Building something special

Building something special

Our 18,000 employees are passionate about providing the very best for our 15 million members. To do that, there are times when we need to bring in extra people with the right skills and expertise to complete the team - a dynamic workforce of temps and contractors like you. 

Our culture

At Nationwide, our values are underpinned by the need to put our members first. It’s a driving force in every area of our business, and an essential requirement if you’d like to work with us.

Here are a few of the factors that make us a bit different, a bit special.

Bring your whole self to work

We want our colleagues to be as diverse as our membership because we know that makes us stronger and better able to meet their needs. We commit to being inclusive and flexible, so everyone can enjoy their work, feel valued and look after their wellbeing. 

We’re the world’s largest building society

Over 170 years ago, we opened our doors as a building society. Being a mutual and run for the benefit of our members, means that we’re free to reinvest more of our profits to improve the products and services we offer.

Supporting your local communities

Decent housing is a topic close to our heart. In fact, it was central to how and why we began. It’s also the reason why we launched our community grants programme – a chance for local organisations with great housing solutions to apply for grants of up to £50,000. Applications get shortlisted and our members vote to decide who receives funding.

Looking for a place to stay?

We actively recruit temporary workers into permanent roles so if you like it here, you could end up staying.

'Living wage' not minimum wage

We are proud to be signatories to the Living Wage Foundation, which covers our temporary and contract workers too.
