Loans Officer

Loans Officer

Temporary Full Time

Maternity Leave replacement for up to 24 months

Our Loans Officers are available to our members through in-person meetings, phone calls, and other forms of electronic communication.  The ability to provide expert advice when it’s truly needed is crucial to meeting our members needs.  We know our members, and to see their successes is extremely rewarding.  The Loans Officer is responsible for oversight of their own lending portfolio, which may include consumer, agriculture, and commercial files.  Each portfolio has a different level of complexity and presents the opportunity for new learnings each and every day!  The role of Loans Officer can be challenging, yet rewarding, where the reward far outweighs the challenge!

You have a desire to learn and have an in-depth understanding of lending practices and procedures.  The ideal candidate will have many years of service in the credit union system, and experience as a lender.    You have an appetite for risk, and know when to take the risk, and when to shy away from it.  You will be responsible to mitigate risk of default.  When required you will initiate action to collect on delinquent loans, as necessary.

While you may not have lending experience, you may have experience in the financial services industry and are eager to take the next step to grow your career.  We want to hear from you too, we are committed to training the right candidate!

Building relationships is important. In fact, it is essential to our business.  The other key part of the Loans Officer role is to foster new relationships and grow new business.  You are not afraid to pick up the phone and call a potential member.  You enjoy the rush of that first contact, and have no problem popping into a business for the first time to meet the owner and take those first steps in fostering a relationship.  When the time is right, you’ll ask for the business!

This exciting opportunity is available in our Kelvington Branch.  From time to time, you may be required to travel to our other branches as well.  You will participate in a comprehensive development plan, equipping you with the knowledge and tools to confidently assist our members, and grow your career.  With upcoming pending retirements, there is great potential for this temporary position to turn into a permanent position in one of our branches!  You will be part of an amazing team, working together to meet the member’s and organization’s goals!
