There are a wide variety of banking jobs from working in a retail bank to working commercially. Retail bankers often work in high street branches, and increasingly via telephone and in online services. Within retail banking there is also the opportunity to go into private banking. Private bankers tend to work with individuals who have a high net worth, who are often defined as those with more than £1 million to invest. Commercial banks serve businesses, helping them understand their options and develop business plans. In all cases, you have a responsibility to ensure that the customer remains with the company. Good people skills, the ability to deal with high pressure situations and teamworking skills are requirements in banking.
