2021 Financial Products Analytics and Sales – Sydney
Posted Feb 28, 2020 - Requisition No. 81587
Bloomberg is the market leader in providing high-quality data, news and analytics to professionals in business, finance and government. With over 17,000 employees in 176 locations around the world we are a truly global organization entering new markets, launching ventures and pushing boundaries.
The transparency Bloomberg brings to the financial markets is integral to our culture, our offices and our interactions with one another. We're measured by the quality of our contributions, not by a title. We don't need an open-door policy- we sit in open work spaces, shoulder-to-shoulder.
Who we look for
You're the first of your friends to know about a major economic event. You have an appetite not only to see the world but to learn what makes it tick. You establish relationships quickly and effortlessly and have a real desire for a career in a client-facing role. You're professional and personable, intelligent and analytical. You're a solution-provider, with a passion for providing platinum customer service.
Training & Career Track
It’s rare to find an opportunity that gives you such early exposure to clients. You’ll begin your career in the Analytics department, where you’ll be responsible for providing the best possible user experience for our Bloomberg Terminal clients.
Analytics (1-2 years)
You’ll begin your career in the Analytics department, where you will be responsible for providing the best possible experience to our clients - the users of the Bloomberg Terminal. You will be interacting directly with these users every single day, via our 'Instant Bloomberg' chat system, on the phone and in person- answering their questions, conducting training and providing rapid solutions to meet their immediate business needs.
We will provide you with comprehensive training from the outset- covering all aspects of the financial markets- economic principles, market players and asset classes- while teaching you all there is to know about the functionality and analytical tools the Bloomberg Terminal has to offer, and the various other internal departments who support our clients.
We will enhance your skills in relationship management and objection handling, and we will also give you the opportunity to specialize in one of the four main asset classes- Fixed Income, Equity, Foreign Exchange or Commodities.
Sales and Relationship Management
After training as a true Bloomberg specialist in Analytics, you join our team of highly-motivated, financially-astute relationship managers, whose role it is to lead and grow our business across Australia and New Zealand.
We give you real responsibility and autonomy to handle your existing clients, while also looking to you to identify new business opportunities throughout your region. You will take a truly consultative approach to the sales process, deeply understanding your clients' businesses as you visit, support, train and sell to market players from across the industry.
Furthermore, you will actively partner with other internal business areas in order to meet your clients' needs as accurately and as comprehensively as possible.
You'll need to have:
- Bachelor's degree (upcoming or recent graduates- up to 3 years work experience)
- Demonstrated passion or interest in the financial markets, and a strong desire to work in the financial services industry
- Strong critical-thinking and problem-solving skills
- Excellent communication skills (both written and verbal)
- Ability to learn and adapt quickly in a rapidly changing environment
- Real aspiration to work in a client-facing role, with a strong interest in building relationships while selling a premium product
- Citizenship or permanent residency of Australia or New Zealand
We'd love to see:
- Degree in a Finance, Economics or Social Sciences discipline

- Work-experience in a client-facing role
- Interest in technology
