Telephone banking

Your organisation can benefit from a personal service from our UK-based Customer Service centre. With telephone banking from Unity, you’ll always talk to a person, not an automated message. 90% of telephone queries are dealt with by the first person who answers your call, and we aim to answer all calls within 20 seconds.

With telephone banking, you do not need to be a signatory to gain general account information including:

  • Obtaining a balance
  • Checking a payment
  • Stopping cheques

Our telephone banking service is available Monday-Friday 8:30am-5pm (Thursday 9.30am-5pm), simply call 0345 140 1000.
