An established, top performing global hedge fund are looking to make a newly created hire in to its expanding London office.

The firm’s European business has grown exponentially over the past 2yrs, in particular the exotics business, hence why my client is now looking to hire a Trading Assistant specifically for the exotics desk. This is a unique opportunity as you will be the sole TA for the exotics desk, working alongside the Portfolio Managers, Research Analysts and Head Trader for that business. The operations / middle office team are separate and cover all desks in the business, meaning that the TA role is based on the exotics desk itself with a pure TA / markets focused remit. We see this as an exciting opportunity for somebody that might have future front office ambitions given the huge learning potential, even more so as there will be a path internally to be hired in to a trading role on the exotics desk in around 2yrs time.

The ideal candidate will currently be working in an IB exotics trade support or trader assistant position. The client is happy to hire a candidate from a hedge fund operations / middle office / trader assistant background if they possess an excellent academic record. There is flexibility around level, so we encourage any interested candidate with 3-10yrs relevant experience to apply.

We have flexibility around the base salary to hire the right candidate, but most likely you will receive a 10-20%+ increase on current base. Bonuses make up a large part of the package, as if you are an exceptional performer then you will earn a six figure total comp package.
