Yorkshire Building Society to create 100 more jobs

One hundred jobs are to be created at Yorkshire Building Society.

The extra staff, who will be recruited by December, are in addition to another 100 jobs which have been created so far this year.

The society, which has its headquarters in Bradford, has released its interim results showing a pre-tax profit of £82.1m for the past six months.

Chief executive Chris Pilling said the jobs would be split between Bradford and a new centre in Leeds.

Mr Pilling said up to 1,000 staff would be based at the new site in Leeds city centre.

He said £11m would be invested in the main Bradford site and £5m in offices in Cheltenham and Peterborough.

He added: "Our continued financial strength has allowed us to begin the significant investment programme which we announced earlier this year to further improve the quality of service we deliver to our members."
