Researcher (Investment Funds)
£20-28k, plus generous benefits
The data collected and managed by our Funds & DFMs research team is used by the majority of the UK adviser market to aid with client recommendations, to power our industry leading ratings and used by some of the largest names in the industry to provide instant and unbiased market and competitor intelligence.
We're currently seeking two dedicated, diligent and enthusiastic individuals to join this team.
For the permanent, you must already have good knowledge of investment funds
For the maternity cover role (starting Sept, for 12 months), you just need an interest, plus the willingness and ability to learn quickly.
The role primarily involves: Researching fund information using the internet, industry press, fund manager literature and telephone; Building effective relationships with fund management firms to facilitate the acquisition of accurate and up-to-date information; Understanding and interpreting fund and DFM information, identifying differences from currently held data and updating the Defaqto database with new information, in a timely manner and to a high level of accuracy.
To be successful in the role, you'll need the ability to interpret information, problem solve and think analytically, together with fast and accurate data input and audit skills. You'll also need to be a proactive team player with an inquisitive, methodical approach to your work and a keen eye for detail.
Ideally, you'll already have a good working knowledge of investment funds, but if not then you'll definitely need the interest, dedication and ability to learn quickly — and we'll provide you with the training to do this effectively.
In return, we can offer a unique and interesting role within the investment management industry.
Customer Support Consultant
£18-23k, plus generous benefits
We're now looking for an additional member of our Customer Success team, primarily supporting financial advisers in their use of Defaqto Engage — a market-leading software solution that provides financial advisers with access to comprehensive data and functionality regarding financial products, platforms and funds.
As a Customer Support Consultant, you'll take calls and emails from customers using our products and services, ensuring all software, data and training issues are recorded, investigated, resolved and communicated in a professional manner within agreed timelines.
In addition to having a great telephone manner and email writing skills, you'll have previous experience of telephone and email customer support, ideally within a business-to-business environment, and you must be passionate about providing excellent support to customers. You'll have a high attention to detail and be able to follow processes and perform tasks in a structured well thought-out manner.
Whilst we'll obviously provide you with full training, you must have the ability to learn new software applications quickly and explain them to others clearly. A high level of IT literacy and good problem solving skills are vital. Previous experience in a software support role is highly desirable.
Ideally, you'll have at least a basic understanding of the financial services industry. Any knowledge of pensions, investments and the financial advice process would be very useful, but as long as you're keen to learn then we can teach you everything you need to know.
In return, we can offer an interesting and challenging role within a flexible and collaborative work environment, supporting a market-leading software product.
Reporting Analyst (SQL/Excel/VBA)
£24-32k, plus generous benefits
We've recently created a new role to support the delivery of a new customer offering for fund managers. In this role, you'll use your SQL skills to extract appropriate data from our systems, then your Excel and VBA skills to transform it into market analysis reports for presentation to our clients. You'll initially be working with existing processes, but will be expected to research and recommend ideas to improve these processes for the future.
You'll be based within our Application Support team and will also provide assistance with database-related support issues and reporting solutions.
To be considered for this role, you need to be able to demonstrate the following technical skills: Good MS SQL Server / T-SQL / Stored Procedures; Advanced Excel; At least basic VBA.
Any of these additional technical skills would be highly desirable, but could be learned on the job: Advanced VBA; Power BI, or equivalent; SSAS / SSRS / SSIS; Visual Studio.
In order to fulfill the role effectively, you'll need to develop a good working knowledge of investment products, platforms and funds, and the financial advice process. So an interest in financial services is essential.
You don't need to have lots of experience, but must be someone self-motivated, enthusiastic, inquisitive, proactive and determined to support the future growth of the company.
This is a great opportunity to join our hard working, intelligent and close knit technology team. You'll have access to a wealth of experience from its established members, where knowledge sharing is both expected and encouraged.
Insight Consultant (Pensions & Investments)
£40-55k, plus generous benefits
Defaqto's Insight & Consulting team delivers real value to providers and advisers across Wealth Management, Funds, Life & Protection, General Insurance and Banking. We take our unique insight and experience and bring clarity and understanding: to help product providers and fund managers make strategic decisions about products and their distribution; and to help advisers provide compliant advice whilst maximising the time spent with their clients.
We're currently seeking a skilled and knowledgeable individual to join our Wealth Management team as an Insight Consultant. You'll work within a team of specialists to manage the structure and content of our data tables, develop methodologies for our Star Ratings, conduct data analysis for panel research and write content for articles, publications and our website. Your main focus will be on pension and investment products, including platforms, but it would be helpful if you could also support on life and protection products.
To be considered for this role, you'll need to have significant experience within the UK financial services industry, together with a strong understanding of the wealth management market and detailed technical knowledge of pension and investment products, plus platforms. You should also have a good understanding of how the products and services in the wealth sector are distributed.
Candidates must possess the Diploma in Financial Planning, or an equivalent level 4 qualification.
Excellent data analysis, interpretation and critical thinking skills are also essential, together with a high level of IT literacy and at least intermediate (preferably advanced) knowledge of Excel, plus the ability to develop expert knowledge of internal and customer-facing software applications.
You'll also need excellent writing, presentation and influencing skills — articulating complex concepts in a clear, logical and structured manner that meets the needs of varying audiences. You must be able to build strong relationships and credibility with senior level client contacts and demonstrate strong consulting and project delivery skills.
We're looking for enthusiastic experts with a can-do approach who are looking to make a positive difference to the financial services industry, with the vision of helping consumers to make better informed decisions.
