Do you love community banking? We do! Come be a part of writing the best local small business success stories!

As a result of recent promotions and Bank growth, we are looking for an experienced credit analyst that is interested in joining our loan production team as a member of the Credit Department. Qualifications include a bachelor’s degree with additional career related coursework, 5+ years of commercial credit analyst experience in a community bank setting and being currently employed as a mid-career analyst who is looking to stay in that role but expand your contribution and skill set. Ideal candidates have a relentless pursuit of exceptionalism, a great attitude, high integrity, and are inquisitive by nature with strengths in accuracy, customer service, collaboration, digital proficiency, big picture understanding, and role leadership.

Job Summary
Key responsibilities include partnering with the commercial team, credit analysis and underwriting, credit presentation preparation, collateral analysis, and various credit related projects. BankCherokee’s senior level analysts also have the opportunity and are encouraged to develop specialty skills aligning to their personal strengths and interests (i.e. – appraisal review, environmental review, portfolio risk analysis, SBA specialization, technology implementation, loan policy updates and revisions, and junior analyst training and mentorship to name a few). This is a full-time role on the Credit Department Team at the Smith Avenue Branch, with some flexibility for hybrid remote/onsite work once established. We are a tight-knit, tenured team that values and depends on the contributions of each member, encourages education and development, and provides the opportunity for career growth in the field.

We offer competitive compensation and benefits; the role is market priced based on length and type of credit analyst experience.
