Careers at The Co-operative Bank

​At The Co-operative Bank we put our people at the heart of every decision we make

We are pioneering the way as the original ethical Bank. We’re the only UK bank with a customer-led Ethical Policy that’s formed by our customers and their priorities. Which means, what matters most to our customers matters most to us.

We put ethics before profits and choose not to bank with businesses involved in fossil fuels, animal cruelty, oppressive regimes, or those who incite hatred. Instead, we choose to partner with organisations who stand up for what’s right. Those who make change happen on a range of issues, like the climate crisis and fairer renting. Unsurprisingly, our ethics run right to the core of our business every day, we provide our people with a place of work that champions wellbeing, diversity, and fair pay.

We’re proud of our ethical history, but issues facing our planet and community aren’t going away. This is no time to stop. In fact, it’s time to do more. And, with your help, we will.

​​Why join us

We’re not a bank that follows the crowd. Instead, we like to stand out for all the right reasons and continue to push boundaries where other banks won’t. Our commitment to our co-operative values sets us apart, and to maintain that distinction, we want individuals to join us who share our values and are willing to challenge the norm. We celebrate those who believe in our values and champion our colleagues who continue to be disruptive with our mission and bring ethical banking to the forefront.

We are proud of our diverse colleague community and encourage everyone to bring their whole selves to work. We recognise that reward is more than just a salary, which is why we also offer a range of attractive benefits to cater to the well-being of our employees. These include; flexible working options, enhanced maternity and paternity leave, paid volunteering days to support meaningful community initiatives, colleague development and many more.
