The Summer Associate Role

What do you want the start of your career to look like? Do you seek an introduction to the world of business and exposure to a wide variety of industries? A role offering autonomy and measurable personal impact from day 1? A clear path towards leading your own team and managing blue-chip client relationships in two years’ time? 

If this resonates with you, read on.

AlphaSights is comprised of ambitious professionals committed to accelerating progress for our clients and helping them make more informed decisions. As a Summer Associate, you’ll act as the connection point between our clients and industry experts. Your role is to understand our clients’ knowledge gaps and identify experts with the knowledge that can address them. You’ll need to think quickly and critically, conduct high-level research on companies and industries, and identify the world’s best experts with the right experience and insights to address our clients’ questions. 

You’ll spend considerable time on phone and email reaching out to people and assessing whether they possess the knowledge our clients seek, before deciding whether to connect them with our clients. Working on several client requests at once, you’ll quickly develop effective project, client, communication, and time management skills. 

This is a fast-paced, commercial role with a clear focus on results and revenue generation, and Summer Associates who succeed at AlphaSights often embark on successful careers in commercial and operational leadership.
