The Company


Our client is the home of independent business consultants - connecting private equity funds, strategy consultancies and corporations with the most talented and successful consultants. Their network helps companies solve complex business problems and provides critical business support on a global scale. They are the only business that offers on-demand resourcing with worldwide coverage which can be evidenced through their network of over 40,000 consultants. With the touch of a button, 400 global companies now have access to the exact profile that they need for their business - their technology and data matching is revolutionising the way businesses are run. They are backed by several major Venture Capital funds which have led to their superb growth and strong foundations.



As the company grows, they are looking to expand their private equity sales team. A huge part of what our client does is focusing on supporting top tier Private Equity funds with senior consultants who can drive initiatives for value creation in their portfolio companies.



The Role


As a sales associate, you will be responsible for bridging the gap between world-class consultants and our platform - bringing them on board and getting them to become a part of our network. As you progress, the role will develop into a full 360 position with the combination of research, sales, and client attainment and management; this role is only suitable for and open to, the very highest calibre of graduates. They are experts in what they do and - since they are a very career-minded organisation - they only hire graduates who have the tenacity, curiosity, intellectual capacity and drive to become experts, too. There are certain requirements that they use to shortlist candidates for this role, including (but not limited to):



Educated - a top degree from a reputable university is indicative of hard work and intelligence, so they look for graduates with a degree from a Russell Group university, with a 2.1 or above in an academic subject.


Communication - they require excellent verbal and written communication skills. Someone who is able to build rapport quickly and maintain strong client relationships.


Mature - you will be dealing with executives of large companies and so it is essential to have the maturity to liaise with them in a sophisticated manner.


Agile - due to the company's success, they are continuously expanding and looking for people who can develop and grow with them.


Hard working - ambitious, with a desire to succeed in a commercial environment


Team player - someone who is looking to contribute across the wider business


Inquisitive - someone who wants to improve and undertake additional responsibilities


Multilingual/bilingual preferred - as we are a global company, the ability to communicate with different cultures is essential.
