Video: Helping customers and supporting our community

We have an outstanding team at Paragon. Take a look at how they’re working together to help our customers, support our communities and keep each other safe during these unprecedented times.

We understand how important our employees are to the business and, in recognition of this, we provide a variety of excellent reasons to work for us.

  • Length of service awards for 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 and 30 years’ service
