New Client Engagement - Working Capital (4929)

Investec is a distinctive Specialist Bank serving clients principally in the UK 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 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!

This is an exciting opportunity for you to be part of an ambitious, diverse and dynamic team. The role will be based in our Manchester office and you will work closely with the London team and be responsible for producing a consistent flow of new-to-bank clients across the north of England. You will have a focus on two main areas;

Treasury Products & Distribution provides foreign exchange, interest rate, commodity and money-market services to predominantly founder or family run businesses, mid-large sized private and listed companies.

Investment Banking & Securities provides corporate finance and securities brokerage services. We offer our clients expertise in merges and acquisitions, initial public offerings, fundraising, management buyouts and restructuring advice. We also offer equity research, sales, trading and market making services.

The way in which we differentiate is through our people; all coming together to deliver on a common purpose. By hiring the right people, we can ensure that the service we give our clients is extraordinary and memorable; refreshingly human, personable, fun.

The Origination team is the engine room of the business, responsible for the first part of our clients' experience and journey with Investec. Starting off with the identification and qualification of potential clients, right the way through to arranging and attending the first meeting. You will learn how to develop, market and sell new business ideas to clients and have experience in the relevant markets and sectors, identifying, targeting and winning new clients.

What would make you Out of The Ordinary?

  • You are articulate, driven and tenacious.
  • You have an ability to think creatively and an empathy and curiosity to understand and connect with our clients.
  • You are personable, gregarious and enjoy collaborating in a team; partnering with senior Investment Bankers, Client Managers & Dealers as well as Marketing around targeting specific sectors, events, themes and geographies.
  • You are passionate about learning.
  • You work with pride, passion, enthusiasm and have a spark in your personality.

We don't just want any old personality though, we want your unique personality. We passionately believe in a diverse team, as diverse as the people and clients we speak to. A range of backgrounds and personalities from all walks of life. People who can question and challenge our own assumptions, and can bring their own ideas to the table. A team who share a common goal and purpose, and don't discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, gender, age or disability.

Hours and Experience

This role can be part time or full time. Flexible enough to work from home and work around the hours that suit you and your family. We are also flexible to adapt to your ideal working situation over time. As a results driven business, we believe in letting your results and performance do the talking.

No product or banking experience required. We are looking for sales ability, an innate desire to learn, and the curiosity to succeed
