UNI Financial Cooperation to expand

FREDERICTON (GNB) – UNI Financial Cooperation plans to create up to 100 jobs in the province over the next four years.

“We are thrilled to work with companies like UNI to increase competitiveness and foster growth of the New Brunswick business community,” said Arlene Dunn, minister responsible for Opportunities NB. “I am pleased to see UNI build on their incredible 85 years of business in the province and continue their investment in New Brunswick.”

The financial institution is eligible for an investment of up to $1.5 million from Opportunities NB to support these hirings. It is estimated that creating the positions would generate $2 million in provincial income taxes and add $59.2 million to the province’s GDP over four years.

“UNI’s top priority of providing quality service has pushed our financial co-operative to continually adapt to the shifting needs of a fast-changing financial world that continues to evolve,” said Robert Moreau, UNI’s president and CEO. “As a result of our significant growth, we are actively hiring staff with support from Opportunities NB. This valuable partnership that UNI Financial Cooperation has with Opportunities NB will further our growth as we add to our team of over 1,000 staff across New Brunswick.”

The new jobs will be in the fields of information technology and business intelligence capabilities; customer and advisory services for individuals and businesses; corporate project management; communications and marketing; compliance; and talent management.
