The Company


AlphaSights is a global leader in knowledge search. Founded in 2008, we have established ourselves as a go-to knowledge partner for decision-makers across private equity, asset management, consulting and corporate strategy, helping them access the highly specific industry expertise they need to make better decisions, faster. AlphaSights is growing fast and, with three new offices opened in the last year alone, offers unrivalled impact opportunity and career progression.

The Role

AlphaSights is looking for commercially minded graduates to join its fast-growing European teams in Hamburg and London. As an Associate, you will be acting as the intermediary between our clients on one side, and targeted industry experts on the other. Your role is to focus on our clients' knowledge gaps and define the specialist knowledge required to address them. You then research companies and industries in order to identify and engage leading subject-matter specialists, using sound judgment to qualify their expertise based on the project in question, and connect them with our clients in real time. Although there is no typical day, there are often many projects running concurrently and our teams have to learn the most efficient way of identifying expertise quickly.

London is our European hub. As a German speaker, you will be working on both English and German speaking projects. As you progress, you will take on account management responsibilities for our German-speaking accounts - some of the largest PE funds, consultancies and corporations in the world. With the opening of our German office in Hamburg later in 2016, the opportunity exists to contribute directly to the growth and success of our German operations.

We believe the skills developed at the Associate level pave the way to a successful career in commercial and operational leadership. AlphaSights is a great training ground for successful careers in account management, business development, team leadership and entrepreneurship.
