We are going to tell you about the job profile and career path of a clerk and we are also going to tell you how you can shape your career even if you have entered into the banking sector as a clerk.
Job Profile: The clerks are normally assigned front office seats in the bank and they have to directly face the public. If one gets posting in any administrative office or back office of the bank than he or she has to do only back office work and public dealing is not much in such offices. In branches there are separate counters for separate work such as fixed deposits, drafts, cheque postings, clearing, RTGS NEFT, cash receipt and payments etc. Depending upon the size of the branch and work load, the work is allotted on different counters by the Officers of the branch. There may also be a “Single Window Counter” on which all types of work can be performed or there can be dedicated counters for specific works. One should be sharp and quick and should have a pleasing personality to perform the duties of a clerk effectively.
