Applied for Hiring Coordinator position at a bank. Any tips to help me land the job?

I currently work as a HR Consultant for a firm that works with city and county govenments. We help them recruit/hire (a little), create job ads, write job descriptions, develop personnel policies, set compensation, etc. I've been working there for a year and a half. The position would be recruiting and hiring hourly employees, maintaining recruitment files, and maintaining HR forms and job descriptions. They want 1-2 years of related experience and proficiency in Office products, with banking experience a plus. I don't have experience in the banking industry, but I do offer an MBA, Bachelor's Degree in HR, and have assisted one client in recruiting and screening applicants for an HR Director position. I have recruited and hired an HR Assistant and two interns for our firm and written/revised many job descriptions. I believe I have the education and experience, but how can I make myself stand out before and after the interview? What are banks in particular looking for?
