Wiktoria Setera
Work experience and apprenticeship

“During my placement I was lucky to have worked with different departments and really enjoyed my time in both the mortgage department and working in the Branches. I was given a project to complete during my placement which I presented to the Branch Manager at the end of the week. After my placement, I kept in contact with the Society and when an apprenticeship opportunity became available, I had no hesitation in applying. I was successful in my application to become an apprentice customer service officer. Within three months a full-time position became available and I was made a permanent member of staff.”

Ben King
Work experience and apprenticeship with mortgage team.


“Following a couple of weeks of work experience with the Bath Building Society mortgage and savings teams I was lucky enough to secure a junior admin role with the mortgage admin team, working on a part-time basis while completing my studies. During that time an opportunity came up in the mortgage sales team and I applied and got the job. I now work closely with the Business Development Managers in the intermediary team and recently passed my CeMAP 2 & 3 qualifications.”
