We call it work, but it’s so much more...
A career with Ipswich Building Society is much more than a job. But then, we are much more than a mortgage and savings company.
Unlike other financial institutions you might be considering, we have no shareholders. Instead we have many thousands of members, all equally important. It makes us a very democratic organisation, and one for whom values are more influential than rules.
Our culture and outlook are distinctive too. We care about our people and their careers, making it a priority to nurture professional development as well as personal growth.
There are also many more career opportunities than purely financial roles. As a growing organisation we need the whole range of operational and administrative support, in addition to technical and customer service roles.
The pages in this section, and the video stories, explain what a career with Ipswich Building Society might be like, and should help you see if this is the organisation for you.
