A market leading, multi-billion dollar AUM hedge fund are looking to hire a newly created, junior level ‘credit trader’ hire – this is a unique opportunity for an individual to make his/her first move into a trading position.

The fund are multi strategy – the European Head Trader currently runs three books and is looking to offload his ownership of credit trading. The new hire will therefore shadow the Head trader / initially sharing responsibilities with him for credit trading, before taking on full trading responsibility for the European credit strategy within 1-2yrs. The opportunity for a current operations professional to become the European head credit trader for a multi-billion dollar AUM, global hedge fund, is potentially a once in a lifetime progression path!

We are looking for a current operations analyst / MO analyst / trader assistant with 1-5yrs experience. Candidates must have a specialism in credit markets / instruments. Top tier, STEM academics are also a pre-requisite. Please only apply if you meet these three criteria.

Whilst this is a junior role, it is budgeted to pay a £100-150k year one total comp package, with the variable dependant on individual performance.
