If you’re great with people, a Customer Service career in our Branch Network could be a great choice for you. As one of the biggest and most important teams at YBS, our Branch Network makes a huge impact on the success of our business. We always look for ways to give the best customer experience, make things more efficient and try new things. And because we’re right at the beginning of an exciting digital journey, our future has never looked more exciting - and neither has yours.


About the Role

As a Customer Service Advisor you’ll:

  • Get to know our members and support them in finding the right products and services that can provide Real Help With Real Life - whether that’s saving for a gap year trip, buying a first home, or anything in between.
  • Facilitate great conversations confidently through channel of choice, as you support our members in branch, over the phone and with the operation of their accounts online.
  • Forget sales targets, and enjoy the freedom to do what’s right.


Here at YBS no two branches are the same, they each have their own characteristics and qualities that makes working there so special. Here is what the hiring manager had to say about Ossett branch.

You will be joining a small friendly team who are engaged and passionate about the society's aspirations, and will support your onboarding journey with YBS helping you to settle into your new role and make the most of the opportunities to provide exceptional customer service to our mortgage and savings customers on a daily basis.

Each working day is varied and goes from providing an excellent counter service in our day to day interactions with customers, supporting their savings and mortgage needs as well as giving a fantastic experience to both customers and colleagues alike. I am passionate about developing your potential, so if you have career development aspirations, or simply want to be the best at your role, myself and the team at Ossett are there to support you every step of the way.

There are also opportunities to network with others in the wider area, region, network, and Head Office so you will be able to engage with others outside of your branch team, including those who are also onboarding at the same time.

The branch can be found on the pedestrian precinct at the opposite end to the town hall. There are lots of nearby pay & display car parks and has good bus links from Dewsbury & Wakefield.
