The Organisation

 

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.
