What kind of people does Numerica look for to fill positions?
First and foremost, Numerica looks for someone who is passionate about our core purpose of enhancing lives, fulfilling dreams, and building communities. If you’re fun, open to change, transparent, and work well on a team, then you should fit in nicely. Someone who wants to learn, grow, and has a passion for giving back to the community would feel right at home at Numerica.
Sometimes, seeing is believing, so we put together a video, The Numerica Experience, to give you a glimpse of what Numerica employees say about our special culture.
Should I work for a credit union?
Absolutely! Credit unions are member-owned and not-for-profit. At Numerica, for example, our entire vibe is member-centric. We’re always working to give members lower fees, lower rates on loans, and higher interest on deposit accounts. (Maybe it’s just us, but that’s more fun than trying to rake in extra bucks for shareholders.)
When you work for Numerica, you are both an employee and a member. This means we care about your well-being in the same way we do our membership. We like to be consistent that way.
Numerica employees are empowered to make decisions, and there are opportunities for advancement and development. Numerica supports employees’ individual career paths to help them advance within the organization.
“The fact that my voice is actually being heard and things are happening because of it really does set this company apart from all other companies I’ve worked for,” said Sidney Lorentz, network and systems administrator.
How are Numerica and other Spokane credit unions active in the community?
Credit unions give back to the communities they are in by supporting local charities, nonprofits, and community events. You’ll even see us team up together for causes like the Children’s Miracle Network.
This is in our DNA. Numerica is committed to giving back at least 5 percent of its earnings each year. We do this through community giving, scholarships, and innovative programs like the Numerica Charitable Fund, which is funded through the credit union’s Skip a Pay program.
But credit unions are about more than check writing. At Numerica, we believe in getting out and lending a hand. To show support for employees who want to do more to help their community, Numerica offers eight hours of paid volunteer time annually. We even have a donation matching program.
There is never a lack of volunteer opportunities through sponsorships and nonprofit partners.
Remember, we’re about our members and communities, so credit unions are big on financial education. We’re in the schools, in the community, and even in our own buildings teaching students, members, and employees how to budget, manage finances, and live well.
Numerica’s internal financial education program includes a treasure chest of tips and tools designed to promote employee well-being. Just another great reason to work here!
Numerica’s commitment to enhancing lives, fulfilling dreams, and building communities starts with a promise to our members and staff to help them live well financially. We know that every member’s financial journey is unique, but we also know that a strong relationship with money starts with simple conversations around topics like budgeting, saving, and credit.
Numerica’s Financial Education program is committed to supporting those conversations by becoming the dominant voice in how our members and our community can truly live well. From the classroom to the boardroom, Numerica is with you every step of the way.
