The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond's Supervision, Regulation and Credit Department (SRC) has an exciting opportunity for entry level Associate Examiners on the Community and Regional Safety & Soundness supervision team. Community and Regional Safety and Soundness examiners evaluate the financial condition and compliance with laws and regulations of state member banks' and bank holding companies up to $100 billion in assets. The Associate Examiner will leverage and develop strong analytical, critical thinking, communication, and leadership skills to effectively fulfill their duties. Analytical analysis includes but is not limited to assessing the adequacy of capital and liquidity positions, earnings performance, asset quality metrics, and exposure to interest rate risk. Critical thinking will need to be applied to appropriately assess the effectiveness of controls and risk management practices at the organization, synthesizing the assessment of risk management and financial analysis into an overall evaluation of the bank's condition. An Associate Examiner will demonstrate and develop leadership skills by leading reviews of key risk areas, training peers, and ultimately leading a team of peers in completing a full examination of a financial institution. Strong written and verbal communication skills will be required to work effectively with peers as well as for handling critical and sensitive interactions with bank leadership, directors, and employees.
If you possess these skills and a desire to demonstrate and develop them on a daily basis in a dynamic work environment, please consider this opportunity. An extensive training program is provided to teach relevant rules and regulations as well as bank specific analysis, while in pursuit of examiner commissioning credentials.

FRB ethics rules generally prohibit employees and their immediate families from owning investments in banks, savings associations or their holding companies (Section 5.3). Additionally, employees engaged in Supervision and Regulation may be subject to borrowing and deposit restrictions. These employees may need to recuse themselves from certain supervisory work based on:
* their borrowing relationships (Appendix B Parts I.1, II.1 and II.2),
* if a financial institution employs a member of the employee's immediate family (i.e. spouse, child, parent, or sibling) (Appendix B Part I.3 and Part II.3),
* if the individual was employed by the financial institution or affiliate within the past 12 months (Appendix B Part I.3 and II.3).
In certain cases, the recusal may be so extensive it could materially reduce the effectiveness of the prospective employee.
