Facilities Project Manager

About Us
We all know happiness comes from within. And it’s no different with Money Happiness. It starts right here! At Saffron BS we’re ready to build it, inspire it and celebrate it with our members, people and communities.

So whatever that ‘happy’ is – from picking up the keys, to saving for that big day – we’re here with open arms, curious minds and the kettle on. Ready to cheer our members on when they’re winning, or build them back up when things haven’t gone to plan. And why? Because that’s what families do. 

For us, this is much more than a job. We’re here to make things better, roll up our sleeves and think what’s next to rebuild. Our people are the beating heart of Saffron and it takes each and every one of us to provide the service we’re proud of. 

So bring you! Your energy, an abundance of team spirit and your hunger to help.

Together we’re building happy.
