The operations team (2) is currently managed by the London CEO. We now require a European figure head to manage the team/function and be the main interface on all European operational issues. The hire will take on many facets of an operational role, most notably with the expectation to also perform a hands on line BAU remit alongside the two other team members. We do not plan to hire a European COO, so progression opportunities could be particularly fruitful.
We are ideally looking to hire a hedge fund senior operations analyst / junior operations manager to step in to the role. We could also look at an existing head of operations, but anybody seasoned would most likely be too far removed from BAU tasks / would be put off by the hands on aspect to the role.
It is crucial to secure the very best man/woman for the role - the role can therefore offer up to a 100k base salary, which should be very attractive for a junior stepping up. It is possible to wait for an individual’s bonus payment + three month notice to expire, however as that would most likely lead to a Q2 start then we would consider an immediate bonus buyout to ensure a Q1 starter.
