Northern Credit Union

Job Type: Other

Position title: Director

Job type: Board of Directors 

Job Description: 

Facing increased regulatory compliance within the financial services industry and intense competition driven by digital realities, our directors understand the need to continually re-invent ourselves to ensure we stay relevant for our 70,000 plus members. Our directors understand the new realities and are committed to the strategic changes required – even when they are challenging. This has led to an increased emphasis on the need for an experienced Board of dedicated individuals. Your Northern Credit Union directors must collectively have the essential skills and expertise to successfully govern a financial cooperative with over $1.5 billion in assets, with Northern being the 9th largest credit union in Ontario.

We are looking for leaders in our communities who share Northern Credit Union’s values, reflect the diversity of our membership and have strong business skills and relevant board experience. Our 12 member Board works closely with the executive management team to guide and strengthen the performance of Northern Credit Union for the benefit of all members, employees and the communities we serve. In order to meet the challenges of today and into the future we need:

  • An experienced accounting professional with a designation (such as CPA) bringing financial expertise in internal/external audit, governance and risk management.
  • Familiarity and understanding of the financial services industry will be an asset including understanding emerging opportunities, risks and technologies in the sector.
  • An experienced professional with a background in IT governance, digital strategy, overseeing complex technologies, cyber-security and IT projects.

The successful individual(s) will contribute to effective and efficient boardroom dynamics at Northern, be inquisitive, collegial and collaborative, and demonstrate flexibility and diversity of thought. This individual must demonstrate an ability to meet the eligibility requirements outlined in Northern’s corporate by-laws and to represent Northern’s Vision of Engaged Members and Outstanding Experiences.

Northern’s Board meets on a quarterly basis and each Board member is expected to serve on two board committees for a total time commitment of 16-20 days a year.


Closing date: Deadline for submission is 4:00 pm on February 15, 2019
