Whether you’re a number cruncher, a big thinker or a people person, you’ll be able to find your team at Nationwide.

Opportunities at Nationwide are wide ranging – from kickstarting careers and training in IT for students, graduates and career changers, to re-thinking technology to build a better society with exciting openings for digital, data and analytics and IT engineering specialists.

Across the UK, colleagues with people skills are needed to provide the highest-quality customer support to Nationwide’s 15 million members in person, over the phone, via digital channels or using video technology.

There are also careers in legal, marketing, risk management, financial crime and product and proposition development, as well as executive jobs for leaders who inspire trust and engage and enable their people.

With Nationwide, you can be you

What’s more, because Nationwide’s members are made up of so many different kinds of people, the organisation wants its employees to be just as diverse. Founded with a strong social purpose with inclusion at its heart, whatever your background, ethnicity or gender, when you work for Nationwide you’re valued for who you are as well as what you can contribute, as some of the people who already work for the organisation can testify.

Working at Nationwide

“Fun, rewarding and valued,” is how Heather, who works within the Channel Support team, describes working at Nationwide. She adds: “Nationwide has always been loyal and supported me when I've needed them. I love how we reach out to the communities we live and work in, and positively look to make a difference to people's lives.”

Angel, Risk Manager Lead, who relocated from Bulgaria to Swindon, says: “The best thing about working at Nationwide and living in Swindon has been the people. My teammates and colleagues from the wider team have been very supportive and really friendly. It’s great to be able to learn, develop and work alongside positive and dedicated people. The friends I have made along the way have also helped to make life here really enjoyable. Striking a healthy work-life balance is easy here; I’m able to enjoy a flexible working pattern and the opportunity to work from home one day a week.”

Senior Change Manager, Aisha, who was awarded the prestigious ‘WeAreTheCity’ Rising Star 2020 Award (Banking and Capital Markets), classes herself as ‘homegrown’. She didn’t go to university but instead developed herself through her inquisitive nature and leadership intuition. Nationwide’s youngest senior manager, she’s an inclusion champion to the core and a keen promoter on the value of diversity, working with groups such as Women Ahead and the Black Young Professional network. On winning the award she said: “It’s so important women and women of colour continue to push the boundaries and showcase our value – I’m honoured to become a role model to all women, regardless of where they are in their journey to embrace who they are and be their best self.”

A range of benefits tailored to you

Nationwide also takes good care of its people. From flexible working opportunities and family-friendly policies to flexible benefits – including the option to buy private healthcare discounted for you and your family, reduced-price gym memberships, and dental plans – plus a generous holiday entitlement, benefits are designed with you in mind.
