Welcome to the Team, Marcin

Welcome to the Team, Marcin! Here we catch up with Marcin, find out more about him and how he is getting on!

Marcin graduated Manchester Metropolitan University and studied Business Information Technology and after 3 years working with Co-op insurance with their home and car policies, Marcin fancied a change of scenery.

I didn’t really know much about credit unions until I started with Retail Credit Union. I was looking for a career change and wanted a challenge. I applied with the hope my skills and experience (and personality) would be ideal for the role. Luckily, I was what the team were looking for and I have been here for a month now!

I am really enjoying my new role. I am the first point of contact for members regarding their accounts and helping them with any queries. I am still settling in slowly but surely, but I know I will get there. I am determined to learn the processes, so I am confident in the role.

More about Marcin…

I am originally from Poland and moved to Manchester in 2006 at the age of 14. I am a positive person and always trying to make a change so joining Retail CU really played to my strengths.

Travelling is just one of my hobbies and I plan to visit Canada next year as one of my close friends moved out there. I am also really into football, but Manchester is neither red nor blue to me, I am a Barcelona FC fan!

My biggest achievement would be buying my first home. I bought my house 4 years ago and I am proud of myself as it was from my own savings. I think this is why I am enjoying my new role so much – I wholeheartedly believe in the credit union principles of saving money where we can, look how it benefited me!

Welcome to the Team, Marcin! We’re glad to have you onboard!
