Description:

AlphaSights’ Experienced Associate Program (formerly known as Experienced Analysts) is aimed at graduates with 1-3 years' experience gained in a different field who are now seeking to enter the business world. Whether you spent some years with Teach For America, went down the non-profit route, or spent time in the military - as long as you can clearly articulate your decision to switch into a fast-paced commercial environment, we’d love to hear from you. 

AlphaSights is a global leader in knowledge search. Founded in 2008, we have established ourselves as a go-to knowledge partner for decision-makers across private equity, asset management, consultancy and corporate strategy, helping them access the highly specific industry expertise they need to make better decisions, faster. AlphaSights is growing fast and, with three new offices opened in the last year alone, offers unrivalled impact opportunity and career progression. 

As a member of our client service team, you will be acting as the intermediary between our clients on one side, and targeted industry experts on the other. Your role is to focus on our clients' knowledge gaps and define the specialist knowledge required to address them. You then research companies and industries in order to identify and engage leading subject-matter specialists, using sound judgment to qualify their expertise based on the project in question, and connect them with our clients in real time. Although there is no typical day, there are often many projects running concurrently and our teams have to learn the most efficient way of identifying expertise quickly. 

Once you excel at the core delivery requirements of the client service role, you will take on additional responsibilities, including overall project management, client relationship management, and coaching of junior colleagues. Experienced Associates receive intensive on-and-off-the-desk training along the core dimensions it takes to become a self-sufficient commercial leader, including account management, business development, negotiation, leadership, recruitment, and talent development. 

Qualifications:

This is a position for someone with high emotional intelligence who enjoys connecting with people, is an exemplar of professionalism, and is highly motivated by exceeding targets. Our most successful people embrace a "whatever-it-takes" mantra and relish the opportunity to roll up their sleeves to achieve their goals. 

1-3 years work experience, typically gained in a non-business environment 
A deep-seated conviction that you now want to embark on a career in business 
Strong academic credentials, including a minimum GPA of 3.0, and noteworthy extracurricular leadership 
Fluency in English is essential. Fluency in a relevant foreign language is a plus
