National award winner Jazzmynne urges more young people to join a credit union

The 24-year-old Wolverhampton winner of a national award for promoting credit unions hopes more young people from the city and South Staffordshire will turn to ethical community banking.

Former Royal School pupil Jazzmynne Dixon, of Penn, has been awarded the prestigious Tracy Slane Award by the Credit Union Foundation for her achievements at Wolverhampton City Credit Union.

The Tracy Slane Award is made to a young person who has demonstrated personal commitment and the ability to significantly influence their credit union. It is awarded by the Credit Union Foundation at the Annual Conference and Annual General Meeting of the Association of British Credit Unions Limited, which this year was held in Manchester.

After joining the not-for-profit community bank in 2012 as its first apprentice, Jazzmynne went on to complete customer service qualifications before helping to launch a drive to recruit more members earlier this year.  She is a familiar face behind the counter at the credit union’s Worcester Street premises.

“I love my work at Wolverhampton City Credit Union. I meet scores of members every day and see the positive impact the credit union is making on people’s lives.  The organization has given me plenty of scope to develop my marketing skills and put my ideas into action.”

Jazzmynne hopes the credit union’s goal to recruit 10,000 members by 2017 will inspire more young people to join.

“The last few years have hit young people quite hard financially. I know some have come unstuck by taking out payday loans. But joining a credit union at an early age can help to form sound financial skills that will last a lifetime.”

Credit union manager Matt Goulding said: “Jazzmynne has made exceptional progress at the credit union through her determination, commitment and flair for customer service and marketing.  After starting as an apprentice just three years ago, she is now effectively third in command. We’re very proud of her.”
