      Analyst – Business Intelligence

      London

      £Negotiable

      Permanent

      A global sustainability consultancy is seeking a highly motivated graduate to join its team of investigative due diligence researchers. The successful candidate will have completed (or will be studying towards) a qualitative research degree – in history, politics, languages or other similar fields – and be fluent in a foreign language.

      The firm is particularly interested in candidates with fluency in a variety of languages, particularly Arabic, Turkish, Spanish, and Portuguese.

      Key Responsibilities

      Analysts begin their career within the team specialising in open source due diligence work. These reports provide an overview of major compliance red flags associated with a target company or individual, such as corruption, political exposure, and sanctions. Typically, analysts will work on reports from multiple jurisdictions, before progressing on to region-specific reports based on language and regional expertise: the aim is to train confident due diligence researchers able to navigate complicated, cross-border issues. Analysts might spend their morning researching a high-profile legal dispute in the US, before turning their attention to unravelling an obscure offshore corporate structure in the afternoon.

       

      Once fully trained, analysts will expand the scope of their work – taking on more complicated projects in conjunction with senior staff; developing regional expertise in regulatory and compliance risks; training new members of staff; and taking on business development responsibilities. For exceptional candidates, the analyst role lays the foundations for career progression.
