Description

If you want to give back to your community this is a great way to do it. The Moray Firth Credit Union is seeking people who are interested in the exciting opportunity to serve on their Board. Some longstanding Board members shielded and subsequently retired during ‘lockdown’ in March 2020.
The Credit Union has a long history of serving the local community. Formerly the Forres Area Credit Union until 2020) it was set up in 1995 as a response to high unemployment in the Forres area when a nearby Fabrication Yard closed. Today, the main office of the ‘Savings & Loans Co-operative’ is located at 53 High Street Forres, though plans are in the works to to expand and set up ‘satellite’ collection points in other places in Moray as this social enterprise develops.
During COVID, the Credit union has remained open for business to support those people who use the credit union as thier bank and have hosted 'zooms' every fortnight with current Board members to keep abreast of new developments.
If you have an interest in people, community or even if you want to learn more about the unique role a credit union plays in the lives of the people and communities they serve, (and have some spare time) the Moray Firth Credit Union would be delighted to hear from you. For a Board of Directors Pack please call 01309 676735 or email maggie@morayfirthcreditunion.co.uk for further information and an application. All volunteers are asked to join the Credit Union if they are not already a member.
