Posted on Dec 13, 2018 by AlphaSights
Leading professionals around the world often find themselves in situations where they don't have the knowledge they need to confidently make decisions and move forward. That's when they turn to AlphaSights. Our people bring commercial instincts, business acumen, and a whatever-it-takes mentality to every project to truly understand our clients' unique questions and identify the precise experts who can offer valuable insights. With a better understanding of the world than they had before engaging AlphaSights, our clients accelerate their progress. They harness newfound insights and knowledge to think faster and smarter than the competition, generate ideas, and make extraordinary breakthroughs to drive the business forward.
Founded in 2008, AlphaSights currently employs around 500 professionals in eight offices around the globe and regularly ranks as one of the fastest-growing companies in the world.
As an Industry Placement Student, you will join our newest segment, exploring an emerging part of the business and helping to drive forward new products and business initiatives. You can expect a steep learning curve and a fast-paced environment. You will be expected to learn quickly, manage competing deadlines, and deliver projects to your team under time pressure.
You will be working closely with other Placement Students with one of our Managers to deliver on multiple projects within business development. This will include building the same skills as those of our full-time Associates, with a focus on revenue generation, excellence in client service, and proactively providing our clients with an entirely new range of products.
Successful Placement Students will have the option of continuing their relationship with AlphaSights by working remotely on an ad hoc basis following their year of work in our London office and will be encouraged to apply for the full-time Associate role after graduation from their University.
The role will be extremely hands-on and you will be expected to take ownership of the direction of the new unit in which you will be placed. This will not only be an opportunity to directly contribute to and grow the bottom-line of an already rapidly growing company but a great kick-start to the career of entrepreneurial-minded and driven candidates.
