About the job:
An opportunity has become available for a candidate to join our Middle & Back Office team (MBO). We are looking for someone to assist in the day to day running of the department as well as interfacing closely with many areas of the business including Trading and Technology.

Working closely with everyone across the MBO, you will develop an understanding of each team's daily and monthly processes, these include:
Daily valuation of Funds and Managed Accounts and reconciliation against external administrators
Process daily subscription and redemption information to assist with ensuring appropriate trading levels are maintained

Once you have got to grips with the ongoing tasks, there are many other things for you to get involved with:
Assist with new account & asset on-boarding processes
Work alongside the collateral management provider to ensure all daily margin calls are met
Develop a deep understanding of Operational risk and subsequent controls
Assist the with year-end Financial Statement process
Strong analytic and problem-solving skills and a can do attitude, as well as working knowledge of excel are a must. Experience of working in SQL would be an advantage.
It's likely that, in time, you'd want to work towards a professional qualification such as the IMC, CFA or ACCA/CIMA and we will happily support you through those studies.
If this sounds like an interesting opportunity we would love to hear from you.
