London, Munich or New York
1st year MBA with 2 years of post-grad experience in PE, consulting, investment banking or similar.
Good finance skills, emotional intelligence, a strong work ethic and sense of priority.
Our 12-week Summer Associate Programme is a great pathway for MBA students to get to know our team and our business.
It gives you a chance to see how we work and learn about investment, and portfolio management, through being involved in it. You’ll get a chance to see how the different parts of the business work and interact, as well as learning about our unique approach to investment, sharing operational know-how and promoting a culture of growth. By the end of the summer it’s likely you’ll have participated in a process (“deal”) or generated a few interesting leads. You’ll also, most likely, have led on a live workstream (for example, the commercial due diligence, or the model), attended the Investment Committees of projects you’re contributing to and presented on your work.
At the end of the 12 weeks the right candidates will have the chance to receive a permanent offer, based in our London, Munich or New York office.
What we’re looking for:
We’re looking for MBA students interested in spending their summer learning more about Hg, who are ambitious, energetic champions with a strong track record, so far. That means at least two years of postgraduate work experience in private equity, strategy consulting, investment banking, or other relevant roles. Whilst private equity experience isn’t essential, having a clearly demonstrable passion for this type of investment absolutely is.
More specifically, you’ll need good finance skills (you will perform LBO modelling and become familiar with advanced finance/accounting concepts during the internship), emotional intelligence (to engage with founders of rapidly growing companies), and a strong work ethic and sense of priority (as you will likely manage several pieces of work at once).
Sound like you? We want to hear from you.
