Offering you a great deal for your staff
Employer Partnership Schemes offer benefits for both your staff and your organisation.
North London Credit Union has agreements with a number of employers, both large and small, enabling their employees to save with us direct from their salary - no mess, no fuss, no temptation to spend. Our Partners come from a range of different organisations but the one thing their employees have in common is that they continue to make their savings regularly - something many agree they wouldn't do without payroll deduction.
If you are employed by one of these employers you can join the payroll deduction scheme:

Saving via payroll can offer a buffer if things go wrong when you least expect them. Even a small amount of savings can soften the blow and help your employees avoid resorting to expensive borrowing.
Financial worries are a huge concern to employers and workers alike: debt can cause stress and depression, which can lead to absences and reduced productivity – a vicious circle that leaves everyone worse off.
Encouraging your employees to sign up to North London Credit Union's payroll savings and loans scheme can help reduce your staff turnover and absenteeism costs associated with financial stress in employees, as well as meeting your corporate social responsibility objectives by keeping money in the local community and supporting a not-for-profit, ethical lender.

Will it cost us anything to set up a payroll deduction scheme?
No, setting up a scheme is completely free and there are no charges for payroll deduction services. The only cost is the time taken to process deductions and provide us with a confirmation schedule each month.
Is the money safe?
We are fully regulated and your employees' savings are completely protected by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
Will I know account details for my staff?
No, details of member accounts are confidential and will not be given to anyone else without their permission.
If a staff member leaves and has a loan, is the employer liable for repayments?
No. The contractual arrangement is between the credit union and the borrower. They are still responsible for making repayments and we ask that you inform us if you're aware that an employee is leaving as soon as possible, so that we can contact them in time to make alternative payment arrangements.
