Coventry Building Society is looking for members in the Coventry area to join its Members’ Council. The Council is a team of 12 volunteers who work with the Society over a two-year period, reviewing its progress and giving feedback on a wide range of issues, from customer service to savings and mortgage products.

Phil Sawyer, Corporate Communications Manager at the Society said: “This is a great opportunity for local Coventry members to get involved with the running of their building society. Banks and building societies are rarely out of the spotlight and everyone has an opinion on how they should be run. We’re very keen to listen to our members and act on what they tell us. The Members’ Council is another way for members to give their opinion and make a real difference”.

Diana Willcox from Bristol has been a member of the society for eight years and joined the Members’ Council earlier this year. She said: “There aren’t many businesses that let their customers have a say in how they’re run. And I’m pleased to see that they don’t shy away from the big issues. The Council is really important as it gives members a real say in the Coventry’s future”.

Phil Sawyer continues: “We are looking to fill three places on the Member’s Council and we would like volunteers from the Coventry area as we want to make sure the views of the local community are represented. We already have a number of saving members on the Council, so I’m particularly interested to see if any mortgage borrowers would like to become involved. You certainly don’t need to be a financial expert, but if you have a deeper interest in how things are done here, we’d like to hear from you”.
