What will I get out of it?
Although volunteering with us is unpaid, we’ll give you out-of-pocket expenses and you’ll gain a huge amount from your time with us. We’ll provide:
What will I be doing?
You’ll get involved in things like assisting member recruitment, helping with mailings and marketing, looking after the database and supporting financial literacy and education.
How much time do I need to commit?
At least 4 hours a week. The more time you can offer us, the more interesting tasks you’ll be able to get involved in.
What skills do I need?
It’s helpful if you’re a friendly and outgoing person with skills or experience in an office environment. But even if you lack these skills, as long as you have enthusiasm and an interest in helping out at a dynamic and rapidly growing financial co-operative business, we’re interested in hearing from you. Everyone has something to offer the credit union. You don't need to be a financial expert or a whizz on a computer. Get in touch and we’ll work out how you can help.
I don't know anything about credit unions
Don't worry, you can learn. We’ll take you through an induction process and you’ll quickly pick things up! You can find out more about us and what credit unions are all about on the About Us section of this website.
Where will I be based?
You’ll primarily work from our office on Brownhill Road in Catford
