Job Summary

Fair Credit Foundation is a capacity building status community partner of Salt Lake Community College’s Thayne Center for Service and Learning. The Thayne Center for Service & Learning provides a supportive and inclusive office for students to explore community involvement, leadership, and volunteerism. By providing opportunities in conjunction with local nonprofits we cultivate an environment to test our student’s interests and area of study while assisting them to realize they have the knowledge and skills to affect positive change in our community. Though the position will be a direct placement at the Fair Credit Foundation, the Thayne Center for Service and Learning will administer the orientation, enrollment, and exit from the Community Work Study program and will act as an on-campus supervisor.

Under the supervision of a certified personal finance counselor, the Financial Assistant work study student would gain understanding of personal finances by gathering information from people applying for services in FCF’s financial coaching and monitored savings programs. Position requires good customer service skills, attention to detail and ability to learn and use databases.
