Status of Hiring in the Financial Advisory Industry

Has the Pandemic Made it Easier?  The short answer is “No”

So here we are in 2021.  There does seem to be some light at the end of the tunnel with the vaccine roll out and although it has not gone as smoothly as we might have hoped, there does seem to be some momentum now.

As we are all well aware, many industries have been hit hard by the Pandemic with restaurants probably topping the charts.  However, we are not seeing this impact on the Financial Services industry and with the exception of the layoffs currently happening because of the TD Ameritrade/Schwab merger, the demand for top personnel in this industry continues to grow.

We do a great deal of hiring here at The Strategic Implementer through our primary website and through  We currently have 14 open searches going on, some for our retainer clients and some for non-retainer clients. They include administrative assistants, portfolio management assistants, financial advisors and operations managers.  Firms are continuing to grow, and our retainer clients are reporting excellent growth.

Why am I telling you this?  Because if you are going to need a new team player on the board in the next six months, I encourage you to start your search now.  You can do it yourself (you can follow this link to our very detailed process (TSI Hiring Process)  or you can give us a call (Give Us a Call) and see if we can take this process off your plate.

However you decide to proceed, don’t wait until the last minute.  High performing team players are always in high demand no matter the economic climate.

Thanks for listening, Ginny
