Job description

What does the ideal role look like for you? Autonomy, high personal impact, and an introduction to the world of business without pigeonholing yourself into any one industry? A clear path towards leading your own team and managing blue-chip client relationships in two years’ time? Running your own multimillion-dollar book of business in five years? If this resonates with you, read on.

We’re a global team of ambitious, mission-driven professionals committed to accelerating progress for our clients and for our people alike. From the moment you join us as an Associate early in your career, you’ll have significant autonomy and responsibility. You’ll get intense training and countless professional development opportunities to help you excel in your role. And you’ll have opportunities to work and spend time with like-minded colleagues from across the globe right from the get-go.

Through hard work, drive, emotional intelligence, and a commitment to delivering results, you’ll be on the path to becoming manager in two years and vice president in five, all while being part of a global team that’s dedicated to building a business, improving themselves, supporting one another, and celebrating successes together.

The role
As an Associate on our client service team, you’ll act as the connection point between our clients and industry experts. Your role is to focus on clients’ knowledge gaps and identify specialists with the knowledge that can address them. Thinking quickly and critically, you’ll conduct surface-level research on companies and industries to identify the precise experts around the globe who can answer our clients’ questions. You’ll spend considerable time reaching out by phone to experts to assess whether their expertise is a relevant match to the client request you’re working on and you’ll connect qualified experts to our clients in real time. Working on several client requests at the same time, you’ll need to learn effective prioritisation to efficiently identify and qualify highly relevant expertise.

This is a fast-paced, client facing, communication-intense role with a clear focus on effectiveness and revenue generation. Associates develop skills in negotiation, professional communication, project management, client service, conflict resolution, and training which pave their way to successful careers in commercial and operational leadership.

What will you get from us?

  • Clear career progression
  • Opportunities for training and development throughout
  • High level of autonomy and ownership of role from day-one
  • Comprehensive company sponsored private medical scheme
  • Subsidised canteen, free breakfast, Friday drinks, snacks and fruit throughout the day
  • Weekly morning yoga and corporate gym discounts

We are looking for graduates to join us in July and September 2019 and January 2020.

What we are looking for

We’re not concerned about what you’ve studied and you don’t need to have a specific type of experience to join us because we’ll teach you how to be successful in this role, but you should have an interest in working in a client-facing, business-oriented capacity. You’ll need to bring a client-first attitude and be results-oriented, driven, and emotionally intelligent. You’ll need to embrace our entrepreneurial, fast-changing, and highly collaborative environment and demonstrate strong interpersonal and leadership skills.

  • 0-three years work experience
  • Noteworthy extracurricular leadership
  • Evidenced success in a professional and/or extracurricular field
  • Whilst we are looking for English speakers, we are also looking for Italian, German and Nordic language speakers in particular
