Middle Office – Hedge Fund – IB graduate scheme candidates preferred - 40-50k base / 50%+ bonus

Location: London   Sectors Operations  

A leading, multi-billion dollar AUM US hedge fund are looking to make a newly created hire in to its European middle office team.

Working in a small, specialist team, we are searching for a bright, highly analytical junior, that has a passion for financial markets. The team analyse numbers produced elsewhere, so you can expect to critically analyse large sets of data, providing analysis/commentary on the fund’s trade data/performance + it’s performance against the wider market & competitors, with reports going to (and sometimes presented to) senior management & front office. The hire will be trained (internally and also on external courses) in VBA, SQL and Python. Progression opportunities within the firm are varied – the role is available as the current incumbent is moving internally into a front office treasury position.

We are specifically looking to hire individuals that currently work on Investment Bank graduate schemes, in operations / middle office – you could currently be rolling off the scheme after 3yrs, or quite simply looking for a new challenge after 1yr. That said, we will not dismiss existing hedge fund juniors that are seeking a move to a leading firm. Regardless, you must have an exceptional (numerical) academic profile.

We feel that a 50k base salary cap is suitable to attract candidates at the required level. Year one, the hire can expect a 50% bonus for strong performance. Beyond year one, you can expect an even greater total comp potential - the individual moving on from this role has earned 50-100% bonuses each year that she’s been at the firm.
