At this year's National Housing Awards 2017, Newbury Building Society sponsored the award for Best Small Development. So who scooped up the prize?
Newbury Building Society puts excellent customer service for our members at the centre of everything we do. We are committed to developing our people, our processes and our services to ensure our members continue to receive the right products and services that suit their needs.
We strive to motivate and engaged our staff through communicating these objectives in a variety of ways, including our quarterly Society conference call, which staff are encouraged to pose questions to our Executive Directors, a staff association committe, a monthly newsletter and an annual employee survey.
We are local
We have ten branches across Berkshire, Oxfordshire and Hampshire. Our Head Office is located in Newbury, which is the base for support teams such as Customer Services, Finance, HR and Marketing.
Newbury Building Society is committed to making a difference in the communities in which its customers and staff live and work. As well as the financial services it provides to local businesses and people, it also takes an active role in community organisations and events. Our local network of branches form a real part of the communities we serve.
There are many benefits to working for Newbury Building Society, including generous holiday entitlement, contributory stakeholder pension scheme, volunteering days and your birthday off. The benefits specific to your role are shown on your Benefits, Terms and Conditions when you join.
Putting families first
Our business is about helping local families to buy their homes and save for their futures. The same goes for our staff. Our flexible approach enables our staff to combine work with family, including full time, part time, permanent, temporary opportunities.
A good team is stronger than the sum of its individual members. We work hard to create a supportive, friendly environment: in branch, at head office and outside work in our busy social calendar, we have an active Staff Association who organise a number of social and fund-raising events for our staff.
