We’re recruiting examiners – our “boots on the ground” within our supervision team – to work daily with large banks and nonbank companies to ensure compliance with consumer financial protection laws and to promote a market for fair, transparent, and competitive consumer financial products and services.
Our consumer-centered approach to supervision is based on three main principles:
- Focus on risks to consumers in the policies and practices of consumer financial providers,
- Analyze available data on the activities of providers, on the markets where they operate, and on the risks to consumers, and
- Apply consistent standards in supervision of both bank and nonbank consumer financial companies.
You would work from a home office in the city of your choice. Typically, you would be near a major travel hub or airport, and travel to the companies you supervise about 80 percent of the time.
The day-to-day work involves reviewing and analyzing data, conducting on-site exams, and being in regular communication with the companies you supervise and other regulators, as well as follow-up monitoring.
In their own words, here’s what some current examiners have to say about working here.
Nicole Salemno, Examiner, Northeastern Region:
You should apply because we need you. This is not a job where you will sit back and ‘learn the ropes.’ Rather, you will be given every opportunity to exercise your unique strengths. You will learn and grow, but your active participation will be expected from day one.
Micah Robbins, Examiner, Northeastern Region:
The competency and dedication of employees in this bureau is refreshing and reaffirming. You get to make a visible difference in the consumer landscape.
Heidi White, Field Exam Manager, Midwest Region:
Candidates should apply who want to make a difference, work hard in a team environment, and embrace the goals and mission of the agency. In return, candidates receive excellent job benefits, challenging work assignments, opportunities for career advancement, and the satisfaction of knowing they had the ability to impact millions of consumers.
If you’re interested in joining us, you have until midnight, Friday, March 22 to apply.
