Make a change for good

As a mutual building society, we like to do things a little differently here at Newcastle Permanent. Our organisation was built by people looking for an alternative to the major banks. Today, we’re still working to do better and become Australia’s favourite banking experience.

Everything we do is driven by our purpose to deliver trusted banking to our customers, and to make a real difference to the communities we serve by living our values:

  • Share the success
  • Do the right thing
  • Embrace the opportunity
  • Give a damn, every day

Working at Newcastle Permanent means you’ll be part of an organisation that delivers outstanding service to our customers, proudly sponsors local partners and contributes to the health and wellbeing of our communities. That’s not bad.
