Our people

We’re proud of the people who work at Skipton Building Society. With their enthusiasm and dedication to customers, our colleagues strive to provide excellent customer service. Plainly and simply, without them, Skipton wouldn’t be Skipton.

That’s why we’re committed to creating a working environment where everyone has an equal opportunity to thrive and be happy. Scroll down this page to find out how we are encouraging and supporting a culture which promotes diversity, encourages healthy bodies and minds, and hopes to inspire the next generation.

Our culture and values

Our culture’s evolved into one that’s uniquely Skipton thanks to the enthusiasm and individuality of our colleagues and their commitment to our values, which are Trust, Ownership and One Team. Our colleagues are proud to work for Skipton - we’re on the Sunday Times Top 100 Companies to work for list and we’re one of only a handful of accredited organisations in the UK to achieve Investors in People platinum status.

Diversity and Inclusion

Encouraging a diverse and inclusive culture is a really important part of our core values. We appreciate the value our colleagues’ unique differences can bring. We seek to attract, develop and keep hold of talented people who, together, will help us build a stronger Society that’s able to help our customers today and in the future.

We're working towards creating a better future. One where our communities, our customers and our colleagues can all thrive. When we welcome a new colleague into the Society, we aim to look at their potential as much as their ability. Through apprenticeships, internally designed leadership courses and programmes to aid in skills development, we give our people the tools to help grow and develop their careers.

I really enjoy my role because no two appointments are the same. I love getting to know our customers, hearing about their families, holidays, aspirations and dreams. It’s so rewarding when we can help them. Skipton is a wonderful place to work and there’s great scope for progression.

Reward and recognition

Our reward practices help us attract and retain talented people, while rewarding people fairly for their contribution and promoting a positive and inclusive culture. Our people do great work both within the Society and out in our communities. We’ve won numerous awards in recognition of these achievements and, in turn, we like to recognise those colleagues who have gone the extra mile.
