Are you a team player? Are you curious to learn? Are you interested in supporting others as they grow their business? Are you interested in being part of a team that is working to transform and do things differently? If so, LPL Financial is the place for you!

LPL Financial (Nasdaq: LPLA) was founded on the principle that the firm should work for the advisor, and not the other way around. Today, LPL is a leader* in the markets we serve, supporting more than 18,000 financial advisors, 800 institution-based investment programs and 450 independent RIA firms nationwide. We are steadfast in our commitment to the advisor-centered model and the belief that Americans deserve access to personalized guidance from a financial advisor. At LPL, independence means that advisors have the freedom they deserve to choose the business model, services, and technology resources that allow them to run their perfect practice. And they have the freedom to manage their client relationships, because they know their clients best. Simply put, we take care of our advisors, so they can take care of their clients.

Job Overview:

As a Manager within the Client Compensation organization, you will lead a team of 10-12 people who support our Advisors and their staff through phone calls, emails and CRM. The team’s core functions include processing of fees and expenses, entering general and standard adjustments, as well as processing files from sponsors and carriers. You will be responsible for motivating your team in a manner consistent with LPL Financials’ values. No matter the situation, your team’s duty remains the same: Providing our Advisors with timely, correct, and relevant information, when and where they need it so that in turn, they can help their clients achieve their own financial dreams. If you have an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for coaching, facilitation, and addressing challenging interpersonal dynamics, this would be a rewarding career for you.
