Careers at Nottingham

While a specific background in our core areas – fund and portfolio accounting, transfer agency and shareholder services; securities industry compliance – might constitute an ideal background, that is not always an opportunity in eastern North Carolina. Some of the best members of our team had a core native intelligence, good communication skills, a personable demeanor and an intense intellectual curiosity. Those character traits cannot be taught. Industry specific skills can be taught.

We also have been quite fortunate to bring in experienced industry individuals who wanted to move to a better climate and quality of life, and some who moved to North Carolina to be with family. Or both.

If you think your background, skills, and temperament might be a match, send us your resume. Nottingham is an equal-opportunity employer, and we are very proud of our benefits program and working environment.
