Working directly for the COO in a small office, the hire will take on a role with a broad remit. In the simplest sense the hire will take full ownership over operations (most of which is outsourced, so responsibilities are more focused on ‘policing’ and analysing what is being produced externally) + trader assistant responsibilities. However, the remit will extend to shadowing the COO on finance and compliance tasks - you will receive high level internal training. Furthermore, the firm are keen to have adequate cover for the Head Trader when he is away, so the hire will also be cross trained to take on trade execution responsibilities.
We are looking for a bright, ambitious junior to step up in to the role. You must thrive off being put in a position of great responsibility and autonomy. Whilst 1-4yrs hedge fund operations experience is preferred, we are very keen to see London based or ‘on-shored’ top tier IB trade support candidates. It is imperative to possess strong excel skills.
The role will pay a 40-50k base salary and comfortably a 25-50% bonus, with upside potential for a star performer. Staff receive free breakfast and lunch every day, mobile phone, gym membership and 10% pension. There is also a monthly office night out organised/funded by the CIO. Their office is usually cleared out by 6-630pm every day - work life balance is very important to the partners of the firm.
