Darlington Building Society

Darlington Building Society is an independent building society that strives to create a feeling of pride amongst its staff, members and local communities.

Our focus is to remain a regional building society dedicated to making a genuine difference to the communities we serve. We are passionate about sharing our knowledge, expertise, physical and online resources for mutual benefit.

As a member-driven building society with no shareholders we aim to build on our reputation as the approachable expert by providing a range of mortgage, savings, investment and insurance products delivered with a quality of service we can all be proud of.

What does mutuality mean?

Mutuality means we are run for our members.  As with all building societies, we have no outside shareholders to pay dividends to.  This means all of our profits are used to benefit our members through attractive interest rates and efficient and friendly service.  We offer a straight-forward and attractive range of mortgage and investment products, especially designed to meet the current and future financial needs of our members and customers.

We have almost 160 years experience in looking after local interests and we are committed to remaining a strong independent mutual for the long term.

Diversity and equality

We aim to be an inclusive organisation, where diversity is valued, respected and built upon, with ability to recruit and retain a diverse workforce.
We are committed to ensuring that existing members of staff and job applicants are treated fairly in an environment which is free from any form of discrimination. Click here to see our Diversity and Equality Policy which applies to all members of staff, Executive and all directors.
