What does a Senior Personal Banker do?

Personal bankers are the first person a customer will encounter when they step inside of a bank. They are responsible for creating a welcoming environment for a bank's new and regular customers as they help them with their banking needs and activities.

Personal bankers assist with account-related requests including deposits, withdrawals, transfers, or applications for debit and credit cards. They refer customers to a financial expert if needed and advise and sell customers on the bank's financial goods and services that go beyond simple accounts and cards. They assist in the resolution of any issues a customer may have with their banking services and guide them with services including a mortgage, loan, savings and retirement options. Personal bankers open and close accounts as requested, and they monitor customer accounts to ensure information is up-to-date. Personal bankers learn more about a customer's needs and help them find proper solutions within their bank. Personal bankers need a minimum high school diploma or equivalency including a GED and specific on-the-job training as provided by their employer.
