Wealthy bank but no headcount

March 8th, 2024, 5:51 pm

I am a quant contractor who was told that my contract will not be renewed at the end of this month
although my performance has been excellent.
The reasons are budgetary -- the bank has cut a lot of contractor positions even though the bank
made enormous profits.
However, I see some essential quant tasks that need to be done and are not being done, and that I am easily capable of doing.
I could give more details by PM.
Would there be any possibility of finding out who controls the purse strings and appealing to them
directly for funding, based on my ability to do the needed work?
Could such an approach be possible in a large bank?
Grateful for any advice.

Thank You.
