David Lerner Associates, a leading investment firm for over 45 years, is recruiting for a full-time Sales Assistant (registered or unregistered) for our Lawrenceville, NJ branch office. If you desire to be part of a successful organization, enjoy working in a support role, and think you might have an interest in the financial services industry, this position may be for you.
This position is responsible for providing professional-level administrative, customer service, and marketing support to our Investment Counselors and their clients. Our ideal candidate will have a strong background in administrative support and be comfortable with all Microsoft Office Suite programs, especially Word and using Outlook calendar for scheduling.
Our Sales Assistants are an integral part of the success of the Investment Counselors they support. A typical day will include answering phones and providing customer service to our investors, and working collaboratively with your assigned Investment Counselor, assisting them as needed. You may be entering/verifying trade activity, preparing income planners, processing new account paperwork, or attending/preparing for a seminar.
Other important daily tasks will include creating and maintaining customer correspondence and providing customers with timely information and prompt resolution to their inquiries and concerns.

More importantly, you must possess excellent interpersonal and organizational skills and the ability to multi-task. This is a busy, fast-paced office…we can teach you about the financial services industry, but holding your own in an environment of quickly changing priorities is up to you.
Our benefits include Medical, Dental, Vision, HSA, FSA, company paid Life, and LTD and 401k. We also offer a competitive salary plus commission sharing depending on license status, generous PTO, and a 35-hour workweek. Successful Sales Assistants experience earnings ranging from $55-80k per year.
