Enclude (www.encludesolutions.com) is an advisory firm dedicated to building inclusive and prosperous local economies. We provide integrated capacity and capital services that help clients and partners design, connect, finance and build solutions that generate sustainable business results and positive social and environmental outcomes. Enclude’s staff and affiliated consultants work in four registered offices (Netherlands, United States, United Kingdom, and Pakistan) and in project locations across the world, including Sub-Saharan Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, Europe and Central Asia.
Enclude’s Capital Advisory Services (CAS) practice, based in London and Washington DC, provides a range of services including fund structuring and capital raising, corporate finance and M&A advisory, and transaction-related offerings such as loan fund servicing, third party due diligence and investor relations. It also provides selected consultancy services, focused on thought-leading developments in inclusive financial services, sustainable business models and social entrepreneurship. In providing these services, the Capital Advisory team is fully integrated with colleagues in Enclude’s Capacity Solutions practice – for purposes of knowledge sharing and developing the transaction pipeline – and also works closely with Enclude’s regional offices and representatives.
CAS clients include emerging markets focused funds, small business and microfinance banks, and companies seeking to provide products and services (such as energy, housing, water, education and health) to the “base of the pyramid.” Investors include sector-specialist funds, development finance institutions, high net worth individuals, family offices, foundations and other institutions such as pension funds.
We are a regulated business, authorized to conduct corporate finance work in the UK by the FCA.
CAS is seeking a mid-level professional to join its growing core team, which currently numbers 9, mostly based in London. Initially, this position will be filled under a 6-month contract, with a view to a full-time position upon successful conclusion of this contract. US based candidates who do not already have FINRA Series 7 registration will be expected to pass the exam within 6 months of hire.
The Associate will be expected to work on specific mandates – both in execution and in development – and more general business building and strengthening of practice infrastructure and systems. After a brief ramping up period, he or she will be expected to lead the delivery of smaller mandates and to be responsible for building relationships with specified clients and investors. The Associate will be a primary point of contact for certain foundations, family offices, HNWIs and DFIs. The Associate must therefore be able to interact confidently with senior managers and non-executives within both client and investor bases and to balance competing demands with keen attention to detail, and a low level of supervision of routine tasks.
To apply, please send resume, cover letter and writing sample to email@example.com by Monday, January 15, 2018. Applications without a cover letter and writing sample will not be considered.
