Leek United Building Society is a highly admired financial services provider, strong, independent and deeply committed to its mutual status. And we’re investing in becoming even stronger.

It’s our focus on providing exceptional service that makes us stand out – more than 95% of our customers are satisfied with their experience of the Society. And we’re a super place to work with a strong sense of fun and family – in a recent Best Companies survey, more than 8 out of 10 colleagues said they were proud to work for us and would recommend us as a great place to work.

We’ve started a significant and exciting programme of investment in our people, technology and processes and this role represents a critical appointment for us as we progress our journey. Not least as we’ll be transforming the way we do business with both our mortgage and savings customers.

  • To produce management information to support the management of the Mortgage, Savings and Insurance book.
  • To keep up to date with any changes in the Mortgage, Savings and Insurance market that could affect the Society’s range of products or could offer an opportunity.
  • To carry out testing on new products ensuring all testing is documented accordingly.
  • To deputise for the Product and Propositions Manager when required.
