Head of Operations – Expanding Hedge Fund – COO progression

Location: London   Sectors Operations  

A boutique hedge fund, with a rapidly expanding AUM + market leading performance (and many industry awards over the past 3 years), are looking to hire a Head of Operations.

The hire will manage a team of two operations analysts, in a role that has a focus on management, infrastructure build out, supplier/service provider management and hands on work (the function cover operations, middle office/fund accounting and treasury tasks). The current COO (from an investment background) will look to transition in to a CEO role in 12-18months, making this a unique opportunity for a current hedge fund operations manager who is finding it impossible to secure a COO role at his/her current firm.

We are looking for an existing hedge fund (essential) operations manager/head of operations. You must be comfortable performing hands on operations work daily. You should have a solid academic record.

The role has flexibility on base for the correct hire, although we envisage that the correct level of person will currently be earning 75-100k base and be ready to step up. The hire can expect a 100% bonus if they perform to an exceptional level. You will have the opportunity to gain equity in the firm if successfully stepping up in to the COO role further down the line.
