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

  • Attentive - creating an environment where your potential is recognised and results in opportunity.
  • Reliable - serving the interests of our members, your colleagues and the community.

    The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For - 2017

    We were delighted to be awarded 73rd place in The Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For in 2017. 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.

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:

  • Annual 'Success Share' bonus scheme
  • Group personal pension plan
  • Private medical insurance
  • Life assurance
  • Childcare scheme and vouchers
  • Buy additional annual leave
  • Eye care vouchers

Our employees can also take advantage of offers and vouchers for a range of items - from sports events and days out to holidays, shopping vouchers and cinema tickets.

We listen to what people want and we’re always improving, making sure everyone can develop both at work and personally.

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.

Equality, diversity and inclusion

Different people bring different ideas, skills and perspectives. And, we’re better equipped to put members first if we have a diverse workforce of talented people, representative of the communities we live and work in.

We want everyone who works at Coventry Building Society to feel engaged, valued and respected. We’re proud of our commitment to diversity and we know it’s important to be upfront and share our strategy to ensure it translates fully into our everyday lives and really makes a difference.
