Additional Information about Applying for a Career at the Board
To learn more about the work of the Federal Reserve Board and the major career families for which we recruit, please review our brochure, Careers at the Federal Reserve Board (1.2 MB PDF), which describes work life at the Board, the different career families, how they work together, and how each family works to accomplish the Board's mission.
The Board's Division of Reserve Bank Operations and Payment Systems (RBOPS) oversees the Federal Reserve Banks' provision of financial services to depository institutions, fiscal agency services to the Treasury and other government agencies, and significant support functions, such as information technology, financial and cost accounting, audit, human resources, facilities management, and protection. The division also develops policies and regulations to foster the efficiency and integrity of the U.S. payments system, works with other central banks and international organizations to improve the payments system more broadly, and conducts research on payments issues. Many highly skilled professionals are needed to assist the division with meeting its responsibilities. The division's brochure, Career Opportunities in the Division of Reserve Bank Operations and Payment Systems (972 KB PDF) further explains the mission and the positions in the division.
