The Nationwide difference

We’re the world’s largest building society

Over 160 years ago we opened our doors as a building society. Run for the benefit of our members, being a building society means that we're free to reinvest more of our profits to improve the products and services we offer.

We provide great service for our members

We’re proud to say we have the best customer satisfaction amongst our major high street competitors*, but if something does go wrong we aim to resolve it quickly - to our members’ and customers’ satisfaction.

We listen to what our members have to say

Our members told us that they preferred our UK only call centres for their higher levels of service. So that's what we offer - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

We support your local communities

Last year alone our employees spent over 19,000 hours volunteering on community projects. By 2017, our members and employees will have helped decide how we invest £15 million to support local communities.

We’re committed to being an ethical business

Every decision we make as a business is underpinned by our core values of decency, fairness and dependability. Doing the right thing for our members is at the heart of what we do.

Our members decide how we’re run

Each year we ask our members to take part in our AGM and vote on key decisions about how we operate as a business. It’s your Society, so it’s only right that you help set the direction we take.
