Understanding fixed income markets will be highly advantageous in being able to understand the motivations of the investment team and being able to demonstrate a geniune interest in them is required.

In terms of character, this will suit someone who is highly proactive with strong problem solving skills and who enjoys working in a small, agile team. The team operate a hybrid office/home working approach.

Requirements

  • Strong SQL / SQL Server experience
  • Positive 'can do' attitude, happy working independently but enjoys working in a team
