Leek United Building Society is an award winning, highly admired, local mutual building society that is owned and trusted by its members and we’re on a mission to become even stronger.
We’re a great place to work too with a strong sense of family – in a recent Best Companies survey, more than 8 out of 10 colleagues said that they were proud to work for Leek United, recommending us as a great place to work. And we want to make things even better.
As part of our plans to grow and become stronger, we’re investing in changes across the business including the launch of a digital platform for our members, transforming our branch network and evolving our processes to deliver efficiencies for staff and members alike. We’re also a socially responsible employer with an unflinching focus on making a positive difference to the lives of our members, employees and the local community.
A core foundation of the Society’s strategy is to retain and grow our mortgage book and we’re now looking for a Mortgage Administrator who will provide a first-class service to our borrowers.
