A bank tellier is a cashier at a cashpoint or in the bank, who checks customers’ details.
You might have heard them referred to as “councilmen” in some countries, but in the UK, they are called “bank tellers”.
They are the first staff to arrive at your bank to make sure your money is in order and are responsible for all the customer’s details.
They usually get their own pay packets from their employer.
Some bank telliers can be as little as £7.50 an hour, but the minimum wage in the country is currently £6.80 an hour.
The minimum wage has increased by 2.3% since 2014 and is now £6,080 for full-time staff.
Bank tellers can earn as little up to £15 an hour but they are entitled to a £6 hourly bonus.
Why do banks pay them so much?
Bank teller salaries vary between banks.
Some offer a bonus, while others don’t.
How to apply Bank tellier salaries vary depending on the job you are applying for, so you will need to make a few adjustments to the application.

Where to apply Banks usually give the job to the person they think is the best person for the job.
But they can also choose someone from the wider industry.

If you are working part time, you can apply for an additional allowance that you can claim when you leave the job at the end of the month.
