We know you can’t put a price on your health, but it helps, particularly when it comes to optical care, dental and chiropody. That’s why from day one, you will have access to a health Cash Plan to claim back your day-to-day healthcare needs.
If that’s not enough, all employees will also receive full private medical insurance through Bupa, as well as a GP service when you can’t get to see your own.
We take your wellbeing very seriously. Over the last 12 months in particular we have invested considerably in supporting our people in all areas of their life. We have 14 qualified Mental Health First Aiders across the Society who are always on hand to listen and support.
Whether it's providing mindfulness classes, tea and talk sessions with a counsellor or offering visits to our onsite Physiotherapist, Matt (when allowed) we tend to go the extra mile. We have offered everyone the chance to learn a new skill and this has gone down very well; with Crystal Healing Diplomas and cross stitch accreditations, to learning a new language, the list goes on and on.
From time to time we all have events in our life which will require time away from work. In addition to your 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays), we offer additional days if you move house, get married or welcome a new grandchild to your family.
We know everyone is different though, which means we operate a flexible holiday scheme, so you can buy and sell your holiday to suit your needs.
As a financial service institution, we always think now is a good time to plan ahead. Alongside our generous, flexible pension plan, we give all employees time with an Independent Financial Adviser to review your pension arrangements, to make sure you’re planning for your future. You can also add a little to your savings account every month straight from your salary, to stop temptation getting in your way!
In the event something happens to you, we want to make sure your family are covered. That’s why, should the worst happen, we provide life assurance for four times your annual salary, to leave to your loved ones.
If you ask our employees what word they would use to describe Dudley Building Society, they say "family" (we know, we asked them!). This means we know how important yours is. Our Flex Appeal policy across the business lets you have the opportunity to balance the needs of your family with those of the Society.
We appreciate you may spend more time with us rather than with your family, so to say thank you we’ll take your family out for the day once a year, as well as run regular colouring and writing competitions and even get the kids involved in our Dudley Dragon Book Club. We understand that they support you, for you to support us.
We are passionate about our people and investing in their future is something we think is really important. That's why over half of our workforce is working towards a recognised qualification or learning a new skill.
Over the last few years, our internal talent programmes have enabled our people to be promoted into both Managerial and Executive level roles, equipping them with skills they need now and in the future.
As a small Society, you can expect to find unique opportunities in learning new skills and gaining valuable knowledge, should you want exposure to a broad range of activities. Whether that’s being part of a project team, being mentored by one of our senior leaders or attending various committees to build your knowledge, the opportunities are there for the taking. Strong performance is recognised through our GEM (going the extra mile) scheme and rewarded.
