Introduction

You will get the unique opportunity to be part of an exciting journey, contributing to the growth of a highly regarded, rapidly growing Investor Relations consultancy. At Equitory, we specialise in outsourced IR. We do everything an internal IR team would do for our clients, but you gain experience across multiple companies in multiple sectors, working with highly regarded UK brands.

This role is a great opportunity for someone looking to develop their skills within a dynamic environment. As a Business Development and Marketing Associate, you will be identifying prospective clients, building relationships and scheduling meetings for the CEO and Directors. You will have the opportunity to work closely with senior team members to further your skills and a direct influence on the growth of the company.

Working Hours

The role can be flexible for up to 24 hours per week between Monday to Friday.

The role can be remote, but candidates must be able to travel to London for events a few times a year.

Reward

If being part of a hugely influential team was not enough, you will also receive a host of great benefits. As well as a competitive salary, bonus scheme and a range of learning and development opportunities, you will also participate in the Company’s flexible benefits programme which is equivalent to up to 7% of your gross wages, allowing 30 days’ holiday and enrolment in the pensions scheme.
