Rare opportunity to join a fast growing lending business working within an ambitious and empowered team. We're looking to hire at the Associate and Associate Director level. 

Investec's debt finance team seeks an experienced London-based deal doer to develop client relationships and lead innovative debt solutions for UK and European mid-market sponsors and corporate clients. The successful candidate will have the benefit of a highly flexible product suite able to finance across the debt capital structure. In addition to bank and higher yielding direct lending solutions, there is the ability to provide underwrite and/or bridge structures where a client need exists. You will operate within a highly collaborative, intellectually stimulating environment and be part of a team that will support your development and success. Our people, our clients and our long term reputation are at the heart of everything we do and we seek to sustain this via a high ownership and values-driven culture. Consequently we seek people who themselves have high integrity and strong values and who are keen to contribute to our continued team success.

We seek candidates with the following attributes:

  • An experienced and organised investment professional keen to develop and widen their deal structuring capabilities across a wide range of potential client solutions.  
  • A proactive investor mind-set with considered views around risk-adjusted returns.
  • An entrepreneurial desire to help build a long term, sustainable client franchise and asset portfolio.
  • A team-first collaborative approach, high levels of initiative and strong interpersonal skills.

The opportunity requires a person who enjoys developing client relationships and helping clients meet their value-creation objectives via the provision of creative and differentiated finance solutions. We are looking for passionate people who are keen to be part of a business where their individual view is respected and their experience will help shape the success of the franchise.  

About you:

  • A track record of analysing and structuring finance solutions in the UK and European lower mid-market and mid-market sponsor and corporate environment.
  • A high level of competence in the analysis of company financial statements, business, operational and financial risks.
  • Strong presentation and interpersonal skills.
  • Relevant experience in European investment and debt markets.

Investec is a distinctive Specialist Bank serving clients principally in the UK, Australia and South Africa. Our culture gives us our edge: we work hard to find colleagues who'll think out of the ordinary and we put them in environments where they'll flourish. We combine a flat structure with a focus on internal mobility. If you can bring an entrepreneurial spirit and a desire to learn and collaborate to your work, this could be the boost your career deserves.

Research shows that some candidates - particularly female candidates - can be reluctant to apply to a role unless they meet all the criteria. We pride ourselves on our entrepreneurial spirit here and welcome you to do the same – if the role excites you, please don't let our person specification hold you back. Get in touch!

**We are open to conversations about flexible working so please ask**

Could your career thrive in this setting? Could you see yourself making an impact? If this is the career opportunity you've been waiting for please apply today or contact us for more information.
