Wellington Management offers comprehensive investment management capabilities that span nearly all segments of the global capital markets. Our investment solutions, tailored to the unique return and risk objectives of institutional clients in more than 60 countries, draw on a robust body of proprietary research and a collaborative culture that encourages independent thought and healthy debate. As a private partnership, we believe our ownership structure fosters a long-term view that aligns our perspectives with those of our clients.

We are transitioning to a hybrid work environment where both remote work and the office play a critical role. Our vision is a future where all employees are empowered to work flexibly to drive the best outcomes for our clients. Flexible work is a mindset and a core value. Our employees are encouraged to work remotely two days a week as a standard practice and will have flexibility in terms of working hours.


We are currently seeking a Business Analyst for our Client Regulatory & Business Communications team. Team members participate in cross functional working groups that develop and implement solutions to new regulations that impact clients. CRBC represents the Client Group and client perspective in informing the firm's implementation of the regulation, keeping client teams informed and educated about upcoming regulations, as well as leading the client outreach strategy. The Client Group looks to our team as a center of knowledge - the first line of information - and we strive to distill complex topics into layman's terms. We also engage with clients, either on our own or with functional subject matter experts.

Our team members come from a variety of backgrounds within the investment management industry, yet none have a regulatory background. What makes the work exciting is the constant learning, challenge and collaboration across functions. At the same time, we keep the client experience at the forefront while engaging with colleagues across the firm as solutions and strategy are developed.

The role is well suited for a person with demonstrated curiosity, collaboration, problem solving and drive with strong analytical, organizational and communication skills. The ability to learn quickly and distill complex topics into clear and comprehensible written and verbal communication is essential.

This role will be based out of London with a primary focus on the wide range of EU regulations that are reshaping our industry and impacting our clients. Based on the needs of the team and time permitting the analyst will get involved in global or other regional projects to broaden their experience. CRBC team members are currently located in London and Boston.

A background in the investment management industry is desired and may be across a range of functions - client service, operations, trading, etc. Please note prior experience/background is not required in these regulations nor is a regulatory background.

The Business Analyst will primarily be responsible for supporting our client communications and project management efforts on various topics impacting our clients and the Client Group.

The ideal candidate will possess strong communication skills, excellent judgment, the ability to learn quickly and multitask.
