In 2011, to allow for a cohesive marketing strategy, the common bond was increased once more to encompass the whole of the UK. As the membership grew so did the range of products offered. Members had a range of specific accounts as follows, Christmas
Savings, Last Day retirement day account, revolving credit and the holiday savings account. To help provide employment and training for local young people, in 2011 it was decided to introduce an apprenticeship scheme in the areas of customer service and financial
services. To date 9 young people have completed their apprenticeships with Commsave, gaining various qualifications such as Customer Service and Business Administration, and they are all encouraged to continue to advance their professional qualifications with
full support of the credit union. Commsave launched a Blue Acorn ISA (Individual Savings Account) in 2012. This account enables members to benefit from a government tax-free dividend arrangement.By the end of September 2014 the savings and loans had both grown
by more than 200%, opening up a variety of opportunities for the coming years. Despite the pressures of the financial climate, by ensuring that member’s needs are at the heart of strategic decision making, Commsave Credit Union has continued to grow
in both size and strength, seen significant growth up to 2016. Commsave Credit Union serves 17,000 members who work in the communications industry across Britain and are saving £27 million and borrowing £24 million from their credit union.
Commsave has assets worth £35 million.
