What you will be doing

As an Industry Placement Student, you will join our newest segment, exploring an emerging part of the business and helping to drive forward new products and business initiatives.

The role will be extremely hands-on and you will be expected to take ownership of the direction of the new unit in which you will be placed. This will not only be an opportunity to directly contribute to and grow the bottom-line of an already rapidly growing company but a great kick-start to the career of entrepreneurial-minded and driven candidates.

  • Collaborate You will be working closely with other Placement Students with one of our Managers to deliver on multiple projects within business development
  • Connect You will understand and focus on revenue generation for our clients across an entirely new range of products 
  • Skills You will develop skills in negotiation, professional communication, project management, client service, conflict resolution and training

What you will have

This programme begins in either July or September 2018.

Ideal candidates will be studying a business-related degree and seeking an opportunity to apply the topics they have studied in a real-world environment. 

  • You are on a course that supports a one-year industry placement
  • You have strong academic credentials in any subject and noteworthy extracurricular leadership
  • You are driven by results and your own success
  • You have a client-first attitude

Onwards to our company and culture…

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.

About Us


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.
