    The Finance Department is responsible for monitoring and directing the Bank’s financial health. We work with teams across the Bank to set growth strategies, explore initiatives, observe market trends, monitor risk, tackle the latest regulatory requirements, and plan the Bank’s financial and strategic future.

     

    The ideal candidate has a strong skill-set in areas like finance, statistics, math, or accounting. The candidate should be able to create high-level strategic analyses and dive into detailed Bank financial information. Most importantly, the candidate should be a critical thinker who can connect the dots --for example, by noticing when a change in one report might have downstream effects or influence other work streams. The candidate should be a team player both within the Finance team and throughout the Bank. There will be high exposure to other departments in this role, such as Investor Relations, Accounting, Financial Reporting, and Credit Administration, as well as exposure to Bank executives. People across the Bank, including Bank executives, will depend on this person to provide accurate and timely information and to assist them in understanding differences between distinct datasets. We seek to fill this position with a candidate who will be a self-starter; who will identify opportunities for process improvement; and who will execute process improvements wisely and efficiently.
