Background on role

Staude Capital is looking for a reliable and experienced compliance and operations operator to become part of our highly focused team. This person would head up the compliance side of our business and step into the role that our compliance host has performed in the past. In addition, we would need this person to take on operational projects that come up from time to time. We envisage that this person would also sit on the board of our UK company.

The Role

The role would be for 24 hours a week including an 8-hour Wednesday each week at the Staude offices in Moorgate. Initially the new joiner would start off working with our compliance host to understand all the compliance parts of our business with the view of bringing every function in house. In tandem, this person would also begin and coordinate the full scope AIFM FCA application process. Ideally, we are looking for a candidate that has experience but isn't afraid to get their hands dirty in the nitty gritty either. We need a person that knows how to get things done and isn't afraid to step in and support colleagues.
