Volunteering is a noble profession, let’s take a look at how you can help us meet the needs of our community.
Have you ever considered volunteering in your local community based credit union?
All Irish credit unions are built upon the efforts of volunteers, who provide their time and skills freely to their credit unions and its members in the spirit of cooperation. Like many credit unions, Ballinasloe Credit Union relies on the enthusiasm and commitment of volunteers, without whom we wouldn’t be able to achieve our goals. We have a team of volunteers in Ballinasloe Credit Union which enables us to function proactively and positively for the communities around our Common Bond. Having the people of the community involved at every level helps credit unions to be the most trusted organisations in Ireland year on year!
Don’t worry you will be given plenty of support and training and you will very quickly pick things up – training is a very important part of being involved in the credit union. Our volunteers assist with the running of many committees, adding their skills, knowledge and experience, contributing to better governance and decision making. In return, the credit union provides training and support to introduce and guide them in their new role.
Which area of credit union work interests you the most? We have something suitable for people of all backgrounds and ages. Volunteering with a long established local organisation is mutually beneficial and very rewarding. When you volunteer, you can develop both personally and professionally:
You will gain many friends, develop additional skills which will serve you well in your career (no matter what that is) and you will be confident in the knowledge that you are enhancing the lives and financial wellbeing of our members and community
