Help us to bring our brand and membership to life through our service communications

We’re a building society founded by ordinary people, our members, who came together to help each other get the most from their money, buy homes and save for their futures. For over 130 years, we’ve supported each other and our communities, and we’ve done the right thing for wider society too.

If you come to work here at Nationwide, you’ll be part of something a bit different. And part of something really quite special.
Our award-winning Marketing & Engagement community covers all sorts of things, from brand and advertising to digital communications, events to social investment, analytics to delivery - and everything in between.

A considerable part of this role will be focused on mapping our service communication journeys, gathering insight on these journeys then creating a strategy to transform these communications for our members.

In basic terms, these communications can be described as every letter and digital communication we send to meet our regulatory commitments and to fulfil the servicing and operation of member account(s). However, they are much more than this. They carry important and often complex messages and instructions that mark key moments or decision points in a members’ relationship with us and with our brand.

We have a duty of care to our members to make sure they’re clear, fair, not misleading and bring membership to life in a way that truly demonstrates our Building Society, Nationwide difference.

·         Experience of working with senior product and technical stakeholders to deliver challenging operational plans to achieve strategic aims
·         A passion for championing member-experience and optimal member journeys
·         Assertiveness and strong stakeholder management skills, to build credibility and gain the support of colleagues and 3rd parties, using negotiation and influencing skills, to drive positive member outcomes
·         Strong budget management skills and a clear focus on efficiency
·         Proven ability to manage multiple projects within a busy environment
