About The Company
It’s an exciting time to join Coventry Building Society as a Graduate. We’re undertaking a number of large changes that will affect all areas of our business. From redesigning our Branches to implementing a new core banking system, being part of our Graduate Programme will enable you to be at the heart of the areas closely linked to these projects. The changes we’re making will only serve to enhance the experience we provide to our members and you’ll be at the forefront of ensuring we exceed their expectations and continue to deliver an award winning service.
Our Graduate Programme provides insight into the wider business through dedicated sessions that demonstrate how each function contributes to our success. You’ll also complete placements in areas that deal directly with our members to help you understand the importance we place on Members First. In addition to the business knowledge you gain, we’ll support you in developing other skills such as stakeholder engagement, communication and presentation delivery. You’ll attend development days and take on both individual and group projects that allow you to network and build strong relationships across the Society.
Built around a set of Graduate capabilities and combined with our values of Caring, Attentive, Reliable, Ethical and Straightforward, our Graduate Programme offers individuals the structure and support they need to develop a career, whether that’s in a member facing environment or in a Head Office function.
