Associate Analyst - Finalta, McKinsey Solutions, London


In order for you to be considered for the role, you must have a good, numerate degree from a top tier university and be able to demonstrate first-class quantitative analytical skills and an interest in financial services consulting. Excellent spoken and written English is essential.

Please only apply if you meet all of the above criteria, and all candidates must be eligible to work within the UK.

We believe in developing our staff and provide excellent support and training. Finalta aims to be an enjoyable, rewarding and stimulating place to work. We work hard to create a positive work-life balance, offering the chance to work in an entrepreneurial, small team environment in Central London, and to help to shape our fast-growing company.

Finalta are looking for candidates who can start immediately, and also those due to graduate this year.

If you have a preference on the banking or Telcom team, please confirm this to us.

Who You'll Work With

Finalta is the global leader in retail banking benchmarking and best practice analysis, working with over 250 retail banks in more than 50 countries. Clients use our services to provide an objective assessment of performance against peers, quantify opportunities for improvement, and track their fulfilment over time. We are a wholly owned subsidiary of McKinsey & Company; however, we operate independently under our own brand and management team.

2016 marks an exciting time at Finalta as we expand into the Telcom industry. Working in this team will give you an opportunity to really make a difference by working in a small, entrepreneurial environment and playing a significant role in shaping and growing our business in a new industry.

We currently have positions available in both our banking and Telcom team. Please do let us know if you prefer either position. Both can offer you an exciting opportunity for career development, where effective leadership and achievement are quickly recognized and rewarded.

What You'll Do

We are expanding globally, and now have offices in Chicago, Miami, Singapore, London and Budapest. As a rapidly growing organisation, we can offer you the chance to work in an entrepreneurial, dynamic environment and an exciting opportunity for career development, as effective leadership and achievement are quickly recognized and rewarded.

You will be given high levels of responsibility from the start, liaising with our clients to conduct research, and performing quantitative analysis of their data. You will then work with your project team to strategically evaluate the results and create recommendations - preparing the final report, presentations and other deliverables for your clients.

As such, the role requires:

  • Superb quantitative analytical capabilities
  • Excellent writing skills
  • Good interpersonal and client-management skills
  • The ability to manage your time to produce high-quality work to deadlines
  • Knowledge of, and interest in, retail banking

You will be based in Central London but will have the opportunity to visit clients in a variety of European countries (note that this role does not involve long periods working on a single client site).
