“This is a time of great opportunity for the society as we look ahead to a post-pandemic way of working.

“Caroline’s skills and experience will be invaluable as we build a diverse workforce for the future and continue to settle into our new modern head office in the centre of Leeds.”

Hill added: “I’m delighted to be joining Leeds Building Society, where our skilled and talented colleagues are our biggest asset.

“We want to continue to attract, develop and retain this core talent by ensuring we have a supportive culture in place that creates an environment where people can thrive, whether that’s offering learning and development opportunities or developing hybrid working.”
