Meet our Member Services Officer Maria
For our Member Services Officer Maria, taking a job at London Capital Credit Union was just ‘too good to refuse’!

Maria originally joined the credit union as a saver but, one day, while looking at our website, she came across an advert for volunteers.

Maria says: “At the time I was off work due to a back injury, but I felt I was ready to go back to work. I saw this as a great opportunity to brush up my interpersonal skills, broaden my experience and get references from a reputable business.”

“I was overjoyed when they accepted me as a volunteer in a business with whom I share so much in terms of democratic principles and ethical values. I loved the work as a volunteer. All the staff team were very supportive and made us volunteers feel very comfortable.”

After a few months, a vacancy for a paid job arose at the credit union, which Maria decided to apply for.

Maria explains: “I was also applying for other jobs, and on the day of my interview with the credit union I got a job offer from Stansted Airport, but when the credit union offered me the paid role of Member Services Officer I thought it was ‘an offer too good to refuse’. I feel so lucky.”

Maria says she enjoys the job, especially working with people from so many backgrounds and nations, together with the rewarding feeling of being part of a co-operative that is helping the community.

She adds: “I’d recommend volunteering with us to all those that have some spare time or wish to get in track to get back to work to join us for an experience of a life time.”
