The role may also include opportunities to contribute to the team in other capacities as interests and team needs align.

Your impact:

Our team works in partnership with Chatham’s advisory teams and clients to help them efficiently navigate the operational and regulatory compliance aspects of a transaction. We strive to continually improve the workflows we are responsible for and have the chance to do so by implementing process changes and/or leveraging supporting technology. Team members play a crucial role in these process improvements and serve as subject matter experts, providing regular training and resources for all Chatham teams. 

Contributors to your success:

  • 2 years of experience working in operations or contract review may be beneficial but is not required
  • An interest in operational process management and improvement
  • High level of attention to detail, accuracy, and organization
  • Ability to multitask and independently prioritize workload
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills

We seek individuals that will thrive in our culture and can make a significant impact over the long term.  Most of our team members do not come to Chatham with a deep understanding of derivatives; therefore, we conduct classroom and apprentice-style training.  We look for people who have consistently demonstrated drive, determination, and academic/professional accomplishment throughout their lives.  We invest a great deal of time and training with our employees and we are looking for individuals who want to make a long-term commitment to the company.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
