I worked at Skipton Building Society full-time (More than 10 years)
Great cultural, promote from within, plenty of opportunities for training and advancement.
Flat structures and family atmosphere. Very caring of staff at all levels. Everyone on first names even top management.
Out in the middle of nowhere.
Need to work hard, but will be rewarded.
Advice to Management
I applied in-person. I interviewed at Skipton Building Society.
Applied for role by emailing the interviewer director.Heard back within a couple of days that they would be in touch with an interview date, then 2 weeks later had the date set for a further week later. Initial interview with two people, but had not been told this would be the case before attending.
Today between 9am-12.45pm the Pension Awareness tour bus will be visiting our head office. The campaign aims to spread the word that retirement is important, and should be talked about more openly. Colleagues are invited to come aboard the bus, where they will find giveaways, interactive games and experts on hand to answer any questions they might have.
