Yorkshire Building Society

About YBS

One of the UK’s largest building societies, we offer all kinds of career routes from IT and Strategy to Customer Service roles in our contact centre and branches.

For over 150 years, we’ve provided real help with real life. For us, as a building society, it means helping with those big moments in life, from finding a place to call home, to saving for retirement, and everything in between.

Owned by our 3 million members, everything we do and every decision we make is for their benefit. This gives us real purpose, and we manage their £40 billion assets wisely. We shape our mortgage and savings products to meet their changing needs. And we’re investing in new tech while beginning a digital transformation journey that genuinely has diversity and inclusion at its heart. All so we can spend more time with our members and help them to manage their money more easily.

Working together as one team, our 3,500 colleagues are our heart and soul. They shape our future and they strive to deliver even better services. So, we’ll empower you to do the right thing for our members and colleagues. And we’ll provide you with all the training, support and opportunities you need to be your best.

And whether you join us at our Head Office, our contact centre or our branches, you’ll play a real part in helping to make a real difference to our members’ lives.





At YBS, you’ll find identities from all areas of life, with different cultures, beliefs, ages, outlooks and more. Just like the communities we serve.

We’re proud of our differences - they make us who we are. So, it’s important for us to always go further when it comes to inclusion and diversity. Above all, we want to make sure that decency and fairness is a reality, for everyone at every level. So, we're on a journey to creating lasting change in our workplace, with every colleague, for the community.

True to our Yorkshire roots, we’re not just saying it. We really mean it.

Here's how we bring our commitment to life...

We care about people

Caring about people means learning, understanding, and sharing what we find. So, we’ll deliver more education in schools and colleges, we’ll celebrate more events like International Women’s Day and Pride, and we’ll work harder than ever to put inclusion and diversity at the heart of everything we do.

We say it straight

We know that everyone deserves a voice. But saying it straight isn’t always as easy as it sounds. So, we’ll do whatever we can to bring people together to have inclusive and thought-provoking conversations. Through colleague networks we’ll build confidence and empathy into every conversation, and we’ll be a business that really listens to anyone who speaks up.

We reach for better

When we reach for better, we’re a better business for everyone. So, we’ll take responsibility for our actions, we’ll encourage everyone to focus on growth and self-improvement, and we’ll always challenge the way we work if we believe there’s a fairer way to do it.

We make it happen

We want to live in a world where there are no barriers to success. So, we’ll harness the power of togetherness through our colleague networks, we’ll make sure our Leadership is focused on everyone’s development, and we’ll each play our part in supporting every ambition - no matter how big or small.



Just like our members’ lives change, we understand that the benefits you want from your career might change, too.

So, we’ll value and reward your fantastic contribution with a competitive salary, an annual bonus scheme and a choice of extra benefits that will work for you - just when you need them to.

We're creating lasting change in our workplace

We promise to build an environment where everyone feels safe, trusted and valued.

We're creating lasting change with every colleague

We promise to help people to thrive, whatever their perspectives, identities, or backgrounds.

We're creating lasting change for the community

We promise to become an organisation that adds real value to the communities we love to serve.

We've set ourselves some big aims

We know what we’re already good at. But, more importantly, we know where we need to improve. So, we’ve set ourselves some big aims which will help us deliver lasting change, and we’re already working hard to meet them.

For example, we're aiming for:

  • 50% of females in management roles and above
  • 14% of Ethnic minority colleagues

We’re supporting our colleague networks

We’ve launched colleague networks (Ethnicity, Women, LGBTQIA+, Parents & Carers and Disability). We believe our colleague networks are an important part of our Inclusion & Diversity journey. So, we’re committed to giving everyone the opportunity to talk about their experiences and to shape change here at YBS.

We’re making sure our digital transformation is for everyone

Our digital journey is only just beginning, and we want to make sure that everyone is able to play a part in our transformation. One of our priorities right now is finding more female engineers to join us, and we’re committed to helping women and girls build rewarding futures in a range of STEM subjects.
