We are currently working with several Macro funds who have varying opportunities within their middle office teams. As such, we are keen to hear from candidates with relevant experience to then match to the roles we are currently working on. The businesses range from multi-million dollar to multi-billion dollar hedge funds; boutique and mid-sized.
Areas of particular interest:
- OTC Specialists – Cleared and Bilateral; IRS, Swaptions, FRAs, etc. Have to have the confidence and technical knowledge to work with the execution desk from an operational perspective. Prior or existing use of Markitwire is highly desirable. US hours (12pm – 9pm) on a shift pattern once or twice a week.
- Confirmations – Knowledge of paper confirmations process along with generic operations experience is desired. You will be working with various other business lines to include legal, compliance and trading.
- Reconciliations – Ideally candidates with 1 to 2 years recs experience in the buy-side. This role will have a broader remit as time goes on but the desire to carry out recs duties are paramount.
- Trading Assistant - The ideal candidate will come from a fixed income/rates background in operations/middle office. VBA and SQL skills are highly desired but not essential. This role is being relocated from NYC to London hence, there will be a degree of US hours coverage (12pm to 9pm). This hire will be expected to work on a shift pattern but if you're happy to do US hours only then that'll be a huge plus and will put you ahead of others.
For all of these roles, buy-side experience is preferred however, candidates with sell-side experience will also be considered.
