The Company

We are a high-growth financial services business headquartered in gorgeous offices by the Thames in the City of London. We're a start-up with a global presence. Since our inception in 1996 we have grown to over 100 team members - but that's only the beginning; we work in a market valued at £4b and our plan is to become the market leader.

We have offices in the UK, continental Europe and the United States, and due to our success we are looking to expand in all of these locations. Our vision is to grow our firm from the bottom up - we hire talented graduates and place a huge emphasis on training and development, as well as offering unrivalled career progression.

The Opportunity

To fuel our growth, we are looking to hire five graduate Technical Consultants. This is the first step on the ladder that leads to Consultant, Partner and beyond. This is a consultative finance role and it isn't easy but it is worth it. From day one, you'll have exposure to, and contact with, high-profile clients across banking, pharma, aerospace, science, engineering and manufacturing.

We ensure the social dynamic reflects the friendly yet hard-working office environment. We expect the best of our employees and in return, our graduates will earn an average of £35k in their first year. Our teams are regularly rewarded with incentives (e.g. iPads, city breaks, spa days, nights out etc.) in addition to an achievable uncapped bonus structure.

We offer real career opportunities in a fast-growing, friendly firm with an energetic and ambitious team. Our remuneration package is attractive and you will be rewarded on the basis of your personal performance, as well as on the basis of the firm's overall achievements. For the right candidate, the extensive growth plans for the UK offer the opportunity to progress extremely.

We are looking for resourceful, bright and confident candidates with the following:

  • Degree (preferably a masters) at grade 2:1/merit or above in a science, technology or finance related subject - we work in a complex area of financial services and so hiring candidates with the intellectual ability to deal with our markets is essential
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills - our clients are high-end, high-profile businesses who expect the best
  • The ability to tailor your style to suit a particular opportunity - in other words, being adaptable and socially intelligent is a must

Main Responsibilities will include:

  • Qualifying client's businesses and their eligibility to proceed in an R&D application process.
  • Liaising with client's technical departments to gain relevant information.
  • Writing detailed reports on application processes.
  • Managing of portfolio of 600-800 innovative businesses;
  • Opportunity to approach new sectors on behalf of the firm.

Package

We appreciate that to get the best talent we have to offer an excellent package and fantastic long-term opportunities. This is why we offer an average first-year earnings of £35,000 and a market-leading £25k base. The first promotion is typically attained within 6 months and we regularly promote from within beyond that.

In addition, we offer excellent benefits following a successful probationary period such as private healthcare, matched pension and overseas end of year retreats.
