Operations Manager/Project Manager – Expanding Asset Manager – 60-80k base + large bonus potential
Location: London, England, United Kingdom
A unique opportunity has presented itself to a hedge fund operations professional to move in to a hybrid Operations/Project Manager position within a rapidly expanding asset management firm.
The business has achieved exponential success over recent years and continues to diversify its offerings with numerous fund launches. Heavily backed financially, the firm are to carry out a large build out of its non-investment function. We require the hire to come in as ‘Operations Manager’, but effectively work in a hybrid line management and Business Analyst capacity. For line management, you will oversee a small team of operations analyst’s that cover ‘new business’, with an expectation that you will also lead the build out of that team over time. The BA element to the role is key as vast improvements to the existing infrastructure are required and so alongside a team of tech professionals this hire will lead that build out, both functionally and strategically. We see this as the perfect opportunity for an operations manager to have a new focus and challenge, moving away from a pure line role.
The hire should currently be a Hedge Fund Operations Manager, however we could consider an exceptional senior operations analyst to step up (assuming that you have some form of supervisory experience). You should have additional technical skills, such as VBA, SQL or another programming language – we expect that the hire can ‘talk the language’ of the tech team rather than be a hardcore programmer themselves.
The role will offer a base salary likely to cap out at 80k. A strong bonus potential is offered in the role and so a top performer can comfortably earn a 120-150k total comp package.
