British Patient Capital is the largest domestic investor in UK venture and venture growth capital funds with £2.5bn under management. BPC's long-term vision is for more home-grown and fully funded high growth companies to fulfil their potential to be players on the global stage. Recently BPC has launched its direct co-investment programme where it plans to invest £250m directly into companies by co-investing alongside its fund managers into the UK's most promising scaleups. It will also manage Future Fund: Breakthrough, a new £375m programme that will invest in late stage R&D intensive companies. The programme was announced in the Chancellor's Budget of 2021 and is due to launch in early summer. BPC is now looking to hire across all levels into these direct investment teams.
This role is for a Senior Manager
focused on either Deeptech or Life Sciences investments within the Future Fund: Breakthrough programme. We are looking to recruit a Senior manager to lead deals from start to finish, providing day-to-day transaction leadership on the following activities:
- Financial and investment analysis
- Due diligence
- Negotiation of legal agreements
- Financial modelling
- Portfolio monitoring and reporting
You will ensure that all due diligence is completed for new co-investment opportunities, coordinating external advisors as required. You will collaborate with key internal stakeholders to executive transactions and you will manage the portfolio of investments including consents, processing management information and valuations.
It is essential you have demonstrable experience leading in venture capital investment. You will have significant experience in co-investing alongside other funds, ideally investing in Deeptech or Life Sciences, in addition to experience of working in small, agile teams. Although not essential, it would be an advantage to have experience working in a start-up and/or in fund-of-funds. We have offices in both London and Sheffield and this position could be based from either location. We support flexibility in work and would also encourage applications from those candidates who may prefer an element of home working, on the understanding that travel to the office will be necessary when business needs require.
As a Senior Manager with British Patient Capital it is expected that you will role model candour and integrity, support the wellbeing of colleagues, encourage diversity of thought, and strive for continuous improvement. You will be collaborative, celebrate differences and inspire a culture of inclusion. You will have excellent communication skills and you will be confident in building and maintaining key stakeholder relationships.
