A multi-billion dollar AUM New York headquartered Hedge Fund - viewed as a highly prestigious, leading firm within their space in the US, are looking to make a newly created marketing hire in to its small, but expanding European (London) office.
The European office currently consists of marketing and investment professionals only. Within sales/marketing, there are 3 senior sales professionals/fundraisers + a head of investor relations. The hire will work as #2 in IR. You will directly support the fundraisers, managing all DDQ requests, data queries, marketing presentations etc. You will also take ownership over an existing book of clients. This is an exciting time to join, as the firm have plans to expand its European footprint further, so progression opportunities within sales/marketing can be accelerated.
We are preferably looking for a buy-side Investor Relations/marketing support professional, ideally with 2-5yrs relevant experience to step in to role. That said, we are open to candidates looking to move in to IR/sales, assuming they currently work for a top tier IB/hedge fund in a support role, clearly possessing the correct personality and character for a longer-term career in sales.
The role will pay a 50-70k base salary, depending on level of experience. A 50-100% bonus potential is possible for a top performer. We feel that the benefits package is in the upper quartile of what the London hedge fund market typically offers.
Whilst we would happily make an immediate hire, realistically top candidates will be waiting on Q4/Q1 bonuses – we are happy to make the hire now, but allow candidates to resign post-bonus.
