“I’ve always enjoyed being part of a team, and have settled in very quickly to leading what is an excellent group of staff that I hope to be able to help develop their own careers over time.”
Heather Perry, Branch Divisional Manager at Newcastle Building Society, adds: “Our branch network is at the core of what we are as a mutual organisation – while we’ve broadened our services through telephone and internet-based operations, it is at the heart of our custom-facing operations.
