Established yet energetic, Paragon is a British banking group with an award-winning range of savings products and a focus on lending in specialist mortgage and business finance markets.
With a long and successful history in buy-to-let mortgage lending, we’ve grown rapidly in recent years to build a thriving commercial lending division that offers finance to small and medium-sized business customers operating across a wide range of different sectors – from aviation, agriculture and construction, through to property development, print and technology. We also service a range of consumer loan portfolios through our subsidiary, Idem.
Our vision is to become the UK’s most highly regarded specialist provider of finance for people and today we have over 430,000 customers, £12 billion of assets under management and annual operating profits of over £150 million.
Over 1,300 people work for Paragon across the UK and we put our customers at the heart of our business. Our culture is built on values of integrity, professionalism, humour, commitment, creativity, teamwork, fairness and respect and we work together to help our customers achieve their lifestyle ambitions, ensure fair outcomes and build an organisation of which we can all be proud.
A FTSE 250 company listed on the London Stock Exchange, Paragon offers a friendly and supportive environment for employees. Amongst an elite group of organisations with Investors in People Gold accreditation, we support our employees with a range of development opportunities to help them progress in their careers.
