Previous Experience

We are looking for a graduate who has had some experience in the financial services industry either working for Life and Pensions Provider, Asset Manager, Online investment platform or IFA firm.
The role is very varied and will involve a variety of different responsibilities from:

  • organising and coordinating events, in particular maintaining invitee lists and follow up pre- and post-event.
  • picking up work from the research team.
  • getting involved with bespoke research pieces.

Why apply?

This is a great opportunity for someone looking to take the next step up – and to get out from behind a desk and to be a bigger part of a smaller team. To move into a role that requires you to work with a high degree of proactivity and independence.

As part of a small team, the successful applicant will gain industry exposure. Being immersed in the world of financial services, you will become expert in identifying industry challenges and trends and have the opportunity to attend meetings with senior industry staff meeting a range of companies from Life & Pensions companies to asset managers to large IFA distribution companies.
