Your role will involve a mix of regular quarterly analyses and a range of ad hoc queries and projects covering all aspects of the real estate business.

About Schroders
We're a global investment manager. We help institutions, intermediaries and individuals around the world invest money to meet their goals, fulfil their ambitions, and prepare for the future.

We have around 5,000 people on six continents. And we've been around for over 200 years, but keep adapting as society and technology changes. What doesn't change is our commitment to helping our clients, and society, prosper.

The base
We moved into our new HQ in the City of London in 2018. We're close to our clients, in the heart of the UK's financial centre. And we have everything we need to work flexibly.

• 1-2 years work experience in a commercial environment.

The knowledge, experience and qualifications that will help
• An interest in commercial real estate and what makes a good investment.
• A knowledge of MSCI / IPD real estate reports would be an advantage, but is not essential and we will provide full training.

What you'll be like
• An eye for detail and someone who appreciates the importance of accurate data.
• An ability to prioritise different tasks and meet deadlines.
