WE RECRUIT PASSIONATE PEOPLE WHO WILL THRIVE IN OUR CREATIVE ENVIRONMENT AND CHALLENGE ACCEPTED VIEWS
The rotational programme incorporates the model of an immersive MBA spanning three years. It is designed to give graduates a comprehensive and challenging grounding within the business and a unique perspective on the private equity industry.
You will gain exposure to the deal team environment, investor relations, finance, legal and portfolio business finance. Analysts also spend one full year working within one or two portfolio businesses, which is key to understanding how our businesses operate and appreciating the challenges they face.
In addition you will also have the opportunity to work directly for Guy Hands during the Chief Investment Officer rotation.
At the end of the three year programme, the highest performers will have the opportunity to take on a permanent role within the business.
FURTHER INSIGHT FROM FORMER ANALYST JOINERS
“The best element of the graduate programme is its breadth of exposure. As an Analyst you will find yourself in a lot of completely different situations, covering every aspect of private equity. That provides you with the experience that you will not find in another graduate scheme.”
“Terra Firma has a very open culture and you can walk into a Managing Director’s office at any time. During discussions you are encouraged to participate and bring your ideas to the table. People are very open to what you have to say, even if you are at a junior level.”
“There is a low level of hierarchy here, and when you join the company you immediately interact with everyone, not only the level immediately above you. As an Analyst, you represent Terra Firma when you work together with the CEOs and CFOs from our portfolio companies, and you work directly together with our Managing Directors.”
“Terra Firma invests heavily in training and developing its people. In addition to being put through the CFA programme, I also had Arabic lessons in the office twice a week.”
WHAT ARE WE LOOKING FOR?
At Terra Firma, we are fully aware that it is our people who drive returns for our investors and we are committed to developing talent within the firm via our Analyst programme.
You will have an excellent academic track record and have, or be expecting, a 2:1 (or equivalent) from a leading university in the UK or overseas. We will expect you to be numerate, analytical and entrepreneurial, but also have a clear interest in business and the private equity industry. We value collaboration and therefore will also expect you to display a strong sense of teamwork.
We are able to offer work permit sponsorship and welcome applications from non-EU citizens who are currently studying in the UK. A relevant degree subject and an internship within an investment bank or strategic consultancy is an advantage.
Above all, we are looking for individuals who can demonstrate those qualities that reflect our core values of entrepreneurship, passion, creativity and tenacity.
