Who you are?

You love interacting with people and want to make a difference. You understand what it means to be a champion of a brand. You love client feedback and take pride in being the voice of the company for clients. You understand what it is like to be a client, and appreciate going above and beyond the call of duty to help people and solve their problems.

You possess a passion for financial services and are interested in applying this passion and financial knowledge with clients and partners on a daily basis. Learning about a client's financial situation interests you, as well as educating and helping people to meet their goals.

You are a very strong communicator, both written and verbal, with an eye for detail, and you demonstrate quick thinking and creative problem solving. Your positive attitude reinforces that nothing is too small (or too big) for you to achieve.

More than anything though you want to combine your passion and experience to advance the evolution of hybrid advice.

You have an appreciation for work/life balance and are comfortable working from home on a regular basis.
