DTCC, a financial services company that moved from New York to Tampa following 9/11, is looking to fill at least 15 jobs in finance and technology.
The Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation (DTCC) processes securities transactions, including mutual funds and insurance transactions.
"DTCC was established in Tampa about six years after the 9/11 attacks in New York," says Rich Marulanda of the DTCC. "At that time there were federal requirements moving us to duplicate operations at a different site for the purposes of business continuity."
Tampa office, otherwise known as the South Business Center (SBC), recently won the Florida Governor's Sterling Award for the advanced work related to business continuity. The award recognizes organizations that demonstrate managerial and operational excellence.
"As an organization we are constantly looking at our processes, including leadership strategy, process and data management," says Eric Miller, DTCC managing director and head of SBC. "We have evolved into a culture of quality, performance and metrics."
DTCC's SBC currently has more than 15 openings.
"At any given time we have 10-20 openings at our Tampa facility," says Marulanda. "We are currently looking for individuals who are highly talented in the areas of finance and technology."
One of the pillars of excellence that DTCC promotes is diversity. "We have a diversity inclusion council," says Miller. "We are constantly looking at initiatives, which promote and celebrate diversity."
One of those initiatives includes generational diversity. "We have a group for young professionals, which has a reverse mentoring program," says Marulanda. "In the reverse mentoring program we have our younger professionals train our executives on the use of social media in the workplace."
