Help us to develop our work in the community
Hoot welcomes volunteers as an integral part of promoting and developing its work
Volunteers support staff in a number of ways and bring a range of skills and experience to the organisation. There are many ways you can volunteer in Hoot Credit Union. Whether you can commit a few hours or a few days each month we have a role for you. So if you're looking to support a worthwhile cause, browse our available roles and don't hesitate to get in touch.
If you think the values of co-operation, fairness and equity are ones you would like to promote. If you believe that everyone should have access to fair, affordable finance. If you agree that a business that shares all of its profit with the people who use its services, the members; then you may be just the person we are looking for.
Our Community Champions will help us promote the benefits of credit union membership by talking to business and community groups in meetings, events and wherever the opportunity arises. You may also be asked to help with one-day 'pop up' credit union promotions.
All you need is the confidence to talk passionately about something you believe in and the commitment to help us in raising awareness of what we do.
