Positions as a head teller are commonly available in banks, and they are generally limited to more experienced applicants due to the seniority of the role; this means that most openings require a minimum of one to two years of experience in a similar position, though exact requirements vary depending on the size of the bank and the specific role. In addition, most banks require at least a high school diploma or equivalent, although experience may sometimes be substituted for education. Other skills required for the job include customer service skills, communication abilities, accuracy and attention to detail, and the ability to multitask. The job may also require specific knowledge or training for teller systems and basic software suites such as Microsoft Office.
