About Dudley Building Society

Dudley Building Society is a modern, progressive and regional building society that provides a range of financial services through a passionate commitment to providing an outstanding service from a dedicated team of valued employees.

They have been providing mortgages and savings accounts to the people of the Black Country for over 150 years, and their products are updated regularly to reflect the needs of members and to remain competitive in the changing economic backdrop.

With six locations across the Black Country and West Midlands area, the Society’s core values are: empowered, respect, responsive, innovate, commitment, and communities.

The company is led by Chief Executive Jeremy Wood, who is described as being passionate about staff and constantly interacting with the wider team. His desk is the first that employees see as they walk into the head office, and he’ll be the first person to say good morning to those who walk through the door.
