- The hiring is part of its ongoing plan to fill client service, technology and other roles across multiple U.S. locations.
- The firm is also hiring in Dallas-Forth Worth, Omaha, St. Louis, San Francisco, Phoenix and Denver.
- However, the firm has also slashed more than 1,000 jobs since completing its acquisition of TD Ameritrade.
Charles Schwab has “nearly 450 open roles” in Austin, Texas, that it is currently looking to fill, a company spokesman told ThinkAdvisor on Friday.
Those new hires will join the “nearly 2,750 employees currently based there,” he said.
The hiring plan is part of the firm’s “continuing” plan to fill client service and technology roles “as well as most other functions” across multiple U.S. locations, he said.
That plan was first announced by Schwab in July, when it said in a news release that “through its Schwab and TD Ameritrade broker dealers” it was “currently hiring in key markets nationwide, part of an expansion of the company’s ongoing recruitment efforts.”
At the time, it said that “open positions span functions across Schwab and TD Ameritrade, with a particular emphasis on financial consultants, client service, licensed representatives, and technology professionals, across the company’s employment centers, including Dallas-Forth Worth, Omaha, St. Louis, Austin, San Francisco, Phoenix and Denver.”
The firm is “hiring aggressively across Schwab and TD Ameritrade” in those markets, Schwab spokeswoman Mayura Hooper told ThinkAdvisor at the time.
