Learning and Development

Your development starts on day one and lasts your whole career, after all there is always something new to learn and skills you can develop and we are here every step of the way.


All of our colleagues attend our group induction session, Building People: Your Journey Begins at our Cobalt Office in North Tyneside.

You will join us alongside fellow new colleagues, where we welcome you to our Society and immerse you in our culture.

The workshop is hugely interactive and includes a mix of videos, guest speakers, trainer led facilitation and group activities, allowing you to build relationships with other new colleagues from across the Newcastle Building Society Group.

You will discover why our members are so important to us, how we continue to build upon our strong relationships with them, provide them with excellent customer service, and how we support our communities. 

 “I enjoyed the group element of the training; this made me feel that I would know some people once I started my role.  I was very impressed that the CEO visited, I felt this reflected the culture of the Society and made me feel valued” Beth - Joined 2019

Your personal and professional development is as important to us as it is to you. We promote a coaching culture across our society and our qualified coaches are on hand should you need them.
