Who are they looking for?

BlackRock has opportunities in a variety of business areas:

Portfolio Management

The Core Portfolio Management team provides support to the Fundamental Active Equity (FAE) Portfolio Management teams with specific responsibility for all cash management, portfolio construction, order implementation and operational and control functions within the FAE Investment process.

Fundamental Active Equities Core PM

This role is a supervisory position within the Fundamental Active Equities Core PM team, providing leadership support to the Core PM team leader and day to day supervision of processes and controls within the team.

The role requires strong attention to detail, fluency in various internal systems (to be learned) and Excel. Operating within a pre-established framework, following process and procedures but driving efficiencies and innovation within that framework. The role is best suited to someone analytical, organised and at ease with numbers.

This role also requires people management and leadership skills as you would be looking after other team members and be key in guiding them to develop their careers. This role is also about connecting various business partners internally to solve issues and drive efficiencies.

BlackRock thinks returners would be ideally placed to demonstrate those skills.

Active Equity Talent Lead

Active Equities (AE) is focused on building a culture which represents the values, norms and traditions of a diverse workforce, enhancing the way they think, interact and behave to drive investment performance across the Active Equity platform.

This role has people at its heart. You will be the key connector of BlackRock’s most talented equity investors to help and guide them develop their people skills and help their own teams develop their careers and aspirations.

HR background is preferred but not necessary if you have experience dealing with busy individuals and getting the best out of people and teams. Understanding and addressing individuals needs to help achieve a common objective is key here. BlackRock thinks returners with lateral experience dealing with people can bring a lot to this business.

Cash Management

This is a great opportunity to join the International Cash Management Group, which has a strong track record in delivering high quality and liquid investment solutions to clients. The group services a range of clients, including corporates, financial institutions and institutional investors, through a suite of pooled money market funds and tailored separately managed liquidity and short duration accounts. Their investment philosophy is built on a risk-controlled framework, featuring careful analysis of credit, macroeconomic trends and relative value opportunities, which ultimately produce investment returns on a risk adjusted basis.

The Investment team is currently looking for a Dollar Portfolio Manager to join the global team. The successful candidate will contribute to strategy setting for the International Dollar accounts, trade in the offshore Dollar markets and work with the product strategy and client teams in support of the client base.
