Newcastle Building Society To Create 100 New Jobs

Newcastle Building Society is spending £10 million investment in a move which will create 100 new jobs in 2016. The new jobs this year will surpass the 80 positions which the north east building society added in 2015.

The financial firm will close three branches Heaton, Gateshead and Wallsend, but will improve some other existing building societies and open several more over the coming months, including two advice centres in Newcastle city centre.

Other jobs will be created as Newcastle Building Society launches a new website in a few months’ time.

At the building society itself, and within the company’s separate financial services and strategic solutions subsidiaries, a whole range of roles will be created, including customer service roles, IT jobs, financial advice positions and vacancies within the firm’s mortgage business.

Andrew Haigh, chief executive of Newcastle Building Society, explained the logic behind the £10 million investment in improving their offering to the public:

“Our new Advice Centres will provide readily available face-to-face investment, mortgage and protection advice and will be based in Newcastle City Centre. We recognise that customers want face-to-face advice and these facilities will allow us to focus on doing just that and over extended opening hours.”

And, addressing the 100 future recruits that the investment will create, Mr Haigh added: “This is an exciting time for Newcastle Building Society as we build upon the tremendous progress we have made throughout 2015 and we look forward to welcoming new staff to the Society team as we deliver these plans through 2016.”
