Financial Advisors enjoy the benefits of a highly regarded career. The income potential and quality of life are enormous. Although the first few years require a tremendous effort, the payoffs are equally tremendous. Being a trusted professional who can change the lives of your clients, creating their financial well-being and your own, is immensely gratifying.
We partner with one of the premier names in the financial services industry to present exceptional professionals who wish to transition their careers to become Financial Advisors. Our client is looking for accomplished, driven achievers who are well-established within their communities and will, once licensed and trained, have the ability to grow a thriving business. If you are degreed, stable, well-connected, polished, articulate, driven, and have mastered the consultative sales process, this may be the right career for you.
This is an opportunity to become a fully-licensed Financial Advisor with a distinguished full-service firm, known for its best practices in developing new FA's. If selected, you will receive a base salary and benefits while completing a study program and test for your Series 7 and 66 exams (unless you already hold those licenses). You will undergo in-depth product and services training. You will receive mentoring and ongoing support as you build your business, and will continue to receive a base salary during the first two years, followed by additional bonuses in the third year. The Financial Advisor role is a full commission position, but our client provides new Financial Advisors with the financial stability needed to build a client base during the first few years. Top FA's can see low six figures in their first year but typically, good FA's see six figures at the end of their second year.
Demand for our candidates is at an all-time high in most locations across the United States. Our Executive Recruiters are searching for the best of breed from multiple occupations. Experienced sales professionals, entrepreneurs, managers, teachers, marketing pros, business development experts, engineers, business owners, accountants, and many other professionals bring transferrable skills sets that are desirable to this occupation.

We understand our client's expectations and will coach you throughout the process of candidacy to give you every advantage. We do not charge you for our services; our client is glad to pay our fee once you achieve placement.
