We recently paid a visit to Magna, Halewood and met up with Anthony, their ECU Workplace Champion!

Anthony is true advocate for the credit union, and has now been a member of ECU for over 5 years, and in that time, his credit health has drastically changed. Anthony told us all about his past experiences with credit, this included many knock-backs for property rental, even with a guarantor and along with an ex-partner, was refused joint finance for a couch.

This was the turning point for Anthony, and he made a commitment to improve his financial health with our help. 18 months later, he was on the journey to rebuild his credit and was sitting happily in his couch that he purchased by himself, without credit and in his own words, he expressed: โ€œIโ€™m so thrifty now!”

These days, Anthony can access mainstream credit, but still chooses the credit union over regular banks and lending providers. Heโ€™s happy to spread the word across Magna and beyond, of all the benefits of joining the credit union, he says: โ€œEveryone thinks ooh credit union, itโ€™s just a savings thing, but itโ€™s so much more than that!โ€

Since our visit, Anthony has introduced ECU to 14 of his colleagues, they are all now members of the credit union and are saving regularly through payroll deduction. Could this be you? If you think you could be your ‘ECU Workplace Champion’ we’d love to hear from you.
