I have been working at Skipton Building Society part-time (More than 5 years)
Feeling valued as an individual, the strong values and investment in employee well being, development opportunities, the "everyone counts" culture, great employee benefits, flexibility in working, lovely location of Head Office
So many facilities on-site mean its easy to forget to go outside at lunchtime.
Advice to Management
Keep listening to your employees, they have passion for what they do and believe in the values of Skipton. Thank you for having the trust in all that work at Skipton and helping us all make a difference both in our working roles and investing in our community.
I applied online. I interviewed at Skipton Building Society (Bolton, England) in April 2018.
The interview process was a series of online tests, then a telephone interview, then another online personality test and then an interview in branch lasting about an hour. The tests consisted of Maths and English questions and were timed. I was then asked a series of personality questions in a telephone interview lasting about half and hour. If you pass this you are then sent a link to perform another online personality quiz before an interview with the branch manager.
