A market leading Hedge Fund are looking to make a newly created hire in to its expanding London office.

The fund have a multi-billion dollar AUM, continue to grow and recently hired a new Portfolio Manager who is known throughout the industry. In response to the hire, the firm feel it necessary to hire a Trader Assistant that will be a dedicated resource to the new desk (PM + Analysts + Trader). There is a separate operations/middle office team and so the role offers a core front office / markets focused TA remit. Whilst commitment to the role is required, it can be possible to progress in to other roles on the desk moving forwards (Trader, Junior Portfolio Manager, Research Analyst, Risk Manager etc.).

We are looking to hire a candidate with solid experience in either an IB or Hedge Fund Trader Assistant/Middle Office role. We would be happy to consider a junior with 3yrs experience looking for a huge step up, in the same way we would consider a 10yr experienced TA looking for a new challenge. The key is to have a huge appetite to succeed and a real passion for financial markets. We could potentially look at an exceptional Hedge Fund Operations Analyst looking for the next step towards front office. You must have a strong grasp of derivatives. You will have an excellent academic record and communication skills, personality and character that fit a front office environment.

The role has flexibility on base salary in order to offer the right candidate an attractive pay increase. As bonus expectations are 50-100%, a top performer will comfortably earn a 100k+ GBP total compensation package.
