    Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

      Skipton Building Society Response

      Resourcing Manager

      We’re sorry your experience working at Skipton wasn’t as positive as others have said. We’d like to reassure you that we do listen and will continue to listen to our colleagues feedback, and work hard to enable people to have confidence to share with us their honest views – good or bad. We’re really proud of our above industry average 88% Employee Engagement score but are committed to further investing in our colleagues. To address your note about upgrading our offices we have this year undertaken a significant building works project, creating a multifunctional Atrium that provides our 1,500 head office colleagues with lots of new meeting rooms and a light, modern space to facilitate informal meetings, coaching conversations and larger events. We’ve also transformed our busy café into an informal meeting area, together with upgrading all of our washroom facilities. Across our branch network we have a rolling programme of refurbishment, including our Leeds branch, which has been fully refurbished.

      Great place to work if they could work out the approach and pay.

      Pros

      Skipton in the most part is a friendly place to work, very process driven and very risk averse. The building is well maintained and the on-site cafe is fairly good.

      Cons

      Pay is not close to market rates, they rely on people who dont want to travel to Leeds or Bradford to keep wages lower than market average. There is the "Skipton shrug" the attitude that they don't do it that way so lack vision and desire to change process from how it's always been done.

      Pros

      The feeling of belonging and having an important role to play in the success of the Society. At Skipton you really feel valued, and are playing an important role in customer satisfaction. Great commute, continually improving benefits package, on site café and restaurant.

      Cons

      Salary not as high as central Leeds, but improving.
