A boutique hedge fund in operation for nearly 20 years is looking for a Junior Accountant to join an established operations team. This is an excellent opportunity for a recent graduate in the early stages of professional accountancy studies who wants more than a straight-forward accounts role.

The successful candidate will work within a small team covering finance, operations and compliance and will ultimately have an opportunity to contribute to a wide array of tasks and projects across these business areas.

The firm is small by design where individuals are encouraged to grow and develop skills outside their core specialisation to complement others in the firm and adapt to an ever-changing landscape.

Key Responsibilities

  • Daily fund NAV calculations
  • Cash & position reconciliations
  • Monitoring of FX exposures
  • Margin & cash management

  • Invoice processing
  • Management fee postings
  • Aid the delivery of monthly management accounts
  • Assist with preparing information required for audit
  • Prepare relevant information for the compliance officer
  • Provide operations cover for trade confirmations and settlements

Candidate Qualifications and Attributes

  • Strong academics with a First Class or 2:1 degree
  • Excellent numeracy skills, problem-solving ability and attention to detail
  • Team player with strong communication skills
  • Self-motivated with the ability to work with a high degree of autonomy
