Aston University has joined forces with Citysave, a credit union based in Birmingham, to provide Aston staff with access to a regular savings plan, budgeting advice and affordable and ethical loans.
A credit union is owned, managed and operated by the members and the benefits include:
Access to a secure, regular savings plan
Facility to pay savings directly from payroll (for eligible employees)
Easy access to affordable loans with no arrangement fees or early repayment fees
Free life cover on all loans

It is easy to join and anyone who lives or works in Birmingham can apply to join Citysave.

If you wish to take advantage of the payroll deduction facility, once you have set up an account with Citysave, you will also need to complete an authorisation form and return it to Denise Aldred Payroll Manager, Human Resources.
