Would you call yourself a relationship builder, a problem solver or a critical thinker? If you answered yes, we need you on our team
At Edward Jones, we are very intentional in calling our field associates branch teams. Most of our teams are two or three people, and in a Branch Office Support Professional role, you are a critical member of that team along with the financial advisor.

You have many responsibilities, but the most important is getting to know your clients so well that you not only help them identify their problems - you see them coming a mile away. You and your financial advisor are essential in working together to help your clients achieve their most cherished financial goals.
