If this sounds like the right management opportunity for you, apply today!



In 1935, during the Great Depression, community leaders came together to form the Sycamore Community Credit Union for the benefit of the people of Sycamore and the surrounding areas. In 1996, after having grown to serve other communities in the DeKalb County area, we changed our name to Illinois Community Credit Union. Though our name changed, our commitment to serving our community as a not-for-profit credit union remained the same. Today, we continue to look to the future and improve the well-being of our members with lower fees, great rates, and new products.

Employees who feel valued tend to be happier and more engaged at the office. That's why we offer a work environment that nurtures, teaches, and fulfills. As an employee of Illinois Community Credit Union, you have the opportunity to touch lives and make a difference in your community, which is a true reflection of the credit union credo of "people helping people." We are also proud to offer our team members competitive pay and comprehensive benefits.



As our Lending Manager, you are responsible for the operations of our loan department, including directing loan origination processes and underwriting practices. You oversee a staff of three loan processors, one underwriter, and one lending clerk. Under your excellent leadership, they are inspired to take pride in their work. You monitor staffing levels, interview, hire, train, schedule, appraise performance, address complaints, and resolve problems. As you monitor advancements in lending processes, you initiate and develop methods for your team to streamline lending practices as well as cross-sell other credit union products and services.

You maintain excellent customer service standards both internally and externally while ensuring loans are granted that are to the benefit of both the borrower and the credit union. With compliance to applicable regulations and company policies, you make decisions to approve or decline loans from all sources, including on-line, indirect, and in-house loans. You establish credit limits on accounts based on credit union policies and such standard lending standards as debt-to-income ratio, creditworthiness, collateral, capacity to repay, and character of the borrower.

You implement an internal audit program to maintain continued compliance. To ensure constant delivery of expected contracts, you continually build relationships with dealer finance executives and sales staff. You also maintain good relations with credit union leagues and CUNA as well as vendors for credit insurance, vehicle service contracts, GAP waiver contracts, and other industry services. By preparing various reports and analyses of daily, weekly, and monthly lending activity, you provide support for the Director of Lending. You get great satisfaction out of helping us execute our mission of improving the financial well-being of our member-owners!
