We're a financial cooperative that does things differently

That means we create innovative yet simple solutions to help people achieve their financial dreams and life goals. Our work environments will accelerate your personal and professional growth inspiring you to lead with courage. We strive to be an employer of choice, not just for what we do, but how we do it.

Shared workplace values are the secret of our success

Attracting talented individuals who believe the same things we do is crucial in serving members with remarkable banking experiences. It’s why we’re upfront about who we are and what you can expect when you apply for a career at our credit union.

We know you can do great things

We see what you have to offer—your skills, knowledge and experience can elevate our organization and help members and communities thrive. Our promise is to do the same for your career development. We support you to do things that matter and celebrate your accomplishments.

Feel genuinely rewarded

You want an enriching employee experience where you feel valued for the work that you do. Here you can tailor personal rewards to your financial, physical and mental wellbeing and social connectedness: employee banking advantages, customizable benefits, group RRSP matching, flexible work arrangements and performance-based compensation—to name just a few.

Make meaningful impact

Everything you do as a First West employee helps our members and our community. As a co-operative, it’s in our roots to improve the lives of the people we serve. Whether it’s providing expert financial advice, volunteering at a local food bank or teaching a course on financial literacy, you can change people’s lives. That’s a great feeling.

Thrive in an inclusive environment

You celebrate your individuality, and so do we. We’re building a culture of belonging by breaking down barriers and removing stigma, enabling opportunities for your involvement and influence. We’re upfront and intentional about fostering a common understanding around equity, diversity and inclusion at our credit union. It’s an ongoing journey you have a hand in shaping.

Elevate your potential

Wherever you imagine your career headed, we want to help you advance toward your goal. We’re continuously improving as an organization and support you to do the same.
