As one of the UK’s largest building societies, we’re dedicated to helping our customers plan for their life ahead.

Our vision is to build a better society. This is why we exist and were originally established by our founders as a mutual building society in 1853 – and that vision remains true to this day. You won’t just find details of roles and careers on our site, you’ll learn about our culture and values, the huge number of opportunities open to you and the level of support we’ll offer to help you achieve.

At Skipton, it’s all about our customers. Our top priority is being right here to help them plan for a better life ahead.

You might be surprised to hear we’ve been doing this for over 160 years, and we help over 850,000 people to make the most of their money. We’ve got bags of experience, coupled with brilliant teams that are right here to help too.

When it comes to what we offer, we like to keep things simple and stick to what we’re good at. We’ve got a range of great value solutions – from everyday savings and mortgages, more complex investment advice, through to planning for retirement and beyond.

And we’re just as focused on our colleagues as we are our customers and creating the right environment for everyone to perform at their best is key. As well as excellent reward and recognition, our open and inclusive culture inspires our people to achieve more and encourages them to challenge the way we do things.

At Skipton everyone can make a difference and it’s our people who make it possible to consistently deliver a great customer experience.
