Posted Aug 9, 2017 - Requisition No. 59985
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 build 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.
Our one-of-a-kind rotation program offers you the unique opportunity to:
Analytics - London
We fly you to London to embark on your Bloomberg career in our Analytics department, providing the best possible experience to our clients - the users of the Bloomberg Terminal.
You’ll start on a comprehensive training programme, 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. We’ll enhance your skills in relationship management and objection handling, and we‘ll also give you the opportunity to specialise in one of the four main asset classes - Fixed Income, Equities, Foreign Exchange or Commodities.
Upon joining the desk, you’ll interact directly with these users every day via our 'Instant Bloomberg' chat system, on the phone, and in person; answering their questions, conducting training and positioning new functionality to meet their immediate business needs.
On any given day in Analytics we respond to over 12,000 queries in more than 15 languages. The variety of the problems we solve is incredible. One moment, we could be working with a Portfolio Manager who’s worried about risk. We show her how to use the Risk Analytics platform to find the most volatile securities in her holdings. The next - we may be chatting to a trader who needs help understanding the liquidity profile of two potential investments. We teach him how to size them up against each other.
After 18-24 months, we fly you to Dubai, where as a true Bloomberg specialist, you’ll join our team of highly-motivated, financially-astute relationship and account managers, whose role it is to lead and grow our business across Sub-Saharan Africa.
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’ll 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’ll actively partner with other internal business areas in order to meet your clients' needs as accurately and as comprehensively as possible.
Why is Sub-Saharan Africa important now?As an emerging market, Sub-Saharan Africa has many similarities with Asia and parts of Latin America, in terms of market growth potential.
There’s huge potential for our clients to attract international investment through exposure on the terminal, providing direct access to 325,000 users - representing some of the most influential market players - as well as transforming their approach to news, data, trading, risk and compliance.
This is an opportunity for you to become a proud member of a team that enables emerging economies to expand and strengthen, in many ways fundamentally changing the historic trading behaviours of markets in the region.
