Not just another building society. Not just another job.
We're the fourth biggest building society in the UK and what makes us a bit different is that we're a mutual organisation. We don't have shareholders, we're owned by our members.
Our colleagues say Skipton's a great place to work and you could be one of them, bringing with you new ideas on how we can keep customers at the heart of what we do.
Whatever your background, and whatever your goals, we'll help you take the next step towards a better future.
An opportunity to shape our future…and yours!
Skipton is a diverse and flexible employer, with an exciting future ahead. The Society has strong financial strength and boosts fantastic customer and colleague experience.
The Finance team are at the beginning of an exciting journey. We are currently re-shaping what our teamlooks like for the future, making sure we are adding the most value to the Society. As part of this, we have also started our Finance Transformation programme, which will bring new finance systems to benefit not only the function but the rest of the organisation, and we’ve re-designed ourselves to make the most of talent and skills in the team to add the most value to the Society.
We’re evolving what we do and how we do it and we’ve got an exciting new opportunity within the Financial Strategy and Business Partnering team. We’re looking for someone with passion, drive and a curiosity to challenge and ask questions that bring meaning to your outputs and analysis.
You will be working closely with your leader, peers across the team and key stakeholders throughout the organisation to help deliver long term value to the Society. Safeguarding the future sustainability of our business is a delicate balancing act, which you’ll actively support through detailed analysis and insight of the Society’s risk versus reward position. Through the provision of sound analysis, you will support your leader in articulating the strengths and challenges in our existing balance sheet structure, carrying out scenario modelling and sensitivity analysis to identify and propose tangible actions for future balance sheet and capital optimisation.
Career progression is available by those driven in seeking an empowered destiny for themselves.
What you will bring
You’ll need extensive financial knowledge and experience of working within financial services (ideally in the Banking/Building Society sector) and a good understanding of key balance sheet areas, specifically mortgages, retail savings, wholesale funding and liquidity.
Analytical and people skills are equally important in this role. You’ll have strong commercial acumen, be proficient in data manipulationand interrogation, have a strategic mindset and be comfortable taking individual initiative, working in an environment not driven by process.
You will have an ability to build strong and effective relationships and will demonstrate strong thought leadership, having the courage of your convictions and being confident to stand behind your views and recommending the best course of action.
If you are up for the challenge, and you want to have a real say in how things are being done at Skipton, we want to hear from you.
Diversity and inclusion are a priority for us as we continue to support our members and represent the communities we serve. We encourage applications from individuals of all backgrounds, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, neurodiversity, age, family or parental status, beliefs, nationalities and religions – supporting an inclusive environment for all our colleagues to bring their true selves to Skipton.
