The Associate Role
You’ll act as the connection point between our clients and industry professionals. Your role is to understand the knowledge our clients need and identify the industry professionals with the expertise to meet those needs.
You’ll spend considerable time on the phone and email reaching out to people and assessing whether they possess the knowledge our clients seek.
Once you’ve found the right expert, you’ll connect them with our clients across a variety of formats (interviews, in-person meetings, surveys, etc.).
This is a fast-paced, sales-oriented role where you’ll work on several client requests at once. There is a clear focus on results and revenue generation leading to transferable skill development in project management, sales, negotiation, client relationship building, and more.
As part of our core service team (CST), you’ll be serving either Consulting, Private Equity, or Capital Market clients. Our CST members deeply understand their requests and knowledge needs and serve as clients’ strategic partners to ensure they’re well-equipped to leverage relevant perspectives across a wide variety of industries and regions.
Responsibilities include :
Working with either US or APAC based clients (geographical focus dependent upon team placement), where you’ll be managing multiple client requests simultaneously
Conducting high-level industry research to understand client requests
Searching extensively for industry professionals across internal databases and external recruiting platforms
Recruiting industry experts through warm and cold email / phone outreach, assessing their suitability for client needs
Delivering excellent client service through proactive follow-ups and strategic recommendations
Directly connecting industry experts with clients across service offerings (ie. 1 : 1 phone interviews, in-person meetings, etc.)
Partnering and collaborating with internal teams across AlphaSights’ US & APAC offices to drive positive client outcomes
