Ennismore Fund Management is a boutique fund management business, specialising in European smaller companies, with an excellent track record since launch in 1999. We are looking for an additional member to join our operations team.

Fund Accountant/Dealer

This role is within the 5-person operations team that supports the firm’s investment management team providing all aspects of back and middle office services.

The opportunity is open to experienced fund accountants who can demonstrate experience in support of the asset classes used by the firm and the full spectrum of operational tasks involved in the management of the firm’s portfolios. Additionally, the role includes a requirement for the successful candidate to operate as a dealer in the execution of securities market transactions. The dealing role is as back-up to our in house dealer for absence cover, and so is ancillary in nature to the main role of general fund support, although this means operating in this role is limited as a proportion of the role’s time, this function is of key importance to the firm and will form a significant part of the training and competency for this role.

The successful candidate will be able to show active experience of Fund Operations and either prior experience of securities trading or directly-related experience of this role. Experience in programming languages will be viewed favorably also.
