Most people think working in the bank is all about handling money while indeed bank employees do more than just handling your money, they have to be knowledgeable about a variety of financial products.

In Kenya, staff salaries can start from as low as Kshs. 10,000  per month but can advance to Kshs. 3 million in management positions, depending on the bank and the job responsibilities.

There are over 3o registered banks in Kenya. Some of them are local banks while a few others are international banks. To qualify to work in a bank, you are required to have a diploma, a degree or related course like CPA, depending on the job description.

For some other positions, previous experience in a similar or a related filed may be required. However, most banks still prefer employing fresh graduates straight from college and then train them.

Working in a bank is not just about cashing cheques and opening safety deposit boxes. There is a lot of work that goes behind closed doors. Bank workers work with customers on a wide range of services, from offering legal and financial advice to sales of financial services products, among others tasks.

In addition, your interpersonal as well as communication skills should be excellent as you will be dealing with clients most of the time.

When it comes to payments, there is no set salaries and how much each bank decides to pay it’s workers is determined by many factors. Most banks pay good salaries to their staffs while others not so good, especially if you have to consider the rising cost of living.
