Join a Team that Invests in you and play an important role in helping others
Edward Jones is a privately-owned company known for building quality, one-to-one relationships with our clients through more than 14,000 Financial Advisors across the United States and Canada. Our goal is to build our branch office network to 20,000 financial advisors and we are searching for talented individuals to help us achieve that vision.
Each financial advisor is supported by a Branch Office Administrator who:
• Partners with the financial advisor to build deep trusted client relationships
• Enables the financial advisor to focus on providing tailored, solutions-based advice, and
• Delivers exceptional client service.
Edward Jones’ financial advisors are known for building quality, one-to-one relationships with their clients - and they're able to maintain those relationships with the help of the BOA.
An effective marketing communications program is only as strong as the person who implements it on a daily basis. Based on the branch team's established processes, the BOA updates prospective client and client data records, execute direct mail programs, assists with planning seminars, and makes follow-up phone calls to set or confirm appointments. The BOA also helps the financial advisor deepen existing client relationships by recognizing opportunities during day-to-day client interactions, proactively preparing a variety of reports for scheduled appointments, and scheduling systematic contact activities.
Region and firm assistance
To improve performance and support our growing firm, we have established a number of regional support programs for all BOAs. While not required, experienced BOAs often volunteer for a program such as mentoring, BOA meeting planning or presentations. They may help with an occasional branch visit, workshop or special project.
Certain BOAs will also have the opportunity to play a larger role in their region if their financial advisor holds a key leadership position. This generally involves scheduling meetings, communicating with other branches and compiling reports. Many branches also host a financial advisor trainee for several weeks. In this case, the BOA can be called upon to help the new financial advisor become familiar with processing systems and office record keeping.
This position is ideal for a well-organized person who enjoys multi-tasking and working with both technology and people. Daily office administration duties include assisting the financial advisor in creating and meeting business plans, overseeing appointment setting and schedules, and processing deposits and transactions.

• Exceptional client-service abilities
