Inside your society
The principles and personalities behind the name you can trust
Discover what lies at the heart of one of the UK's largest and most successful building societies.
To our members, we're more than just a name. We're one of the UK's largest and most successful building societies with over 250 branches and local agencies across the whole country. So wherever you live, we're always there for you.
Inside our Head Office
Where else would you expect to find our Head Office other than right in the heart of Yorkshire. Situated on the outskirts of Bradford, Yorkshire House is part of an impressive £32 million development. More than that, it's home to over 1,300 Yorkshire Building Society colleagues, and it looks after nearly 4,000 colleagues in the wider Group. In May 2013 we announced plans for further investment in our Yorkshire House office plus the addition of a new office site at Broad Gate, Leeds.
Inside our Group
Following a series of successful building society mergers, The Yorkshire now includes the businesses of former building societies, Chelsea Building Society and Norwich & Peterborough Building Society. If you are a customer of either of these other brands, you are also a member of the Yorkshire Building Society - with all the rights and benefits that brings. Although we each have a unique and individual personality, we work closely together.
