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.
Below are just a few of the reasons over 15 million members choose to bank, save or have mortgages with us – that’s over a quarter of the UK’s population.
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.
Our members decide how we’re run
Each year we ask our members to take part in our AGM and vote on key decisions about how we operate as a business. It’s your Society, so it’s only right that you help set the direction we take.
We support 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.
We listen to what our members have to say
Our members told us that they wanted a greater choice of current accounts with a range of features, such as commission free cash withdrawals abroad and in-credit interest. So we launched FlexPlus and FlexDirect.
