A rapidly expanding hedge fund are looking to make a 6 month contractor hire in to its non-investment function.
Reporting directly in to the COO, the hire will work in a hands-on role with responsibilities covering operations, trader assistant, treasury and fund accounting tasks. The firm are going through a major build out/expansion (as they look to create internal capacity for $1bn AUM), so the contractor will also be integral in major project initiatives. This could be a perfect move for an operations professional, immediately available, looking to boost their skill set and CV with a combination of hands-on + project work, in order to apply for operations manager/head of operations roles elsewhere in 2020. That said, the firm will be hiring a permanent ‘operations manager’ resource in Q1 2020, with this contractor hire being first in line should they impress & wish to remain at the company.
We are ideally looking for a hedge fund operations professional with 5-10yrs experience. That said, it is possible to look either side of this level (as we appreciate that the ‘immediately available market’ is light at this time). The hire must be available to start a new role August 1st.
We will not currently commit to a daily rate or pro-rata base salary, as there is flexibility & no candidate should feel discounted at this time.
