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.
This week our leaders have been exploring Unconscious Bias. But what’s it all about? Your background, personal experiences, societal stereotypes and cultural context can have an impact on your decisions and actions without you realising. Implicit or unconscious bias happens by our brains making incredibly quick judgments and assessments of people and situations without us realising.
Through forum theatre and open conversations we created a learning experience to highlight the issues and themes around Unconscious Bias and what we can do to ensure we continue to strive for a positive and inclusive culture. We’re continuing to build on this throughout 2018.
We take looking after our customers so seriously even our Chief Exec David is on the phones speaking to customers today to help ease the load!
