  • Job Description

    Already you’re recognized as the one to watch. Now you’re ready to step up the game in the wealth arena — and to shine like the self-starter you are. Join a creative organization where you’ll connect with some of the most entrepreneurial, spirited, energetic people you’ll ever meet.

    We’re looking for a Sales Consultant with a solid background in investments to play a key role with the Great-West Life Product Solutions Centre team Edmonton. 

    In this fast-paced and results-oriented environment, you will be one of our local investment authorities, transferring knowledge and providing case consultation. Focusing in the mid-high market, you’ll work with advisors in our Freedom 55 Financial distribution channels-- some of the finest in the business.

    To start:

    • Your background includes at least 3-5 years in the financial services industry. You’re dedicated and not afraid to step outside your comfort zone and try something new and educational. You hold or are working towards valid financial services designations such as CFP, Ch.F.C and/or CLU, RHU, CHS.
    • You really care about relationships and your book of business. As a specialist for investment product knowledge, tools, sales concepts and general tax planning principles related to investment solutions, you’re excited to bring forward a sales concept to your advisorsand help ensure the idea resonates with their clients. Your advisors appreciate your advice to help them meet their goals. When they succeed, you succeed and you live by that credo.
    • You believe in cross-pollination and sharing ideas, not just with your proprietary team of advisors, but with your peers in other regions as well. Change and evolution keep you engaged and fulfilled.

    In this position it’s about personal and professional growth and results, and that’s what drives you. Speaking of which, you’ll welcome opportunities to build your business. That’s why you’re often on the road to expand your footprint.

    You thrive because you get personal satisfaction that comes from helping others succeed — your mentoring nature is part of your DNA, and you appreciate the key role you play in helping Canadians reach their goals and dreams.  

    If believe you’ve got what it takes, and want to make a difference, we want to hear from you.
