Job Description

At Wells Fargo, we want to satisfy our customers’ financial needs and help them succeed financially. We’re looking for talented people who will put our customers at the center of everything we do. Join our diverse and inclusive team where you’ll feel valued and inspired to contribute your unique skills and experience.

Help us build a better Wells Fargo. It all begins with outstanding talent. It all begins with you.

Wealth and Investment Management (WIM) businesses build enduring client relationships through sound, thoughtful and objective advice. We help our clients by developing individualized plans for everything from retirement goals to business succession planning, to family legacy intentions. Services include comprehensive planning and advice, investment management, brokerage, private banking, estate planning strategies, trust, insurance and both individual and institutional retirement.

The Middle Office Services Group (MOSG) is responsible for supporting several channels within Wells Fargo Advisors (WFA). MOSG supports the Private Client Group (PCG), Wealth Brokerage Services (WBS), WellsTrade, Wells Fargo Advisors Solutions (WFAS), and FiNet (serving brokerage clients out of independently-run offices using WFA platforms and products). The team strives to provide all customers with an outstanding service experience while ensuring the security of the clients’ transactions and accounts. The Securities Operations Service Specialist 4 (SOSS4) will take inbound calls and also make outbound calls to our internal clients related to service requests. For that reason we desire a SOSS4 with a “service minded attitude” who is ready and willing to assist our internal customers with whatever is needed. This team services clients from different parts of the world, with many being native Spanish speakers. The SOSS4 on this team must be able to effectively speak, read, and understand Spanish. Candidates with Portuguese speaking/reading skills would be a plus.

The MOSG team provides a variety of support functions for the field including but not limited to the review and approval of Automated Clearing House (ACH) authorization agreements, Direct to Consumer (DTC) free delivery, check disbursement, partial Automated Customer Account Transfer (ACAT) delivery, account maintenance items, wire, and journal transfer service requests. This SOSS4 role, located in St Louis, MO, will be a Senior Associate working under minimal supervision with some degree of independence. The SOSS4 is responsible for processing work from a queue and handling critical production or escalation issues. Additionally, the SOSS4 may be asked to review and update departmental policies and procedures and participate in projects as needed.

The ideal candidate for this position will be able to quickly adapt to changes and open to obtaining licenses for potential future promotions within the department.

Please note: Middle Office Services Group department hours are 8:00am to 6:00pm, Monday through Friday. The SOSS4 will need to be available to work any shift during these hours.
