The Company


They are a boutique executive search firm, founded in 1997, with offices in New York, London and Hong Kong. The firm's consultants leverage expertise in financial services, digital technologies, and data science to serve a global client base.


Driven by their commitment to develop their own talent, and growth trajectory, they are looking for Associates to join their London office.


The Role


They are an Executive Search firm; therefore, the role is a research-based not sales-based position. They're looking for graduates with exceptional attention to detail, drive, intelligence and patience - this is not a position where you make lots of phone calls to make money as quickly as possible - it's a process.


As a researcher you will not be confined to just the researcher phase of search, from the get go you will have hands on training and opportunities for accelerated progression, working alongside the team who are subject matter experts in their fields.


Educated - a top degree from a top tier Russel Group university, with a 2.1 or above in an academic search subject.


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


Persuasion - someone who can understand individual drivers to influence outcomes.


A demonstrable interest in business, and their clients.


Strong team player - the process that they take with each and every search is a team game, you have to be prepared to put in your 'all' in order for the team to succeed.


The Basics


Though they want people to work there because they want to be there, want to succeed, and want to enjoy themselves, the company recognise that people also need a fair package to make a career with them viable.


£30,000 basic salary, plus bonus


Unrivalled exposure and progression - they want you to progress from a researcher to a consultant and to stay in the business, therefore where worthy of a promotion - there will be one.
