WELLINGTON MANAGEMENT

Wellington Management offers comprehensive investment management capabilities that span nearly all segments of the global capital markets. Our investment solutions, tailored to the unique return and risk objectives of institutional clients in more than 50 countries, draw on a robust body of proprietary research and a collaborative culture that encourages independent thought and healthy debate. As a private partnership, we believe our ownership structure fosters a long-term view that aligns our perspectives with those of our clients.

POSITION

Tracing our roots to 1928, Wellington Management is one of the world's largest independent investment management firms. With over US$1 trillion in assets under management, we serve as a trusted adviser to institutional clients and mutual fund sponsors in over 50 countries. Our innovative investment solutions are built on the strength of proprietary, independent research and span nearly all segments of the global capital markets, including equity, fixed income, multi-asset, and alternative strategies. As a private partnership whose sole business is investment management, our long-term views and interests are aligned with those of our clients. We are committed to attracting a talented and diverse workforce, and to fostering an open, collaborative culture of inclusivity because we believe multiple perspectives lead to more informed investment and business decisions. As an Equal Opportunity Employer, we welcome people with diverse life experiences, fresh ideas, and specialized subject-matter expertise.

ROLE

We are currently seeking to recruit an experienced Industrials Analyst to join our Global Industry Research (GIR) group. This individual will be a key member of Wellington's Cyclicals team, and will conduct research and make recommendations on stocks in the global Industrials ecosystem, including, but not limited to, Electrical Equipment, Industrial Conglomerates and Machinery. The role of a Global Industry Analyst (GIA) at Wellington is to develop a deep understanding of companies across an industry, and the opportunities and risks associated with investing in them, in order to recommend them for inclusion in client portfolios. He/she is expected to develop a thorough grasp of the competitive, operational, financial, and regulatory dynamics which the companies under coverage are subject to. This research serves as the foundation for the GIA to conduct differentiated, long term, bottom up, fundamental analysis on stocks, identify mis-pricing or valuation discrepancies, and communicate his or her findings to Portfolio Managers globally who manage long-only and and hedge fund portfolios on behalf of our clients. Over time, we expect the majority of GIAs to take on portfolio management responsibilities for their  industry, as part of the firm's Research portfolios. This individual will preferably be based in London.

QUALIFICATIONS

We are seeking an Analyst who is passionate about the markets, and who has a demonstrated record of successful stock-picking recommendations. GIAs must have a fundamental, research oriented, bottom up approach, supported by a strong investment philosophy and process. The successful candidate will enjoy acting as an individual contributor within a highly collaborative investment culture. He/she will thrive by building strong relationships with colleagues and company management teams, by communicating action oriented investment opinions clearly and with conviction, and by enjoying an open investment dialogue and respectful debate with others at the firm. The ability to take risks and hold non-consensus investment views is critical, as is maintaining the humility to admit mistakes and course correct as new information comes to light. The role requires striking a good balance of intellectual curiosity, and the ability to make decisions with incomplete information.

Additional qualifications and individual characteristics are likely to include:

* The highest standards of personal and professional integrity and ethics;

* A minimum of 10 years' relevant investment research experience (experience within a Buy side environment is strongly preferred);

* Demonstrable knowledge of the Industrials sectors (ideally globally), and companies within them;

* Strong academic background, ideally including an MBA and/or CFA;

* History of professional achievement;

* Portfolio management experience is advantageous, ideally within both long only and long/short approaches.

Please note that we are only able to respond to successful applicants.
