About Jupiter

Jupiter is one of the UK's leading investment management companies with over 500 employees and £52.6 billion worth of assets under management (as at 29th March 2024).

Jupiter provides investment services to individual and institutional investors through mutual funds (UK unit trusts, Luxembourg SICAVs and Dublin OEICs), separately managed accounts and sub-advised funds. Jupiter has experienced a period of international growth with offices open across EMEA and APAC.

The majority of our employees are based in our London office located just minutes from Victoria station which provides stair-free access from both the Underground's Victoria line and National Rail platforms, as well as limited road crossings to the Jupiter office. Our London office was designed to encourage employees to live active, healthy lives with floor-to-ceiling windows that allow for greater natural light and the benefit of a private balcony, table tennis room, cycle storage and on-site shower and locker facilities. The short distance to Green Park and St James' Park also provides employees with a natural space to relax during their lunch break and a healthy alternative to office-based meetings.

We offer our UK employees a 3:2 hybrid working arrangement where Tuesdays, Thursdays and a third day of your choice are worked from the office. The other two days may be worked from home. This facilitates collaboration and allows employees to maximise productivity whilst maintaining a healthy work/life balance.

Background

  • Own the full range of marketing collateral to ensure client messages are impactful and relevant across different segments of our client base
  • Produce topical thought pieces on specific market and product trends
  • Interact with Legal, Risk, Compliance, Operations and IT to facilitate smooth infrastructure around the product where this has a bearing on product definition and client communications
Desired Skills / Experience
