We employ over 100 people across our 8 branches and Principal Office who work hard to make things happen, trust in the Society’s purpose and the direction in which it is heading. In fact, our recent engagement survey showed that 97% of colleagues were proud to work for the Marsden.
Our people have made the Marsden who we are today. They make a big difference to the Society and how it operates, which is why we’d like to share with you what they think about working for us.
“We recognise that being a successful business relies on great people to deliver the Marsden service. Our members say that it’s our people that make the difference and we agree. We are looking for passionate people with a customer focus that can deliver the Marsden values.”
Rob Pheasey, Chief Executive
Here’s what our people have to say…
I started my career with the Marsden in 2019 when I joined as Marketing Apprentice. My role is to work within the Marketing team, to support the Marsden’s online and offline promotional plans. A typical day for me could involve writing blogs, creating social media content, planning events, designing graphics, and developing the website! I enjoy the working environment at the Marsden because it has given me lots of new experiences as well as boosting my confidence, communication, creativity, and time management skills. Every day I leave work with new knowledge which I can use in the future.
I joined the Marsden in 2018 as HR Assistant. My job varies from day to day because you never know what to expect (in a good way!). I support the employment lifecycle, which includes the colleague induction, training, and even retirement! We exemplify our company values in our people, which is why the Marsden is such a lovely place to work. People are happy, welcoming, and enjoy getting involved. The Marsden also invests in their people, and since starting I have been able to get my Diploma in HR Management with their support.
I joined the society as an apprentice in 2000 when I was 18 years old. My current role is Savings Manager, but I’ve had many different roles in the past including Investment Services, IT, a Mortgage Arranger, and a cashier in our branches. With overall responsibility for the day-to-day running of the Savings department, I find myself signing-off new products, overseeing quality control, compiling the Society’s regulatory reporting and strategising the launch of new savings initiatives. Here at the Marsden, we’re large enough to make a positive difference in society, but small enough that all staff can feel that their own individual input is an important part of our success.
