Junior Sales Associate x2

M&G Investments

We are not your average financial services firm and our unique culture is just one aspect that makes us stand out from the crowd. We offer a supportive environment that encourages innovation and creativity whilst maintaining a healthy lifestyle balance. You will be joining one of Europe's leading Investment Management firms where you can expect real responsibility and recognition from day one. We are large enough to offer a wide variety of career opportunities, whilst small enough to treat you as an individual and tailor training and development to your specific needs.

Purpose

The sales support team is a source of information and support to a number of areas within the Fixed Income business and wider Institutional business group and works closely on joint projects with other business and service areas. The team produce over 800 presentations a year for client and consultant meetings, and business development meetings.

The key relationships for this role are with the sales and marketing teams in the UK as well as with product specialists and fund managers - all based in London. This role will be dedicated to the support of our team of UK sales directors - by far the largest remit we manage.

Key Responsibilities

In this role you will help to create sales pitch presentations and client management updates and answer queries from external consultants and clients when required.

You will be expected to learn about clients, intermediaries and competitors in all markets and ensure all opportunities are thoroughly understood. Use external databases to carry out competitor analysis.

You will work with other sales support to:

- maintain various sources of data including Staff information, AuM etc.
- complete ad hoc data requests and questionnaires
- help to update and maintain a variety of Fund documentation
- support both the sales and marketing teams with updating and monitoring the CRM system
- help the rest of the team with specific project work as and when required.

What we are looking for...

We are ideally looking for a Graduate who studied a non-finance related degree.

Experience in asset management is not essential. However, it is vital you have the ability to cope under pressure, are a fast learner, are numerate and literate, and have intellectual curiosity.

M&G is committed to a diverse and inclusive workplace. Our role as an employer is very simple - to provide the right environment for talented people to do their best work, by respecting, understanding and valuing individual differences.

We welcome applications from individuals who have taken an extended career break, and we are willing to consider flexible working arrangements for all of our roles.
