I am loosely looking at jobs at the moment and considering a move. I saw a good match with JP Morgan at their Canary Wharf Office – although I am worried it may be too corporate for me.
Anyway, the job title is “Vice President”.
I know from research this basically means “Manager”. Unsure of salary but most sites seem to suggest £90k-100k.
It’s a ridiculous job title really. I’ve heard the phrase “job title inflation” which this definitely is. Apparently some say it’s due to wanting to give clients and investors the impression that they’re dealing with a more important person rather than just “manager”.
**Has anyone else noticed this with some companies?**
**Finally, some other jobs with JP Morgan are called “XYZ Lead” – is this more/less senior or impossible to say?**
