There’s never been a better time to join Nationwide Digital…

Last year more people opened an account with us than with any other brand! We have one of the highest customer satisfaction ratings in the industry and continue to be voted the UK’s most trusted financial services brand. As a Mutual Society, we’re owned by our members not shareholders, so their needs are at the heart of everything we do, which makes working here feel really different than ‘for-profit’ companies.

Building on that success, we’re now on a hugely exciting and ambitious transformation journey to evolve our multi-channel  service, delivering legendary service across Mobile and Internet Banking, creating new and exciting propositions to grow our member base, develop our Open Banking channel and revitalise our Branch network - all designed to give choice to our members and meet their needs today and tomorrow.

Using industry standard software, you’ll employ Design activities, techniques and practices on all projects. You will be expected to work in a variety of production methodologies from Agile to Lean to traditional waterfall depending on the demands of the project.
