Division: SMART Industries Group
Location: Bengaluru, India
Employment Type: Permanent
Closing Date: 03 November 2021
There are 5 levels in the team – Associate, Executive, Manager, Director & Team Leader. However, the team is very flat and people at all levels are involved in the real detail, and in representational work, both to Investment Committee and externally.
There are 3 parts of the job (at all levels):
At Investment Associate/Executive level, you are likely to spend the majority of your time on execution; by the time you are a senior Investment Executive you should be able to run with most of the execution stages largely unassisted. However there are no hard lines on responsibilities, given that it is a small entrepreneurial team within the larger organization and you will have the freedom to contribute to all aspects of deal-making and portfolio management.
We are looking for candidates that will deliver from day one and who have the drive, ambition and tenacity to progress through the ranks.
Typically, candidates will have a solid grounding in fundamental analytics (financial / commercial analysis, valuation, financial modelling) from private equity/ venture capital, investment banking or strategy consulting. The successful candidate will likely have at least 5 years work experience; an MBA, or similar, is helpful. Experience in the India food & agri, consumer, healthcare and education space, either by investing or supporting transactions, will be an advantage.
Over and above quantitative skills, analytical rigour and attention to detail, the softer skills we are looking for include: (1) ability to look at complex problems and get to the root of the issue, (2) ability to build relationships with companies, (3) ability to communicate clearly on paper and in person, and (4) ability to multi-task.
Candidates will also need to evidence previous experience working in, or demonstrable passion for South Asia, or at the very least an understanding of emerging markets.
