Looking for Ipswich Building Society? You’re in the right place – we’ve changed our name! Welcome to Suffolk Building Society. Find out more.

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?

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.

Happy family sitting on the grass

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.

Life insurance

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.
