Charles Schwab plans to fill hundreds of positions, including in financial planning and services and client relationships, according to news reports.

The firm’s job board shows 1,040 job openings, which includes 18 financial planning positions for TD Ameritrade, acquired by Schwab in 2020, FA-IQ sister publication Ignites writes.

Schwab is also looking to fill positions in client services, investment management, project management, risk, sales, product, legal and compliance and human resources, according to the publication.

Close to half of all the positions, meanwhile, are in technology-related areas such as data analytics, solutions architecture and software development, the publication writes.

In December, Schwab disclosed that it was planning to hire for 700 technology positions around the U.S. to support a big increase in client activity, as reported.

Last summer, the firm announced plans to hire around 1,450 people in Dallas-Fort Worth as well as Austin, Texas. Schwab moved its headquarters last January from San Francisco to Westlake, Texas, a suburb of Fort Worth.

Following its acquisition of TD Ameritrade, Schwab eliminated more than 1,200 positions through several rounds of layoffs.

The company had 33,400 employees as of the end of 2021, up from 32,000 a year earlier, Ignites writes, citing the firm's fourth quarter earnings report.

A Schwab spokesperson said the firm hired more than 300 financial consultants and more than 2,800 service employees in 2021, according to the publication.
