Coventry Building Society has grown into the second largest building society in the UK. Despite being a national Society, it keeps its local values and loyalty, and its caring family ethos.

The best way to judge a company is based on what the people who work there say. Our recent employee survey rated us Number 8 in the Sunday Times 25 Best Big Companies to Work For list in 2021. We offer not only fulfilling jobs and exciting career opportunities but a place where everyone can be long and feel proud to work. What makes us such a rich and progressive place to work is the huge variety of people that make up our workforce.

And of course, we don’t pretend that what you do for us is all there is to you. We want you to bring your whole self to work – parent, carer, artist, triathlete, introvert… whatever it is that makes you YOU. We offer the balance to make sure you have plenty of time to do the things you need or want to do alongside work, because we know that’s how you are able to be your best.

We are currently recruiting a Senior Business Analyst with a proven delivery record, responsible for deciding the analysis approach and delivering to the business needs for a financial transformation programme.
