An employee benefit making it easy for colleagues to build savings as they earn, at zero cost to you.

Low financial literacy and high living costs mean that increasing numbers of colleagues are financially stressed—regardless of how much they earn.

As a not-for-profit credit union, we already work with over 25 major local employers to improve the financial well-being of their staff.

Our salary deduction scheme is an employee benefit which enables staff to build their savings and to borrow at low rates which reflect the reduced risk of repayment directly from salary.

The scheme is easy to set up and cost-free to run. If you’d like to know more, we’d love to hear from you.
