Company Information

THE ROOTS OF this member-owned financial services provider go back to 1884, when the Coventry Permanent Economic Building Society was founded to serve the interests of its customers. That original ethos remains central to its endeavours, best summed up by its motto: TLC not PLC.

With headquarters in Coventry and 75 branches nationwide, it has grown to become the UK’s third largest building society, employing 2,276 staff. They believe that the business is run on strong principles, an 87% positive score, ranked ninth, and that budget concerns are not the only thing driving operations (76%, sixth).

Ranking in the top 20 for Giving Something Back, the firm allows people two days a year to participate in volunteering for good causes, including the Royal British Legion, and matches their fundraising efforts by up to £250 for individuals and £1,000 for teams.
