About the Opportunity

SRC is hiring to fill multiple openings for Bank Examiners across teams in our Regional Bank (RBO) and Large Bank (LBO) units.

We are looking for experienced individuals with broad experience in at least one or more of the following risk dimensions: credit risk, financial risk, operational resiliency, technology risk, enterprise risk management, or corporate governance/audit. The successful candidates will have the ability to make connections and associations across all risk types.

What You Will Do:

  • Perform supervisory work within field of focus, ensuring safe and sound operations and compliance with applicable laws and regulations.

  • Plan and execute full-scope and/or targeted risk examinations at designated portfolio financial institution(s), often while leading teams of examiners and/or risk specialists.

  • Review workpapers, draw conclusions, and communicate examination results to supervised institutions and internal stakeholders.

  • Prepare supervisory products as required by the role, such as risk assessments, routine continuous monitoring reports, supervisory plans, and/or report of examinations.

  • Provide meaningful and timely feedback regarding exam staff performance.

  • Satisfactorily complete assignments within established timeframes, largely independently.

  • Contribute to policy and practice development by researching, identifying, and surfacing risk issues and emerging trends, including horizontal assessment of risk management practices.


  • 3+ years of bank regulatory or equivalent industry experience.

  • An active commission from a federal or state banking regulatory agency is highly preferred.

  • Preferred experience includes, but is not limited to expertise in at least one of the following:

    • Credit risk management

    • Financial analysis and/or risk management

    • Corporate governance / enterprise risk management

    • Operational resilience including information technology and cybersecurity

    • Internal audit

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent related work experience, with preferred emphasis in Finance, Economics, Business, Accounting or related field.

  • Occasional travel is required and will vary depending on the location of the successful candidate, with flexibility for work/live balance.

Other Requirements and Considerations:

  • Candidates should review the Bank’s Employee Code of Conduct to ensure compliance with conflict of interest rules and personal investment restrictions.

  • Employees who work at and/or visit another Federal Reserve entity or outside business as part of their job duties are required to comply with any onsite safety and health protocols of those organizations (including, but not limited to, requirements to vaccinate or test, mask, social distance, etc.).

  • This position requires access to confidential supervisory information and/or FOMC information, which is limited to "Protected Individuals" as defined in the U.S. federal immigration law. Protected Individuals include, but are not limited to, U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, and U.S. permanent residents who either are not yet eligible to apply for naturalization or who have applied for naturalization within the requisite timeframe. Candidates who are not U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents may be eligible for the information access required for this position and sponsorship for a work visa, and subsequently for permanent residence, if they sign a declaration of intent to become a U.S. citizen and meet other eligibility requirements.

  • In addition, all candidates must undergo an enhanced background check and comply with all applicable information handling rules, and all non-U.S. citizens must sign a declaration of intent to become a U.S. citizen and pursue a path to citizenship.

  • Under Conflict-of-Interest guidelines administered by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, examining personnel may not participate on an examination of a financial institution or affiliate if the examiner was employed by the financial institution or affiliate within the past 12 months.

  • Please review Bank’s Employee Code of Conduct to ensure there are no major issues related to your previous employment and current financial interests (relevant sections are 5.3 and Appendix B, Parts I, II and III). 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’s job responsibilities.

  • The hiring range of the Examiner – Intermediate is $80,500 – $105,600 annually (3+ years of experience)

  • The hiring range of the Examiner – Senior is $114,000 – $149,600 annually (5+ years of experience)

  • The hiring range of the Examiner – Advanced is $126,900 – $166,500 annually (9+ years of experience)

  • Salary offered will be based on the job responsibilities and the individual’s knowledge, skills, and experience as defined in the job qualifications, may vary from listed range.
