A large, expanding global multi-strategy hedge fund are looking to make a new hire to support an upcoming commodities fund launch.
The remit of the role will see the hire fully trained up to take ownership of the new fund launch, from an operations/middle office perspective. The nature of the business means that in addition to reporting in to a member of senior management, you will directly support / face off to leading commodity investment professionals + you will manage a key remit for the firm and you will face off to numerous external stakeholders/suppliers.
We are specifically looking for candidates currently working at commodity trading firms, in operations / trade support roles, that are looking to make a buy-side move. We can be flexible on level of experience, but candidates with 3-5yrs and looking for a step up are potentially most relevant. An excellent academic profile is required, as are advanced excel skills (VBA preferred). Strong relationship management / client services skills are required.
The role will most likely cap at a 60k base salary. The firm promote a strong bonus culture where a star performer will realise a large % of base salary as a bonus (50%+ is achievable year one for an outstanding performer).
