Associate Programme, Hamburg
What you will be doing
What does the ideal role look like for you? Autonomy, high personal impact, and an introduction to the world of business without pigeonholing yourself into any one industry? A clear path towards leading your own team and managing blue-chip client relationships in two years’ time? If this resonates with you, read on.
As an Associate, you will focus on clients’ knowledge gaps and identify specialists with the knowledge that can address them. It's a fast-paced, client facing, communication-intense role, with a clear focus on effectiveness and revenue generation. Associates develop skills in negotiation, professional communication, project management, client service, conflict resolution and training, which pave their way to successful careers in commercial and operational leadership.
From the moment you join us as an Associate, you’ll have significant autonomy and responsibility. You’ll get intense training and countless professional development opportunities to help you excel in your role, and you’ll have opportunities to work and spend time with like-minded colleagues from across the globe right from the get-go.
Connect You will act as the connection point between our clients and industry experts
Research You will conduct surface-level research on companies and industries to identify the precise experts around the globe who can answer our clients’ questions
Reach out You will spend considerable time reaching out by phone to experts to assess whether their expertise is a relevant match to the client request you’re working on
Support You will be supported by regular one-to-one meetings with your manager, as well as other opportunities for training and development throughout
What you will have
We’re not concerned about what you’ve studied, and you don’t need to have a specific type of experience to join us: we’ll teach you how to be successful in this role, but you should have an interest in working in a client-facing, business-oriented capacity.
Through your CV and cover letter, we want you to demonstrate both your leadership skills and how you achieved success in a work, academic or extra-curricular environment.

We are AlphaSights
We’re in this business to execute a big, future-proof mission: to connect the world’s top professionals with the world’s best knowledge.
Our Culture - What we do
We founded AlphaSights in 2008 to tackle one of society’s most intractable problems: useful knowledge is dispersed, hidden and buried in the minds of individuals around the world. By implication, relevant knowledge is rarely available where it is needed most. Our founding insight was that digital connectivity would provide the tools to tackle this problem directly.
We envision a world where every decision maker can effortlessly tap the world’s collective knowledge, reducing ignorance and the waste of resources it entails. A world where knowledge available somewhere informs critical decisions everywhere.
Leading professionals around the world often find themselves in situations where they don’t have the knowledge they need to confidently make decisions and move forward: that’s when they turn to AlphaSights. Our people bring their commercial instincts and outstanding business acumen to every project to truly understand our clients’ unique questions, before identifying the precise experts who can offer valuable insights.
Whether we connect a leading investor to specific expertise in a faraway market, help a corporation understand a new continent, or work with a social entrepreneur through our social impact business unit, we believe access to knowledge drives human progress.
Through hard work, drive, emotional intelligence and a commitment to delivering results, you’ll be on the path to becoming Manager in two years and Vice President in five after joining as an Associate.
AlphaSights regularly rank as one of the fastest-growing companies in the world. We are a global team of ambitious, purpose-driven professionals committed to accelerating progress for our clients and our people alike. But it's not all hard work: we hold sports tournaments, trips abroad and other events throughout the year, letting us relax and enjoy our successes as a team.
The thing that I love the most is that balance between the autonomy that you get and also the sense of structure and support that we have as a company.
At AlphaSights we’re proud of our healthy streak of competitiveness and make a point of celebrating our successes. Whether it’s our annual office retreats, a last minute team outing or a well-earned drink after work, celebrations here are never too far away.
Our London office is an open, friendly place to work, with perks ranging from free breakfast and snacks in the office to our weekly morning yoga classes and corporate gym discounts for all employees. You can also look forward to regular drinks on a Friday, a chance to get to know your colleagues outside of the office.
