Company Profile

Utah First Credit Union began in 1935, in the midst of the Great Depression. A group of German immigrants were having a difficult time finding anyone to help them with the loans they needed to bring their families to America. They banded together to form a grassroots credit union that would serve all members of the community. Here, people found the positive answers and opportunities they needed to build their future. We’ve built our credit union around the idea of strengthening our community and creating excellent relationships. Our mission is to be significant in the lives of our members and we know that our employees are key to achieving this. That is why we offer competitive compensation, comprehensive benefits, and a supportive, team-oriented work environment. We have 9 locations within an hour of our Corporate Office and have plans to open three new branches next year. Located in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah First is the 9th largest credit union in Utah.
