Reporting to our Trading and Execution Manager, you will be part of a growing team, currently two, working across multi asset classes, including FX, rates, OTC swaps and equities.

AustralianSuper is the largest superannuation (pension) fund in Australia and one of the 25 largest pension funds globally. We invest the retirement savings of our 2.3 million plus members to help them achieve their best possible retirement outcome.

The Fund is experiencing significant growth and is expanding its investment capabilities in London and New York.

To support the ongoing growth of the Fund, we established a permanent team in London. This enables the Fund to expand its global investment portfolio and build our international profile by having a permanent presence in Europe and hiring local specialists who will deepen our international relationships and support implementing local best practice based on local experience.

In a small scale office environment, you will be exposed to professionals across all of our Investment Asset classes, as well as other functions required to support them, giving you the chance to build broad relationships, gain a deeper understanding of how each of these areas operate and get involved in activities outside of your immediate role or team.

Our office is based at 2 Pancras Square in the Kings Cross which is part of the Kings Cross redevelopment project which is one of the core assets of our investment portfolio.
