Alaco has a vacancy for an Analyst with European languages.
An entry-level position, the successful candidate will receive intensive training in the tools and methodologies deployed across the spectrum of the intelligence gathering process. They will be expected to learn quickly and from the start would be responsible for presenting written reports of their findings, under the supervision of a case manager. A high level of inquisitiveness, critical thinking and attention to detail is required, as is the ability to order thoughts in a logical and precise manner, on paper and in discussion. 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.
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. Written reports will form most of your output and good writing skills are essential. Fluency in one or more European languages is sought for this role, with preference currently for Italian, French or Spanish.
If you would like to apply for this position, please send a CV, together with covering letter and current salary where applicable, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Applicants will be assessed via two interviews and a briefing test, all of which are held in London. Language skills are also likely to be tested. You muxt be 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.
