Associate (Summer 2023 Start)
Our Connections team is built on a single idea. To create a fast-growing, performance-driven product that helps fuel faster and smarter investment decisions.
We opened our office in Dallas in late 2022, and we’re in a temporary WeWork space (with all the benefits of private spaces for calls and happy hours) while we design our permanent home alongside architects for 2023. Located in the heart of Victory Park, you’re never short of events to keep you entertained all season, with easy commutes to all neighbourhoods across Dallas.
At Third Bridge, we’re groundbreakers. We’re gamechangers. We’re disruptors. We’re pioneers. Our work bridges the gap between research and knowledge, and our unique purpose is to connect investment clients to relevant experts and their human insights so they can make intelligent investment decisions.
But those connections can’t happen without the people with the tenacity and determination to find those experts. People who have the skills to build strong relationships with them. People who can communicate the needs of our clients credibly and effectively.
People just like you.
What you’ll do
As an Associate, you’ll spend much of your time on the phone, tracking down experts, building relationships with them and persuading them to speak to our clients. Ultimately, it’s about finding out whether they’re the right fit for our clients’ needs, and whether they know the answers to the questions our clients want to ask.
Then, you’ll set up consultations between our clients and the experts you find, and negotiate the terms of each meeting. All while continuing to develop and strengthen the relationships you create.
It’s exciting, fast-paced, deadline-driven, and results-oriented - and you’ll focus on delivering the highest standards of service as you take on multiple projects at once. But there’ll also be lots of opportunities to focus on yourself too, and we’ll support you with all the training, learning and development you need to progress and grow into your role - and beyond.
We're a business that supports the investment industry - so it makes sense that we also invest in our people, too.
What you’ll need
Of course, brilliant communication skills - especially using the phone - are essential.
We’re looking for strong academic credentials, or a proven background in a customer focused role. You’ll be looking to build your expertise in client engagement, influencing, negotiation, project management and stakeholder management - or you’ll be looking to build on your existing knowledge in these areas. But either way, you’ll need to be the kind of person who thrives in a hands-on, high-performance role where results matter.
Attention to detail and an ability to work under pressure are just as important, and you’ll more than feel at home in a culture that’s built on feedback, open communication, continuous learning and winning as a team.
Above all, you’ll have what it takes to exceed our clients’ expectations with every call you make, every consultation you arrange, and every contract you impact.
What’s in it for you
In return for the connections you make for us, we’ll connect you with a wide range of fantastic rewards and benefits, including:
● A base salary of $57,000
● Being able to earn bonus straight after your 1st month training period, and our bonus scheme is uncapped meaning we won’t limit your earning potential
