An expanding hedge fund that have a multi-billion dollar AUM are looking to make a newly created front office support hire.

Sat in the middle office team, we are looking for a hire to replace the current incumbent who is moving internally in to a Trading role. That individual was ‘number two’ in the team directly supporting its flagship, largest AUM fund, hence why we need an experienced hire to refill the seat. The core remit of the role covers MO (P&L analysis, valuations, pricing etc.), Trader Assistant and some operational responsibilities (albeit juniors in the team will take more of the weight in this regard). Given the seniority of the role, you will be the point of contact to handle Trader and Portfolio Manager queries on line issues. The fund have a track record of promoting individuals in this team in to more senior management roles, but also in to many other areas including trading, business management and risk management.

We are looking for a hire with an excellent academic record, including solid A-levels and a 2:1 from a red brick university. You should be an experienced Operations, Middle Office or Trade Support professional from either a large Hedge Fund or a top-tier investment bank. It is a pre-requisite to have strong derivatives knowledge. You will be chatty, outgoing and generally fun to have around, with the premise that you will therefore interact well with the Trading team.

There is flexibility on base salary to secure the right hire, but also the budget available to provide the individual with an attractive increase on current base. The fund have a track record of paying top performers a bonus that is above market rate and as such total comp numbers beat what most other large funds are paying.
