The credit union movement is built upon the efforts of thousands of volunteers who give freely of their time and skills to their credit unions in the spirit of cooperation. Enniscorthy Credit Union has a team of volunteers with the skills and knowledge to lead and manage that credit union. Enniscorthy Credit Union’s Board of Directors and Committees are made up of volunteers, that are members of our credit union and our community. This is what makes Enniscorthy Credit Union so special, it is people helping people, member helping member.
Enniscorthy Credit Union has been in existence now for over 50 years and has become one of the largest Community Based Credit Unions in the country with assets in excess of €180 million and employing over 50 members of staff. Enniscorthy Credit Union is a very busy credit union with over 31,000 members throughout our common Bond which stretches across County Wexford, with our sub-offices in Ballymurn, Murrintown and Taghmon as well as our main Office at Abbey Square, Enniscorthy. An individual can develop both personally and professionally by volunteering.

The benefits of credit union volunteering include:
Gain skills and experience in a senior role of a professional financial service provider
Education and training
Meet new people from the community
Work on developmental and business projects
Give something back to the community
The credit union committees offer an excellent starting point for new volunteers. These committees provide experience, learning and an active role within the credit union. Once a volunteer has served the credit union at committee level for a period of time, and training needs have been identified and addressed, you can move into a director or supervisor position.
