About Us:

German American Bancorp and its family of financial services companies employ talented, compassionate people throughout the organization, truly making German American special. Delivering genuine, customized, personal service with a focus on truly serving customers and communities well, our employees bring the Shield of Excellence commitment to life with each and every interaction.

Summary of Duties and Responsibilities:

We are looking for a service-minded professional like you to drive the future of our business in the communities we serve. As a Commercial Loan Assistant, you will experience all aspects of German American Bank’s culture and values while working with internal and external customers on issues that impact our business. Our blended learning approach includes experiential, hands-on learning where you are able to work alongside your fellow team members to perform meaningful work. With active engagement, you will provide support for multiple officers in the Commercial Group, including the Regional President, Commercial Lenders, and Private Banking Officers.  You will also uphold the German American high standard of excellence as the customer’s go-to person, encouraging customers to call anytime with whatever needs they may have.  With a limited degree of supervision, you are a problem solver, independently handling a wide range of administrative tasks, and so much more.

What You'll Do:

  • The Daily Grind - You will provide excellent support to lenders, allowing them to concentrate their time on sales and new business.  Your support includes making new prospect calls, obtaining preliminary information needed by the lender, assisting with daily customer activities and inquiries, and setting up appointments for the signing of documents.  Communication is key as you work directly with the customer from the beginning, obtaining preliminary information from new prospects and existing clients, all the way through the end, reviewing documents, such as the closing checklist and other documentation for proper execution.  Yours are the final set of eyes, making sure all elements of the transactions are obtained. Other customer contact may include collecting information needed by the lender, credit analyst team, or attorneys, making calls to new prospects, and contacting clients about sensitive matters, including overdrafts and past due payments.
  • You're Part of a Team - You are a member of the Commercial team which includes the Regional President, Commercial Lenders and Sales Assistants, and Private Bankers. You will have extensive interaction with attorneys, the credit department, loan operations, branches and other areas of the company on a daily basis. You have opportunities to work with other areas within banking, wealth management and insurance, as you cross sale opportunities for other products and services that will meet the customer’s needs.  You also assist other business partners, including but not limited mortgage lenders.  This role offers amazing insight into the world of banking, in the commercial area and beyond.
  • And you have to be able to juggle - Multiple and conflicting priorities will come up under specific time constraints. In concert with your leader and other team members, you have to be quick to act when issues arise.

What it Takes:

  • Ability to: communicate effectively (written and verbally), maintain confidentiality, work with speed and accuracy, grasp technical information quickly, and work independently and as a team member.
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Office Suite (Excel, Word, Outlook, PowerPoint)

Bonus Points:
