eFinancialCareers brings you vacancies and internships in the retail banking sector.
The retail sector of banking deals with the general public.
Although traditionally retail banks have a high street presence, it is becoming more common for banking to be conducted online, and a number of retail banks have no physical locations at all.
Beyond personal current accounts and savings vehicles, retail banks also organise personal loans and mortgages, and may offer other financial products such as insurance.
Retail banks will usually also have a wealth management division, responsible for managing relationships with clients of high net worth.
Retail Banking Careers
Junior positions within retail banks tend to be customer facing, handling everyday transactions, complaints and queries. The most junior positions are often at the counter.
In a slightly more senior position, advisors work in the branch to provide customers with advice regarding savings, investment, debt and insurance products.
These roles are also performed by customer service teams in call centres.
Within branches and call centres there are a range of management level positions including team leader and branch manager.
Within the banks larger infrastructure, there are a range of job opportunities including product development, marketing, and positions in operational support functions like HR and IT.
In such a highly regulated industry, risk management and compliance are vital functions. Those specialising in these areas can enjoy a varied career in retail banking with the opportunity to switch from bank to bank, as their specialist risk management or compliance knowledge and experience will be highly sought after.
Graduate Banking Jobs
Retail banks target graduate leavers to enter fast-track management training programmes. During this time the graduate trainee will learn about the bank's products and infrastructure, while gaining exposure to a range of functions within the organisation. At the end of the training period they will be expected to take up a managerial position within the bank.
