      Strategic Adviser/Executive – Healthcare




      A rapidly growing global strategic advisory firm for businesses and investors is looking for excellent people to join its London office as Executives. The firm is specifically seeking accomplished professionals who have experience in the healthcare sector.


      Executives operate at the heart of several client teams, and develop advisory and client management skills – learning the ‘trade’ in a systematic fashion. The primary focus for Executives will be on ensuring the high-quality execution of projects, but they will also be encouraged to contribute to the development of the firm more broadly: client relationships, wider connectivity, people, and culture.


      The highest-achieving Executives can be promoted to Director and then elected to the Partnership within a small number of years: performance and merit trump time served.



      Skills, Knowledge & Experience

        • Between three and five years working in either strategy, finance, investment, M&A/corporate development, regulatory, legal or corporate affairs roles in health insurance or healthcare delivery organisations – in addition to between two and five years working at a top-tier professional services firm in roles such as lawyer, consultant or investment banker focusing on the healthcare industry.
        • Experience advising senior decision-makers orally and in writing on matters of real importance.
        • Commercial experience in two or more of the following countries: Germany, France, the UK, Switzerland and the Nordic region. An ability to communicate effectively, both verbally and in writing, in French and/or German as well as English is also a positive.


      Person Specification

      • Problem-solvers: Executives must be able to understand new issues quickly; to make sense of, and ‘join the dots’ between, diverse sources of qualitative information; and to demonstrate nuanced human, commercial and political judgement in interpreting such information.
      • Sophisticated advisers: Executives must be able to use the evidence available to them – which is usually complex and can be ambiguous – to build cogent arguments; derive credible conclusions; and develop pragmatic, actionable commercial advice for clients.
      • Persuasive communicators: The firm also needs to have the ability to convey findings and recommendations in clear, convincing and compelling fashion, both orally and in writing.
      • Natural networkers with high EQ, and the ability to establish and maintain warm relationships with a wide range of people. Sensitivity to others’ needs and good judgement are essential.
      • Collegial potential leaders: The firm’s culture is extremely collaborative. Sharp elbows and arrogance are simply not tolerated. The firm is looking for fun and interesting people who will enjoy the job and who can, over time, contribute to the growth and management of the business. The firm to hire people who have the potential to be Partners within the company.
      • Capable generalists: While many of us have specific areas of expertise, curious by nature and interested in people, politics and business.
      • Resourceful entrepreneurs: Seeking individuals with ideas, creativity and a bias towards action, rather than passengers. Growth will come from recruiting outstanding talent, and commitment to finding innovative ways to use and deploy assets.
      • Individuals with excellent academic records: The team includes people who have demonstrated high levels of academic success at top universities around the world.
      • Successful candidates will excel in high-performing environments. They will be intellectually dynamic; able to think commercially; comfortable with ambiguity and complexity; interested in – and engaging company for – senior people; and confident in delivering impartial, nuanced advice to business leaders.

The firm also offers a generous range of benefits including pension, health insurance, and 25 days’ holiday per annum (plus the days between Christmas and New Year).
