The Consumer Lending team at UW Credit Union is growing! We are hiring for a Consumer Lending Specialist II (Spanish Bilingual Required) to join our team, and help our members achieve their financial dreams!

As the Consumer Lending Specialist II, along with your teammates, you will play a vital role in the review and approval of member consumer loan applications.

Consumer Lending Specialists see every ‘you’ – from helping a member with an auto loan, a credit card application, a personal loan, to a home equity line of credit. UW Credit Union Lending Specialists are not solely driven by sales results. True to our reputation, Lending Specialists at UW Credit Union take time to provide quality solutions unique to each member.

Do you have a desire to collaborate with your peers, and contribute to a culture of growth and innovation?
