Why This Job Is Right for You
UW Credit Union is hiring for a group of Financial Specialists to provide remarkable service and support our members! You will find that onboarding and training is a top priority for UW Credit Union. The first 12-weeks of employment for our Financial Specialists are devoted to you and your learning/training.
Financial Specialists play an instrumental role in the retention and satisfaction of UWCU members. Using the UW Credit Union 'Members for Life philosophy', the Financial Specialist's purpose is to establish and maintain relationships with members, uncover their true needs, provide education on financial options, and make recommendations to help members achieve their financial dreams.
In creating those meaningful connections, Financial Specialists see every 'you' - from opening a member's first checking account, to applying for an auto loan or first mortgage, to discussing retirement savings, and beyond.
UW Credit Union Financial Specialists are not solely driven by sales results. True to our reputation, Financial Specialists at UW Credit Union take time to provide quality solutions unique to each member. Humanity counts most to us, and we would rather miss a sales goal, than make a recommendation that is not in the member's best interest.
If you naturally cultivate and build relationships, are intrinsically inquisitive, empathetic, and solutions-oriented, then this is the job for you!
