Who we are
The Co-operative Bank has been doing things differently for over 150 years. Not because we’ve been told to, but because it’s the right thing to do. Since we were formed in 1872 we have worked hard to provide an ethical alternative to our larger competitors. Our unique customer led ethical policy has been held for over 30 years and is one of the main reasons our customers choose to bank with us. Although the ownership of the bank changed in 2017, we have an unwavering commitment to the co-operative values and principles on which we were built and are determined that The Co-operative Bank retains its position as the UK’s leading ethical bank.
Where you fit in
We have a wide range of departments from IT, Finance, Digital, Risk and People, to our brilliant customer facing teams within our Customer Services contact centre and in your local Branches. We have multiple career paths with a range of flexible working options to explore, and a place for all at the Co-operative Bank who want to use their talent and behaviour to inspire our teams and be stronger together.
We're market leaders in ESG
The Co-operative Bank has once again been rated as the UK’s best Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) high street bank*. We’re incredibly proud of our score, maintaining our place as the UK’s best rated high street bank* for ESG for another consecutive year. We're making good progress against our commitments to reach net zero on our direct emissions by 2030, amongst other ambitious ESG targets and we look forward to being able to share an update on our progress in our annual Sustainability Report, published in February 2024.
*Rated by Morningstar Sustainalytics in the Regional Banks sub-industry with a score of 8.5 as of 9 October 2023.
