Bilingual Bank Telling is one of the few career fields that offers opportunities and the training needed to advance professionally without a college degree. And Colorado’s growing Latino population means Spanish speaking bank tellers are in high demand.
Need for Banking Services Among Latinos
Latinos are one of the most underbanked and unbanked populations. Bank on Denver estimates that at least 7,000 Latino households in Denver alone are unbanked.
Banks are realizing the huge, untapped potential they have for customers among Latinos. And they see bilingual tellers as a way to reach out to the Latino community and create cultural awareness and trust, which is why there has been a surge in demand for these positions.
Benefits of a career in the banking industry include:
- High demand for bilingual workers
- Steady hours of operation
- Employee benefits
Banks typically offer partial tuition reimbursement to help pay for further education if employees study a field relating to the banking industry.
Bilingual bank tellers are far from limited in their future career options within the banking industry. Most people tend to forget that a bank is a business, offering positions not only in customer service and finance, but marketing, social media, product development, public relations and much more. As they become more experienced, bank tellers have a whole world of opportunity opened up to them.
Requirements for bilingual bank teller positions include:
- High school diploma or GED certificate
- Conviction free background check for the past 7 years
- Good credit history
Qualities needed to succeed in the banking industry include:
- Communication skills
- Interpersonal skills
- Organizational skills
