The Company


My client is a global leader in knowledge search. With offices in London, New York, San Francisco, Dubai, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Seoul, it's a truly an international organisation. Founded in 2008, they have established themselves as a go-to knowledge partner for decision-makers across private equity, asset management, consultancy and corporate strategy, helping them access the highly specific industry expertise they need to make better decisions, faster. My client are growing fast and, with three new offices opened in the last year alone, offers unrivalled impact opportunity and career progression.


The Role


As a member of the client service team, you will be acting as the intermediary between clients on one side, and targeted industry experts on the other. Your role is to focus on the clients' knowledge gaps and define the specialist knowledge required to address them. You then research companies and industries in order to identify and engage leading subject-matter specialists, using sound judgment to qualify their expertise based on the project in question, and connect them with the clients in real-time. Although there is no typical day, there are often many projects running concurrently and the teams have to learn the most efficient way of identifying expertise quickly.


Once you excel at the core delivery requirements of the client service role, you will take on additional responsibilities, including overall project management, client relationship management, and coaching of junior colleagues. You will receive intensive on-and-off-the-desk training along the core dimensions it takes to become a self-sufficient commercial leader, including account management, business development, negotiation, leadership and talent development.


Your Career

You should expect to develop into a confident, autonomous business principal who can win business, inspire others and marshal resources in a fast-changing environment.
