Graduate Research Analyst (Origination)
You have an inner (or not-so-inner) geek. You’re not afraid to challenge and be challenged as long as you’re making things better. You work best with people who make you laugh.
Logical conclusion: you belong at Beauhurst.
Beauhurst is on a mission to find and track every ambitious, high-growth business in the UK. It’s going well – in fact, we’re already the number one data source for this sort of information. And we’ve built a clever online platform so that we can share an unprecedented amount of it with our users. They tell us it’s enormously valuable but, as an ambitious company ourselves, we’re not done yet.
That’s why we’re on the hunt for more brilliant people.
Creating top quality data is core to our business. The vital first step is finding and analysing that data to make sure it’s always spot on. As part of our Origination team, your job will be to comb through a range of public and proprietary sources and to reach out to the various bodies (financial, public sector...) that can help us on our mission. You’ll be on the hunt for companies with high-growth and ambition - we’ll teach you what signals to look out for, which means you’ll learn all about the start-up, scale-up and high growth space.
You’ll also get the chance to take part in other projects. Whether that’s working with our developers on exciting new tools, looking at new research areas, making our processes more efficient or conducting custom research for our clients, these projects will provide ample opportunity to learn new skills.
You'll do a great job if you have a strong personality, good sense of humour and determination together with the confidence to put yourself out there to make new contacts. We’re also looking for someone with an analytical mind, strong writing skills and excellent attention to detail.
If you don’t know anything about finance and business and the like, don’t despair – plenty of us in the team have degrees completely unrelated to these fields (such as Philosophy, Biology and History). If we think you’re a good fit then we’re happy to train you up from scratch. We’re ultimately looking for people with amazing potential and a positive, can-do attitude. Knowledge of our space is just a nice positive.
Once you’re here, we’re committed to your learning and development. We have a great track record of promoting from within, and if you’re interested in something we will support you with books, courses, and conferences.
Our calendar is full of company events and our perks aren’t bad either. All our people get a matched pension contribution, season ticket travel loan, free mobile phone insurance, half price cinema tickets, a well-stocked beer fridge and more.
We’ve just launched a substantial options scheme, giving you the chance to share in Beauhurst’s growth and success.
That all sound up your street? Then it’s about time you applied!
