Headquartered in Burlington, VT, with offices in Portsmouth, NH and Shelburne, VT, we are looking to expand our footprint and hire financial advisors in Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and eastern New York communities.

You will take initiative to develop leads, identify opportunities and take them to the next level. Along with our investment team, you will work with clients to understand their risk tolerance and investment objectives to develop a financial portfolio that best fits their needs. Once on board, you will work to maintain on-going clear and conscientious communication with all clients consistent with the superior customer service standards at One Day In July.
