Public Sector Roles in New York
New York City has a number of public sector organisations with roles for financial professionals and although pay is somewhat lower than the private sector financial services industry, it is still respectable with public sector financial professionals earning an average of $66,000. The state and city public employees’ pension funds are based out of New York City, while the city and state treasury are both regular and sizeable borrowers on bond markets. There are even jobs for experienced financial professionals at the SEC, the New York Federal Reserve and the New York State Department of Financial Services.
Compared to private sector banks, Public Sector employers in New York tend to give more emphasis to work-life balance and to run less pressurised working environments. However, they require the highest standards of behaviour and compliance. Employees with a mastery of detail, a consistent approach and the ability to see the bigger picture tend to succeed the best in public sector posts. Many of the top jobs are either political appointments or elected officials, and it is important for public sector finance professionals to be sensitive to the implications and constraints caused by this.
