TOWN AND COUNTRY (KMOX) — Scottrade is looking to recruit between 300 and 500 job applicants to a St. Louis area service center before it’s acquired by TD Ameritrade — a deal that’s expected to close sometime next month.
Scottrade brokerage president Peter deSilva says those will come through expansion of an existing service center TD Ameritrade will use — it currently employs about 200.
“They’re growing as a firm,” deSilva told KMOX. “As a consequence of that, they have sites in Omaha, Dallas and St. Louis will be one of their primary operating sites once it’s done. And they’ve targeted, again, about 500 to 700 service center associates for the St. Louis market.”
The service center jobs will range from entry level to stock broker positions — deSilva says those are all expected to be permanent jobs.
Scottrade is recruiting for these new positions through a job fair on Thursday, June 15. It runs from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Marriott West on Maryville Center Dr. in Town and Country.
