For more than 35 years, Scottrade has been providing investors and traders with education, research and tools to help them reach their financial goals. As a result, we have experienced continued stability and steady growth, and our clients have been empowered to invest with confidence.

Scottrade's ultimate mission is to improve lives by helping people overcome barriers to financial success. We attribute our success largely to our Associates and the environment we create for them. In everything we do, our five core values are paramount: trust and integrity, individual development, teamwork, customer service and open communication.

The Opportunity

Scottrade has a strong reputation for service and the tools we provide to traders and investors.  We are currently expanding our services to allow our branches to provide guidance to our clients.   Throughout 2017, our branch associates will acquire additional licensing (Series 66) and training to support this exciting new opportunity.

We are currently hiring branch associates in 3 distinct capacities:

  • Investment Consultant in a branch that is currently offering guidance
  • Investment Consultant in a transitioning branch that will be offering guidance by the end of 2017
  • Investment Consultant Trainee that is working toward licensure 

As an Investment Consultant, you will be the first touch point our clients have with our firm's mission, values and capabilities. You will spend your day learning about and understanding each client's investment needs and guiding them to solutions that best match their goals. Our current solutions are delivered through our well-known independent trading platforms, banking and advisory services.  Our Guidance Branches have the additional opportunity to offer tailored advice to our clients in support of their goals and best interest.

You will be an integral part of a branch office team which includes a Branch Manager and one or more Investment Consultants. The branch network is a performance-driven environment that focuses on personal goals as well as branch and organizational initiatives. Our Investment Consultants strive for excellence and ensure that individual sales and service performance targets are met while meeting operational and compliance requirements.

  • Engage existing or prospective clients in needs-based dialogue to better understand their goals; discover any unstated needs; and guide them toward Scottrade products and services with the intention of ultimately building a lasting client relationship and meeting their financial needs.
  • Cultivate on-going relationships with clients, prospects and internal partners through high-volume outbound and inbound calls, walk-ins, appointments and emails for asset gathering purposes.
  • Using an adaptive, proactive and consultative approach, identify and follow-up on all opportunities to establish or expand relationships.
