All candidates who join the Bank of America family share several powerful traits. Below are some characteristics we look for when filling positions across the company. Understanding these qualities can help you determine if you are a good fit for us, and if we are a good fit for you.
We are a financial services organisation that serves three groups of clients – individuals, companies and institutional investors. Our clients have unique needs and we are passionately committed to serving them. We want individuals who share this passion, who are excited to come to work and look for new ways to better serve our clients and make financial lives better.
What would you like the power to do? At Bank of America we ask this question every day of all those we serve. It is at the core of how we live our values, deliver our purpose and achieve responsible growth. Our purpose is to help make financial lives better through the power of every connection. This is the foundation for how we operate our business, work with our clients and make a positive impact in communities around the world.
“Working at Bank of America for over two decades serving both external and internal clients has reinforced the value of a positive attitude above all else. The outcomes include lasting relationships, loyalty and the right results.” — Deirdre O'Shaughnessy | Business Support Lead, Global Technology & Operations, Dublin, Ireland
When we have employees who mirror the diversity and experiences of our clients and communities, we’re better positioned to deliver results and grow responsibly. This means we actively pursue individuals inside and outside of our industry, and place a premium on knowledge in different areas and diverse experience.
“We have people from all over the world with different backgrounds — from the best universities in the world, to the smallest liberal arts schools no one has ever heard of. That’s what makes this place unique, that you can come from different corners of the world, with a different life perspective, and you are valued for your unique point of view.” — Quirico E. Perez III | Latin America Investment Banker, Global Banking & Markets, New York, N.Y.
Our business focuses on managing risk, solving complex problems for our clients and helping make financial lives better. Our clients place their trust in us, and we take this responsibility seriously.
We are committed to maintaining a diverse workplace and an inclusive culture so that employees can bring their whole selves to work every day.
“Diversity and inclusion is all about how to create the right work environment so that we can be our whole selves in the office. We need to constantly work towards bringing diverse thought and opinion to the table.” — Ruairi Young | Director, Chief Financial Officer Group, Chester, United Kingdom
We are always on the lookout for tomorrow’s leaders and offer leadership development programmes to help employees grow and achieve their individual career goals.
“Look for opportunity, get out of your comfort zone, be inquisitive and ask questions.” — Jennifer C. Williams | Operational Excellence Executive, Consumer & Small Business, Seattle, Wash.
