Career development at Furness
To ensure a bright future for our Society, it’s essential we invest in what makes Furness unique - our people.
Investing in our people
Every single one of our colleagues has played a major role in our success and stability over the years, which is why it’s so important to invest in their continuous growth. From refresher training to funded degrees, our enhanced training initiative is vital for building a better Society for future generations.
Andrew Turner: Funded masters
Our Mortgage Ops Lead, Andrew, went from branch to HQ with qualifications and a Master’s Degree funded by Furness Building Society.
Pam Mawson: Life-long Training
How our Director of Operational Resilience & Strategic Change, Pam, climbed the ladder with training, qualifications and a degree, all fully funded by Furness Building Society.
Supporting strategic leadership
As part of our commitment to employee growth, we’re encouraging team members to complete the award-winning Strategic Leadership master's degree.
The three-year course was developed by the Building Societies Association, in partnership with Loughborough University, and there’s no obligation for building societies to participate. It’s a substantial commitment on the part of both students and business, however, we recognise the value in driving employee progress to continuously raise our standards for Society customers.
This year, we’re proud to have two colleagues completing the degree course, fully funded by Furness Building Society.
