Client Description

You know some of those reasons you might give for not wanting to work within a financial company’s marketing organization? Yeah, this isn’t that place.

 

Our client is an investment firm which is really breaking that mold. They’re interested in investing in the things that matter. They integrate environmental, social and governance principles into their corporate strategy, and by doing so, are able to have a positive impact on their communities where they live and work.

Whether it’s focusing on reducing their carbon footprint by decreasing carbon emissions, expanding their solar capacity, and making their office locations greener, fostering social responsibility through DE&I, supporting the employment of veterans, and promoting economic development, as well as partnering with clients who are like-minded, this financial company is a cut above.

Our client is on an exciting journey towards full digital transformation. They have accelerated that process aggressively by investing in products and people to help spearhead the journey. There is top-down support by the most senior leaders, who understand how critical it is to optimally digitalize the business to operate more effectively into the future. This is an exciting time to join an organization where you can make a direct impact on the journey to digitalization. 

 

And, as always, freelancing long-term with Aquent gets you access to some pretty cool things like subsidized healthcare, paid sick leave, 401(k), and more.
