Job vacancy: Critical Resource, Analyst

Shape the agenda on global resources, political risk & corporate responsibility

Position: Analyst

  • Are you interested in political risk, sustainability, corporate responsibility and development issues?
  • Are you entrepreneurial and analytical, and do you take pride in the quality of your work?
  • We are seeking a high-calibre analyst to join our dynamic, globally-influential company

Background: Critical Resource is an advisory firm specialising in political risk and sustainability issues, advising major companies and engaging with international stakeholders at the most senior levels. We have two main goals: to provide authoritative, independent analysis on such issues; and to assist clients to manage them in a strategic, far-sighted and responsible way. Our core team brings together high-level experience working for The Economist, the UN, McKinsey, the OECD, Chatham House and a number of major resource firms. Our senior advisory panel comprises Bill Emmott (the former editor of The Economist), Professor Paul Collier (the Oxford expert on natural resources and development) and Lord Browne (the former CEO of BP). 

The opportunity: A high-calibre Analyst is required to work as part of Critical Resource’s London-based core team. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to contribute and gain experience across a broad range of our work. Depending on the requirements, this may include tasks such as:

  • Supporting the team on client assignments, including research into socio-political issues around resource projects
  • Supporting business development, including preparation for meetings and proposals, and participating where appropriate in calls
  • Contributing to case studies, articles for our website and notes of interviews with international experts
  • Organizing and helping to manage high-level events

The successful candidate will also be expected to undertake a set of essential administrative tasks, e.g. helping to maintain our internal client database, scheduling calls and meetings, updating our website and other tasks.

Much of the work will be challenging and intellectually engaging, often with tight deadlines, and involve research on a globally important set of issues. This is an exciting opportunity for anyone who wants to gain practical experience in the sustainability / political risk field, in an environment which values excellence and which is highly supportive of employees’ learning and professional development. 

Location: Central London (nearest tube – Farringdon)

Time & availability required: Initial 12-month, full-time contract with a three-month probationary period, to start on 19 October 2015. Depending on the candidate’s performance and business conditions, the initial 12-month contract may be extended or made permanent.

Salary: £20,800 pa gross salary and up to £3,000 pa performance-related bonus

The ideal candidate will have:

Skills / qualifications

  • A strong academic record (equivalent of a high 2:1 or 1st, preferably with a master’s degree, from a leading university)
  • Excellent writing ability in English and strong communication skills
  • Experience of working within teams, as well as taking the initiative and working independently
  • Strong analytical and research skills; ability to quickly grasp and dissect complex issues
  • Good IT skills, including familiarity with PowerPoint & Excel
  • Foreign language skills useful, but not essential
  • Strong knowledge of (or interest in) natural resource industries will be helpful (not essential)

Personal attributes
