FHFA is Hiring Examiners! The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), the safety and soundness regulator of the Federal Home Loan Bank System and regulator and conservator of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs)), has several openings for both junior and senior- level Market Risk, Credit Risk, and Operational & Information Technology/Security Risk Examiners.

If you are a professional with experience in financial institution examinations, secondary mortgage markets, affordable housing policy, financial economics, risk management, or complex data analysis, consider applying to one of our many vacancies.

As a Senior Examiner, you will have the responsibility for planning, organizing and completing examinations of the GSEs in the areas of market, credit or operational & information technology/security risks of financial institutions.

  • Communicates examination findings and their bases to senior management to elicit management's views. During the course of the examination, the Senior Examiner facilitates the flow of information and ensures an accurate understanding of the key risks, processes and controls, and the factual basis for examination findings.
  • Documents examination findings through a combination of GSE source documents, report comments and other examination workpapers that address both management practices and condition. Workpapers are completed in accordance with FHFA's workpaper standards, as provided in the examination.

Analyzes banking, financial, housing, operational, and mortgage market developments affecting the entities. Provides written analysis and recommendations for supervisory issues requiring FHFA approval or attention.
