We're a Living Wage employer
A Living Wage is defined as the hourly wage a worker needs to earn to cover their basic expenses within their community. It's a wage that lifts working families out of poverty and allows employees not just to subsist, but to have access to the types of things that make for a decent quality of life: the ability to contribute to communities, and be healthy and active social citizens. Our competitive salaries go well beyond the Living Wage, which aligns with our vision of building financially healthy communities. It means strong local economies, sustainability, and fostering a dedicated, skilled, and healthy workforce. We believe our members would expect nothing less of us in caring for our staff.
Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
To support employment equity and diversity in the workplace, we welcome applications from all groups, including visible minorities, Indigenous Peoples, persons with disabilities, persons of diverse sexual orientation, gender identity or expression (LGBTQ2S+), and others who may contribute to diversity at First Credit Union. We also recognize unique styles, perspectives, and beliefs that support a diverse, respectful, and inclusive work environment.
