Hello, We'd like to draw your attention to a new employment opportunity available with ERM Capital, Ltd: Client Account Specialist (CAS) /Senior Client Account Specialist (Senior CAS). This is a part-time position that you can fill while working at home, with a commission based remuneration dependent on your performance. In order to occupy this position, you need to be 21 years and above and have a verifiable residency in the USA. Previous business, clerical or administrative experience is a plus, as is college education. If you received this email in error or you no longer wish to receive any vacancy alerts, please email back with the following header: UNSUBSCRIBE. THE EMPLOYER Found in 2003 in Moscow, Russia, ERM Capital Ltd. specializes in trading managed accounts for individual and institutional investors and market-making in the Russian derivatives market. Underpinned by proprietary 'rocket science' quantitative models, our vast trading experience ensures consistent outperformance of your portfolio. The unique risk profile of our non-directional relative value strategies offers our clients a great opportunity to diversify a traditional long-only stock and bond portfolio. We also provide hedging and market risk consulting services to non-financial companies in Russia and Eastern Europe. The company offers its services to domestic individuals and companies, as well as eligible investors from around the world. Since we are chartered in Russia and only offer our services to qualified purchasers in the US, we are not eligible for regulation by the US Commodity Futures Trading Commission and/or Securities and Exchange Commission. We are fully licensed and supervised by the Russian Federal Financial Markets Service as a dealer and broker in the securities markets. Currently, we seek to increase our business presence in the USA in consideration of the decline in the US stock and bond markets and growing interest in the emerging markets, including Russia, demonstrated by the sophisticated investors. This strategy means that more contract-to-hire opportunities will arise for our staff in the USA. THE ROLE The core responsibility of a Client Account Specialist is to ensure timely settlement of incoming payments from our US clients. Your responsibilities will include receiving incoming funds notifications from the Client Accounts Supervisor, confirming the receipt of the funds into your designated bank account, transferring the funds into our managed client accounts in Russia and confirming the settlement with your bank, the client and our accounting, as requested. Your duties will typically require up to 8 hours per week. Since we currently do not have a physical office in the USA, all communication with your supervisor will be carried out by phone, email and fax, so you should have convenient access to these facilities. You should also be able to visit your bank in the regular business hours upon a few hours notice.
In order to succeed in this role, you should be a strong communicator with good multi-tasking 
skills and great attention to detail. Previous clerical, business or administrative experience is a 
plus, but not a prerequisite. ERM Capital Ltd. is an equal opportunities employer open to 
candidates of any sex, race, age or ethnicity.

Your remuneration is calculated as a percentage of the client funds that you handle and is 
available each time that you complete a transaction. There is thus no need to wait for the payroll
