Job Introduction

We are recruiting for a Customer Relationship Consultant within Burnley and Colne branches.

You have the opportunity to join our team and become one of the faces of Skipton Building Society. We are also interested in who you are as a person. Why? Because our membership is made up of many different kinds of people and we want our employees to be just as diverse.

Our purpose is to help more people have a home, help people save for life ahead and support long term financial wellbeing.

You will be engaging in conversations to find out our customers’ needs, providing information to customers about our full savings range, products, and services that we offer. You will also engage with our customers through our ‘My Review’ appointments which is a great opportunity to understand and discuss our customers financial goals in a friendly conversation. By really listening to and getting to know our customers you will help them to review their circumstances and what their goals are, whether that be financial, family, retirement, peace of mind or even a new home and through this proactively identify the most appropriate products to suit their needs, all the while providing a straightforward, helpful service that lets your enthusiasm shine through.

Together, you can help us build a better Society.

This is a multi-site role within Burnley and Colne Branches. However, this role is mainly based within Burnley Branch.

Who Are We?

Not just another building society. Not just another job.

We're the fourth biggest building society in the UK and what makes us a bit different is that we're a mutual organisation. We don't have shareholders; we're owned by our members.

Our colleagues say Skipton's a great place to work, and you could be one of them, bringing with you new ideas on how we can keep customers at the heart of what we do.

Whatever your background, and whatever your goals, we'll help you take the next step towards a better future.

Branch Life

Our branches are the heart of our local communities, however increasingly our customers want the flexibility of doing transactions online and engaging with us via the telephone and our contact centre. We can support all our customers calls from our branches via our telephony system. So, whether you are promoting a new product or resolving a problem, you will always place our customers’ needs at the heart of everything you do and provide a first-class service every time.

For our customers, you will be more than just the friendly face and voice of Skipton Building Society. You will be a listener, a problem solver and in time a fountain of knowledge to help them achieve their financial goals.
