Development and progression opportunities

Years 0-2 - Associate

Working on the commercial frontline from the start, you’ll develop the ability to deliver on projects, hit targets, grow accounts and drive forward your team’s objectives. While you will be hyper-responsive to client needs, you won’t find yourself burning the midnight oil or working weekends. As a high-growth, constantly changing organisation, we encourage you to take initiative and have lasting impact on the company.

Years 3-5 - Manager

Once you excel at commercial execution, you are set to develop into a versatile business leader managing your own team and a multi-million dollar book of business. To achieve this, you will develop B2B skills in client relations, end-to-end project management, communications, negotiation and sales - as well as internally-facing skills in recruiting, coaching and motivating other smart professionals around you.

Years 6+ - Vice President

Senior professionals who grow with AlphaSights become business principals, leading their own teams and running their own multi-million dollar business units on the AlphaSights platform. After consistent excellence and success on the commercial frontline, our top executives take on broad leadership positions by specialising in functional roles, spearheading new major projects, opening entirely new offices, or taking on firm-wide structural responsibilities.
