Junior Associate - Client Service Team (Industrial 12 month placement)
What does the ideal role look like for you? Autonomy, high personal impact, and an introduction to the world of business without pigeonholing yourself into any one industry? A clear path towards leading your own team and managing blue-chip client relationships in two years’ time? Running your own multimillion-dollar book of business in five years? If this resonates with you, read on.


We’re a global team of ambitious, mission-driven professionals committed to accelerating progress for our clients and for our people alike. From the moment you join us as a Junior Associate early in your career, you’ll have significant autonomy and responsibility. You’ll get intense training and countless professional development opportunities to help you excel in your role. And you’ll have opportunities to work and spend time with like-minded colleagues from across the globe right from the get-go.


About AlphaSights
Leading professionals around the world often find themselves in situations where they don’t have the knowledge they need to confidently make decisions and move forward. That’s when they turn to AlphaSights. Our people bring commercial instincts, business acumen, and a whatever-it-takes mentality to every project to truly understand our clients’ unique questions and identify the precise experts who can offer valuable insights. With a better understanding of the world than they had before engaging AlphaSights, our clients accelerate their progress. They harness newfound insights and knowledge to think faster and smarter than the competition, generate ideas, and make extraordinary breakthroughs to drive the business forward.


Founded in 2008, AlphaSights currently employs around 500 professionals in eight offices around the globe and regularly ranks as one of the fastest-growing companies in the world.


The Role
As a Junior Associate on our client service team, you’ll act as the connection point between our clients and industry experts. Your role is to focus on clients’ knowledge gaps and identify specialists with the knowledge that can address them. Thinking quickly and critically, you’ll conduct surface-level research on companies and industries to identify the precise experts around the globe who can answer our clients’ questions. You’ll spend considerable time reaching out by phone to experts to assess whether their expertise is a relevant match to the client request you’re working on and you’ll connect qualified experts to our clients in real time. Working on several client requests at the same time, you’ll need to learn effective prioritization to efficiently identify and qualify highly relevant expertise.


This is a fast-paced, communication-intense role with a clear focus on effectiveness and revenue generation. Junior Associates develop skills in negotiation, professional communication, project management and commercial execution which pave their way to successful careers in commercial and operational leadership.


What We Look For
We’re not concerned about what you’ve studied and you don’t need to have a specific type of experience to join us because we’ll teach you how to be successful in this role, but you should have an interest in working in a client-facing, business-oriented capacity. You’ll need to bring a client-first attitude and be results-oriented, driven, and emotionally intelligent. You’ll need to embrace our entrepreneurial, fast-changing, and highly collaborative environment and demonstrate strong interpersonal and leadership skills.
