03.05.2017 | Senior Analyst with Russian, Arabic, Hebrew or Italian

Alaco is accepting applications for the role of Senior Analyst from speakers of Russian, Arabic, Hebrew or Italian with a track record of at least two years as an analyst at a top-tier business intelligence firm or a closely-related field. Demonstrable experience of researching and writing reports to a high level is essential.

The successful candidate will be expected to engage with all aspects of investigative work across the globe as a senior member of our existing analyst team.  In addition to conducting research and presenting written reports of findings under the supervision of case managers, responsibilities will include mentoring and coaching more junior staff and providing support on issues such as budgeting and business development; setting case strategy; developing and liaising with sources; oversight of research and controlling the quality of reports.  Although usually working as part of a team, Alaco’s analysts are often relied upon to drive research forward with minimal guidance, demonstrating the ability to solve problems and identify relevant lines of enquiry for themselves: this is particularly true of senior analysts.

The role is varied and interesting.  International politics and commerce are at the heart of what we do and applicants should be able to demonstrate a significant appreciation of both.  In addition to speaking and writing English to a native standard, proficiency to at least degree level in Russian, Arabic, Hebrew or Italian is essential.   

Candidates will be assessed via two interviews and a briefing test, all of which are held in London.  Relevant language skills are also likely to be tested. 

CVs should be forwarded to careers@alaco.com.  The closing date for submissions is 4th June 2017.  It is crucial that applicants are able to work in the UK without sponsorship.

Due to the high volume of enquiries received, we are unfortunately only able to acknowledge those applications taken forward to interview.
