Leeds Building Society is the UK’s fifth largest building society. Set up in 1875, we’re a mutual, which means we’re owned by our 719,000 members across the UK, and our decisions are always made in their best interests.
For more than 145 years we’ve been helping our members to save money and to buy their own home. This is still at the heart of our purpose – to put home ownership within reach of more people, generation after generation.
Even though the foundation of our business remains the same and will in the future, we need to do things differently to keep pace with the competition and look after our members. We have ambitious plans to transform, innovate and modernise the Society which are guided by our financial strength and security.
Our colleagues are already playing an integral role in transforming the Society. We challenge them to:
- push forward
- be curious
- have the right conversations
- focus on what matters
By showing these behaviours, colleagues are actively contributing to the forward-thinking ambitions of the Society whilst being supported to continually develop their personal aspirations. Having an engaged team is crucial to what we do, and we’re extremely proud of our 3 Star Best Companies accreditation in February 2022. This is the highest rating awarded by Best Companies and recognises our ‘world-class’ levels of colleague engagement.
Digital and Tech Opportunities
When it comes to tech and digital, our outlook is future-facing, so we need great people to help us to digitally transform our business. We’re already on an exciting journey towards building a sustainable technology platform, and we’ve adopted agile and product-based delivery to deliver a rapid transformation capability.
To help our colleagues deliver our purpose, ensuring they have the right environment to do their job well is important. Our brand-new, sustainable head office, with collaboration spaces throughout, in Leeds city centre supports a hybrid working model. Find out more about what its like to work with us below:
