An important part of being a bank cashier is the fact that you are responsible for money. You need to show that you are trustworthy. Therefore make sure that you mention anything which will show this on your CV. This could include working in a retail environment or even volunteering behind stalls at a charity sale. You will also need to show that you have good customer service skills. Again any retail experience would help but anything where you have to deal with others is worth a mention. You will also be working with a team at the branch of the bank and need to show that you are happy to take instruction and work with others. Make sure that in your skills section you mention that you have a good head for figures and that you are sociable. It is important to show that you are reliable, hard-working and work happily as part of a team.

Senior Cashier, Floyds TSB, London
My position in this high street banking organisation was that of Senior Cashier. This meant alongside my normal cashier duties, I was also responsible for safe access, mortgage advisory and a host of additional responsibilities. I still enjoyed interacting with customers and colleagues, but thrived on having the responsibility of access to the safe and a more advisory role. I would also have to supervise the other cashiers and rectify mistakes they made.

Cashier, Batwest, London
Whilst working at Batwest my main duties were to ensure that customers were served for their banking needs. I had to handle large sums of cash, and cheques, and process them as required. I would have to tender balances for customers, and provide withdrawals and deposits. 100% accuracy was a must. It would get busy often so working quickly whilst maintaining this accuracy became a famed skill of mine. I also had to handle identity documents.
January 2006 – January 2008
Trainee Cashier, Northern Flock Building Society, London
Working for a building society really got my career off the ground. I was taken on as an apprentice, and started right at the bottom, learning the systems and processes, before being allowed to handle the cash by checking the floats in the tills, and stock in the counter safes. I then progressed onto handling customers cash by handing the deposits into the drop boxes.
