As Benedict Gautrey, Managing Director of Great Place to Work® UK, explains:

We’re delighted to recognise so many great organisations in this fourth year of the UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Women list. The issues affecting women in the workplace, particularly what we’ve witnessed in the face of the pandemic including parity of pay and advancement opportunities, continue to be important topics. We are proud that, thanks to this ranking and the insights afforded by our successful organisations, we can help raise awareness of the importance of fairness around pay, recognition, training and development opportunities, and work-life balance. What our 2021 UK’s Best Workplaces™ for Women clearly show is the positive impact their practices have on business. As a result, they are better able to attract and retain women of talent, encouraging them to develop professionally and personally, and in turn, contribute exponentially to the success of the organisations they work for.

Here’s what Member Services Supervisor, Natalie Gunn, had to say about working for Serve and Protect CU:

My experience working for Serve and Protect Credit Union has been a great, successful adventure so far and I really didn’t expect to be given the amazing opportunities that I have received, within the last 5 years. I have received the most amazing support and guidance from my current manager and still receive support every step of the way. I can certainly say Serve and Protect CU is definitely a company that I wish to remain working for a very long time. To have a job where you feel your opinion matters and what you do on a daily basis has a positive impact on the company, I feel is very hard to find these days. Working for Serve and Protect CU gives me job satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment every single day. I feel my career within this company has only just started and I will continue to strive and push myself further and I can honestly say that I know Serve and Protect will support me along the way.
