Knowledge, Skills, and Mindsets:
Relentless ambition – You like the challenge of playing at a level significantly senior to you, interacting with the C-Suite, Board, investors and senior market stakeholders
Bias towards Learning – You are a curious, continuous learner, and you already know that the test of a first-rate intelligence is to hold two contradictory ideas at the same time. (You will be the type who will google where this quote is from)
Bias towards action - You enjoy working in a tight-knit world-class team. As a self- starter, you enjoy handling multiple deliverables in a fast-moving environment.
Most consulting firms, banks or fast-growing “start-up” teams have this.
Numeracy – You should be able to use excel for data analytics and tracking
Detail orientation: You take uncompromising pride in your work and would even proof-read something your CEO has sent you before forwarding
Critical thinking – You must be a logical thinker. This one is hard to “develop” unless you have had either a world-class education, or a world-class boss, or are yourself truly a naturally deep thinker. We would have to interview you for this.
Effective presentation skills – You enjoy crafting world-class presentations for senior audiences while anticipating questions in advance, and being prepared with your own analysis and internal logic to defend your thoughts
You will be based at our head office in New Friends Colony
You should be flexible to travel to locations where our work is happening
You should expect a performance-based, fair and very feedback-oriented culture
Your exact starting salary will depend on your experience, fit and your potential
