Jubilee Tower Credit Union was formed by volunteers and is still very much volunteer-led.  We’re proud to be a big part of Blackburn with Darwen’s voluntary sector and fully recognise the major part our committed volunteers play in our day-to-day service.

Supported by a small team of equally-dedicated paid staff, our volunteer team have a huge role in what we do. Volunteers are at every level of our organisation; from all of our Board of Directors and Supervisory Committee right through to our Credit Committee, Administration, Customer Service and Cleaner. Our team of 20+ volunteers are the heartbeat of the Credit Union.

They volunteer for all kinds of reasons. Some want to give something back to the community, some are retired, some are long-term Members of the Credit Union who believe passionately in what we do, some are jobseekers looking for new skills, some are young people looking for experience.

We lose about five a year to paid employment and this is something we’re immensely proud of.  For a small organisation to have that record is impressive and shows how high a regard volunteering for the Credit Union is held in by prospective employers. We’re a multiple-times Investors in People-awarded organisation and this reflects our nurturing environment.

If you are interested in volunteering for the Credit Union then please feel free to get in touch. Or, as a Member, maybe you would like to be involved at a strategic level and shape our objectives as a member of the Board or Supervisory Committee – again, just contact us.
