What you’ll do
As part of Bank of the West, you’ll be making a positive impact on the environment, your community, and the planet at a leading sustainable bank.
We’re looking for an enthusiastic and personable leader with significant banking experience to fill the role of Assistant Branch Manager. This is a high-responsibility leadership role that supports the Branch Manager.
As an Assistant Branch Manager, you will be responsible for handling transactions, identifying areas of need, and developing new account relationships while expanding existing ones. You won’t have formal management duties, but you will fill in for the Branch Manager in their absence, and guide branch staff on sales, services, and lobby management.
Broad responsibilities mean this is a role that’s never boring. One day you might coordinate sales activities. The next day you might accept items for collection, lead end-of-day activities, and handle vault duties. Other fundamental parts of the job will include transaction processing, new account sales, customer servicing, and referral generation.
As the Branch Manager’s second-in-command, you’ll give input on hiring, staff Human Resource matters, annual performance targets, and evaluation feedback. You’ll also be a mentor to more junior branch staff, helping them to develop their own skills.

- Minimum 5 years of prior relevant experience
- University degree or equivalent experience preferred
- A personable nature and good customer service skills, both verbal and written, as well as strong presentation skills

- A strong grasp of risk management, and of regulatory and compliance controls
- Strong problem-solving, planning, and organization skills
- Experience leading a team while also handling an individual workload

You’ll also be working for a place with a proven commitment to diversity, starting at the very top with our CEO and extending through all levels of the organization.
You’ll do meaningful work that makes a real difference in the world. We are leveraging the power of finance to help protect the planet, improve people’s lives, and strengthen communities. As part of BNP Paribas, you’ll also be working for a global leader in positive banking, and the ninth-largest bank in the world.
