This programme begins in either July or September 2018.

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.

  • You have strong academic credentials in any subject and noteworthy extracurricular leadership
  • You are driven by results and your own success

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

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.

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.
