For the second year in a row we’ve been named as one of the UK’s Best 100 Companies to Work For in the prestigious Sunday Times list.

Having entered for the first time in 2018, we ranked 52nd this year - and are one of the few financial services businesses based in the North West to make it onto the list.

The Sunday Times Best Companies to Work for survey, now in its 19th year, gathers data from UK companies with more than 250 employees across all sectors. Analysts take into account the views of employees and look at categories including leadership, wellbeing, giving something back, personal growth and getting a fair deal.

Our chairman, Mike McTighe, said: “I’m very pleased to announce that for the second year running we have been recognised as one of the UK’s best companies to work for. Since Together was founded in 1974, our unique and family-like culture has been at the very core of our business. This culture is embodied in everything we do at Together, and in every single one of our colleagues starting from our chief executive, so it’s thanks to all of them that we are where we are today.”

HR director, Kevin Fisher, said: “This is a great achievement and one we are all extremely proud of. Taking part in the Best Companies survey is just one part of our commitment to giving colleagues a voice – through our listening strategy we strive to make sure every colleague feels part of Together.

“We’re a fast-paced and rapidly growing business and are keen to encourage our colleagues to play their part in the bigger picture, whether that’s taking part in our inclusivity initiative or giving something back with our strong CSR programme. Each and every Together colleague should be as proud of this award as I am of their commitment to our business – after all, they made this achievement possible.”

Our business has gone through significant growth in the last few years driven by increasing demand for our services, and now totals over 750 amazing colleagues. We announced record lending last month , with the news our current loan book stands at more than £3.25bn.
