Based just south of St James's Park and reporting to the Board, the Business Manager is a full time role, working alongside the Chairman, CTO and MD to support every aspect of the London business. The ideal candidate will be highly organised; happy to assume core corporate responsibilities; able to define and deliver required projects. He/she will be good at working with people and managing key external relationships. The candidate should be comfortable with contemporary IT, systems and working practices. Experience of working in a wealth management firm (or similar), dealing with the related products, structures and workflows, would be preferable but not a pre-requisite. Finally, the successful candidate will be a confident 'self-starter' who is willing to take responsibility and work to defined goals and timelines.
The role could suit an established business manager or a candidate who is ready to assume their first senior role.
Help define, develop and deliver operational plans and projects.
Negotiate, monitor and develop key strategic relationships with 3rd party providers (eg. the client custodian bank, an OEIC fund administrator).
Working with an established compliance consultant, manage regular compliance workflows for the London team.
Coordinate and drive key strategic initiatives (eg. investment fund launches, a 'green audit').
Develop and manage the production and distribution of regular marketing materials (physical/digital).
Support the CTO in delivering a secure work environment and a robust business continuity plan.
Deliver a safe, efficient work environment for staff members, both in the office and their homes.
In due course, assume responsibility for a limited number of staff, as their line manager.
The role could, in due course, expand to incorporate group responsibilities including similar aspects of HK and Malta business management.
Candidates must be eligible to live and work in the UK; sponsorship cannot be provided.
A competitive package of salary, bonus and benefits (private healthcare, pension contributions) is offered; the precise terms will depend on the experience of the successful candidate.
