We’re here to help them make the most of their money so they can achieve what they want in life. And we do that by bringing them together, because together we can achieve things we –

You can bank on the fact we don't act like one

We make history, but the future is our focus: We’ve been pioneers since 1846 and we’re proud of our achievements, but take a look and discover what our Society is like today. We’re evolving, growing and offering a huge range of career opportunities for people who share our values and ambition. Nationwide might look like a bank. We certainly offer products and services that look the same, but are quite different in practice. We start from a very different place, one that has profound implications. What truly defines us is that, as a mutual, we are owned by our members. Our culture is built upon providing legendary service for our thriving membership of over 15 million members. From the way we communicate to how we innovate our products, we put people first and keep their best interests at heart. These values aren’t new, they are what the Society was founded on and they underpin how we do things today. Whether you’re a number cruncher, a big thinker or a people person, there’s a place for you at Nationwide.

We'll also be moving into our new location at the iconic Post Building in Holborn, London in 2020.

Our new base will house around 1000 colleagues and a new digital and data innovation centre for those working in Digital, Data, Engineering, Architecture, Development Ops and Design specialisms.

Nationwide PRIDE Poem

We annually participate in many Pride Parades, in recent years we've supported parades in London, Manchester, Edinburgh, Belfast and Swindon. The Society’s LGBTQ+ Network actively supports employees across its branch network and admin sites, delivering activities and events that inform, educate and inspire all employees at Nationwide.
