Everyone looks to the big banks and Wall Street stalwarts for work. But there are other great opportunities across the country that most job seekers are likely to miss.
Chief Financial Officer
If you think you have to work at a big bank to become a successful CFO, you are mistaken.
Every financial institution (and most other companies) needs a chief financial officer. Not all of them make the jobs public (some promote from within, for example), but there are CFO jobs out there for those who are willing to seek them out.
For those who want to be closer to a more established financial hub, Chicago, Illinois-based Harris & Harris is looking for a new CFO as well.
Chief Compliance Officer
New York-based Partners Group, a global private markets investment management firm, is looking for a Chief Compliance Officer to head up compliance in the Americas.
The firm is looking for someone who can act as the point person for all applicable U.S. regulators and ensure compliance with the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, Investment Company Act of 1940 and other U.S. federal securities laws.
Salary information has not been revealed, though it’s safe to assume that this is going to be a decent-paying gig.
For those of you who would prefer to work for a big bank, UBS is also looking for a new CCO.
Other Notable Jobs
