should be.

Our benefits

We care about our people and we’ve created an environment where our employees enjoy coming to work. We encourage and support people to strike a healthy balance between work and home life. And we’re constantly improving things to make sure everyone feels valued.

We offer plenty of benefits in addition to salary. We know that different people will want different benefits so we offer a wide range, including:

A place to belong

Creating a place where everyone has a sense of ‘belonging’ is important to us and we recognise that everyone is different. No matter where you are in your career at the Society we’ve created an environment where you can bring your whole self to work.

How do we do this?

We’ve developed a number of initiatives to support our people in work and outside of work:

  • our mental health commitment and mental health first aiders
  • wellbeing at work passport to support people who need adjustments in the workplace whether for a condition or religious observances
  • My Family policy that offers enhanced pay for when you’re becoming a parent
  • Carer’s flexibility policy where you can get up to 3 days’ paid leave to support a parent or child through the moments that matter.
  • Empower leadership development programme to support the development of everyone across the organisation particularly our female talent.

These are just a few of the great things we’re doing to encourage a culture of belonging.

Our Diversity Steering Group is made up of a number of executives across the Society who sponsor and govern our diversity and inclusion strategy. We also have a number of passionate people who are part of the diversity and inclusion working groups who support the plan and drive initiatives within their areas and develop ideas to facilitate an inclusive environment.

    The Sunday Times 25 Best Big Companies – 2020

    We’ve been placed second in The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2020. We see employee engagement as going hand-in-hand with our commitment to putting members first – by making sure our people are engaged and happy in their work, they will be motivated to do the best job they can for our members. However, we recognise that there’s still work to be done, and we're committed to making changes to ensure that our employees are engaged with us both now and in the future.

Wellbeing

We know that salary and benefits alone aren’t everything – it’s just as important to us that our people are happy at work.

For us, wellbeing is about much more than complying with legislation. We want to go far beyond this and create a working environment where you can flourish and feel comfortable, healthy and happy - that’s the way work should be.

Our wellbeing strategy is centred on the three pillars of Mind, Body and Spirit.

‘Mind’ focusses on emotional and mental wellbeing and we support and seek ways to enhance this for everyone. We recognise that a broad range of factors can influence emotional wellbeing and for this reason, our programme covers a diverse range of areas such as learning, flexible working and mental health.

‘Body’ centres on physical activity and includes hydration, diet and fitness. We encourage our employees to take regular breaks away from their desks and we provide a number of spaces at each location for eating, socialising or even playing table tennis! We also provide free fruit in head office locations, milk for tea and coffee and squash to help you keep you healthy and hydrated.

‘Spirit’ describes the essence of our wellbeing programme, how we share our wellbeing experiences, how teams come together to determine their own wellbeing practices and how we create communities within the Society and use technology to enable this.
