Financial Wellness education is a big opportunity in our communities. In response to that need, Key's branches have become more advice centered. We equip our Bankers with a state-of-the-art digital tool that empowers them to have deeper conversations with clients. This tool allows us to deliver expert advice to our clients and gets them thinking about important questions related to their finances.

The financial wellness platform does the heavy lifting in these conversations. You don't have to be a financial expert to be a successful Personal Banker, you just need to have a strong desire to help people make better financial choices and be good at starting conversations, quickly building a rapport, and asking deeper questions. You really need to love the sales process, providing solutions to clients' needs, and the excitement of achieving sales goals to be successful in this role.

You'll work with the public. Empathy and a willingness to treat our clients like you would a family member is critical. Everyone is at a different place on their financial journey and we are here to help them in any way we can.
