Our client is currently experiencing significant growth and is now looking for a team member to join the Business Intelligence sub-Saharan Africa team, based in London. The firm is open to different levels of work experience, ranging from recent graduates to seasoned analysts.
The successful candidate will help clients identify, understand, and mitigate the risks involved in entering new business relationships in diverse and challenging jurisdictions. This includes a particular focus on the analysis of potential corruption threats associated with potential African business partners. The role will also require an ability to clearly convey the political and competitive dynamics at play in different countries across the region.
High quality research and analysis, covering many industry sectors, is a key constituent of the work. Candidates will, therefore, have an excellent academic record and a demonstrable interest in sub-Saharan Africa. Experience of conducting research in a commercial context would also be a distinct advantage. The successful candidate will be inquiring and tenacious in the execution of investigative research, and innovative in the development of new research techniques and resources. The ability to manage multiple projects, often with tight deadlines, is also a critical aspect of the work.
Strong language and writing skills are essential. In addition to native-level spoken and written English, fluency in French and/or Portuguese would be a distinct advantage.
A competitive salary and a package of other benefits are available to the successful candidate.
