What employees say

"My experience working for Serve and Protect Credit Union has been a great, successful adventure so far and I really didn’t expect to be given the amazing opportunities that I have received, within the last 5 years.

I have received the most amazing support and guidance from my current manager and still receive support every step of the way. I can certainly say Serve and Protect CU is definitely a company that I wish to remain working for a very long time. To have a job where you feel your opinion matters and what you do on a daily basis has a positive impact on the company, I feel is very hard to find these days.

Working for Serve and Protect CU gives me job satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment every single day. I feel my career within this company has only just started and I will continue to strive and push myself further and I can honestly say that I know Serve and Protect will support me along the way."

Natalie Gunn - Member Services Supervisor

What defines us

Here at Serve and Protect Credit Union, we strive to develop a ‘one-team’ organisational ethos based around a set of core values:  

  • Service Excellence 
  • Integrity
  • Ownership
  • Working Together. 

Our team has a passion for helping the people we serve. Nothing makes our Lending and Member Services Teams feel better than knowing they have met the financial need of a member and provided that person with an excellent service or when our people Managers encourage their team to collaborate and work together to achieve an end goal or target.  

When recruiting it is important that we find someone that has the right skills, experience, and qualifications but it is equally as important to recruit someone that will fit in well with our team. 

 So, if you are a great communicator, team player, multi-tasker, leader, innovator, have a strong work ethic, adaptable and confident, then Serve and Protect might be the place for you!

Word from the top

We truly have a fantastic team at Serve and Protect which has been no more apparent than over the last year. I have enormous pride for how our team adapted to the monumental changes faced by us all and the dedication to supporting those who serve and protect the nation alongside the ongoing challenges in our own lives was humbling.

We continue to grow together as an organisation and as people, with the credit union ethos of people helping people. Not everyone has that kind of meaning behind their work, but we do! We are now better, stronger, more sensitive, and appreciative of who we are, what we have and what we stand for.

We are all committed to the ‘one team’ approach by investing in ourselves and each other which is why I believe we are a such a great place to work.
