Volunteer with us

We’re looking for volunteers to join our our team at CroydonPlus. We’re changing fast and volunteering can be a great way to get opportunity to get experience of working in a busy office, developing career opportunities and new skills as you work with an enthusiastic team.

We’re looking for bright, enthusiastic, customer and service focused individuals who can share our belief in the Credit Union and provide our members with a quality service.

We have a range of opportunities from customers services, through to finance and IT. As an ethical and community-focused organisation, volunteering is a great way of contributing to your community and very rewarding.

Volunteering can provide opportunities to develop your skills across a wide range of areas from customer services, finance, marketing, website content and process management.

Ideally we’d like volunteers to be able to commit for a few months with a minimum of four hours a day on at least two days a week. But we can be flexible on this.

Interested? Send an email with your CV, a completed Volunteer Application Form and some information about the sort of role you are interested in to cu-manager@cmscu.co.uk.
