NCUA named a “Best of the Best” place for veterans to work

U.S. Veterans Magazine Rates Agency Highly for Employment Opportunities

ALEXANDRIA, VA (May 27, 2014) — The National Credit Union Administration has been rated as a “Best of the Best” place to work in terms of opportunities for veterans from U.S. Veterans Magazine.

“The men and women who’ve served in our armed forces have given their time and talents to our country, and they acquired valuable skills during their service,” NCUA Board Chairman Debbie Matz said. “As part of our efforts to make NCUA an employer of choice, we want to be certain veterans know about the kinds of job opportunities available at the agency. We also want access to this group of talented workers with a commitment to public service. That makes this recognition particularly satisfying to us.”

In September 2013, NCUA joined forces with the Department of Veterans Affairs to create more employment opportunities for veterans through the Feds for Vets program. The agency’s ongoing efforts to promote employment to veterans includes targeted outreach to veterans and the Pathways Program, which aims outreach at entry-level candidates, including disabled veterans, and provides flexibility to veterans who are recent graduates.

To date, 47 percent of NCUA’s new hires in 2014 have been veterans, and they make up 16 percent of the agency’s overall workforce.
