There’s more to life than how much you can make. With a charity support account you’ll be able to bask in that feel good glow that only comes when you’re helping others. when you’re helping others.
So much more
than just work.
A career with Suffolk Building Society is much more than a job. But then, we are much more than just a mortgage and savings business.
Unlike banks, we have no shareholders. Instead we have over 60,000 members, all with an equal say in how we’re run. It makes us a very democratic organisation, and one for whom values are as influential as rules.
Why work with us?
Charity support savings
It’s never too early to help your child on the road to financial freedom. Whether they’re a pocket money splurger or a spare change stasher, we have a range of accounts to make it as easy as possible.
If you’re looking to start saving or want to put aside some spare cash each month a regular saver account could help. You’ll be able to invest a monthly set amount, then sit back and watch your savings grow.
If you are looking for an efficient way to earn interest, an Individual Savings Account (ISA) is tax free – even if you have exceeded your Personal Savings Allowance.
If you don’t need repeated, instant access to your funds a limited access savings account could be the answer.
Generally these accounts offer a higher rate of interest than instant access savings, but in return will mean there will be restrictions when it comes to accessing your funds.
Fixed rate bonds
You know where you are with a fixed rate bond. The interest rate you get for your savings won’t go up or down for the duration of your savings product, so you can get on with life and let the interest grow.
If you need access to your funds you may be considering an easy access savings account. This means you’ll be able to withdraw money without notice, with our accounts offering either unlimited access or a certain number of withdrawals per year.
Real career progression
We offer full on the job training and volunteering opportunities to help develop your career. With a breadth of roles through the branch network and at head office, your first job with us really could take you anywhere.
Holiday and work life balance
23 days annual leave (plus of course 8 Bank Holidays), depending on your job grade which increases the longer you’re at the Society – up to 33 days. We believe in work-life balance and are always happy to discuss flexible working patterns.
An inclusive and positive culture
We’ve been a Mutual organisation for over 170 years. We’re owned by our members, which means no shareholders – and we exist to serve our members by providing a safe home for their savings, and safe homes for people. A culture of respect and appreciation underpins everything we do.
Our pension scheme includes employer contributions above the statutory minimum, and that can increase as you develop your career. We also offer you an independent financial advisor who can help with your planning for the future.
We offer life cover as part of your employment with us – a great way to take care of yourself and your family while you’re working for the Society.
Healthcare and wellness
Our healthcare cash plan means you can cover the costs of some basic medical bills, book virtual GP appointments and online physiotherapy and wellbeing resources.
Working for a mutual organisation is incredibly rewarding. It’s knowing that investing in communities, and looking after employees, isn’t a new initiative or about keeping up with the latest fad – it’s why Suffolk Building Society was founded back in 1849. To play a small part in the successful organisation it is today makes me very proud.
As a junior member of staff I have been supported in developing my skillset through an Apprenticeship. This opportunity to complete a qualification alongside real work experience has been invaluable to my progress in financial services. I cannot recommend Suffolk Building Society enough for those beginning their careers.
