Please note that we are no longer actively recruiting for this role.
Individuals who have a keen interest and feel strongly that the role resonates, may write to Steve Tatters directly, per the instructions below, so that we can be in touch regarding any potential future opportunities.
We need that rare combination of intelligent confidence tempered by humility. We consider ourselves to be hiring a brain, the package is unimportant, but it is essential that the brain is plastic, i.e. capable of adapting and learning and powered by a hungry curiosity.
The role entails a lot of reading, some thoughtful discussions and plenty of fieldwork (getting out and seeing businesses in action). Patience is essential because it takes a long time to develop expertise and most of our work takes years to bear fruit. Analyst is really the wrong word; what we are looking for is a scholar.
You would be joining a friendly team; there are fourteen of us in total. Staff at Phoenix organise their own work within a loose framework. For some this freedom is unnerving but for the right person, it is highly productive.
We would like to see a well thought out handwritten letter accompanying every application. Please send these by post for the attention of Steve Tatters to: Phoenix, 64-66 Glentham Road, Barnes, London, SW13 9JJ.
