Careers in Additional Departments
Although the St. Louis Fed works closely with banks and the banking system, much of what we do requires professionals with skills that aren't specifically related to banking. IT professionals, instructional technologists, graphic designers, project managers and procurement specialists are as much at home as bank examiners, economists, auditors, accountants and analysts. Our organization depends upon the unique talents and skills of every member of our team to keep operations running smoothly.
The Audit department evaluates the adequacy of the Bank's systems of internal control, the extent of compliance with established procedures and regulations, and the effectiveness of Bank operations. This department is primarily staffed with auditors at all levels.
Community Development staff work at the local, regional and national level to promote the economic resilience and mobility of low- and moderate-income and underserved individuals and communities.
