We're Consumers Credit Union and our mission is to empower our
members to live better lives.
We're a financial institution just like a bank, except not
exactly. Banks have customers, but because we're a not-for-profit,
member-owned credit union, we have members. And because we're not a
bank, we don't drive up profits just because shareholders demand
it. Instead, we focus on driving up member happiness through low
loan rates, high deposit rates and low- or no-fee products and
services. We focus on things like transparency, simplicity,
helpfulness, integrity, positivity and inclusion - and we always
put our members first.
In fact, we serve nearly 178,000 members and have over $2.6
billion in assets. We employ nearly 500 people in the Chicago area
and have 18 branch locations in Illinois. We offer access to a
national shared branching network, and more than 80,000
surcharge-free ATMs worldwide. And although we've been around for
over 80 years, we're just getting started!
So what about you? Are you looking for a new opportunity where
you can use your talents to make a positive difference in peoples'
lives? A friendly place that values what you bring to the table?
And you love a challenge as much as you love market competitive
compensation and benefits for your hard work and dedication? If
this sounds about right then check out the job details below!
Work remotely until our office reopens in Fall 2021.
