  • Produce commentary and reports to tell the story behind models
  • Business partner the investment team as well as IR as their "go to" analytics person and seeking to add value where possible
  • Likelihood of being involved in lots of ad hoc project work related to modelling and/or data analytics

Your background:

  • Degree educated (or equivalent) with ideally formal qualifications, ie: ACA or CFA
  • At least 5 years or equivalent experience in an analytical/quantitative role, preferably in private equity or buy side or alternatively from a large accounting firm
  • Exceptional Excel skills and comfortable building financial models (ie: macros, VBA)
  • Excellent communication skills; adept at writing analysis and commentary for senior stakeholders
  • Happy and comfortable in a reasonably autonomous role that would work across finance and front office and require you to be proactive and inquisitive
