A multi billion dollar AUM hedge fund are looking to make a newly created hire for one of its new fund launches.
Sitting on the trading desk, the hire will have sole responsibility of BAU operations for the recent fund launch. As a result, the hire will work very closely to a bank of leading industry traders + the hire will also have an opportunity to hire a junior later this year to assist him/her. It is a unique opportunity to have a start-up type set up, albeit within a leading global buy-side firm and thus complete job security. Project work can form an important part of the role as the hire assists with the build out of the desk.
Candidates should have excellent academic profiles. We are flexible on level of experience, for example it would be great to hire a 5-10yr hedge fund operations professional, but if an exceptional 2-5yr person is strong & confident enough to step up then we are equally as happy to hire that individual. We are also happy to consider investment banking candidates. Anybody with a programming skillset would be at an advantage, but it is not a necessity.
Given flexibility on experience, a broad base salary range of 50-80/85k can be possible. Given that the firm run a success / bonus driven culture, a top performer will earn a six figure total compensation package post-bonus.
