Your Path at AlphaSights
Starting with the Associate role, the AlphaSights career path is a fast track to commercial leadership. Towards the end of your time as an Associate, you will start to gain exposure to the responsibilities associated with a Manager role at AlphaSights.
Leading a team
Our Managers ensure AlphaSights runs smoothly across geographies, time zones and language barriers. They help recruit, train, support and backstop Associates on their team, they work on challenging projects or when client demand calls for it, and they plan the months, quarters and the year ahead to ensure we have the team capacity to deliver on time and on budget.
Successful Managers may be elected to Vice President, or become AlphaSights Alumni. Alumni typically move on to managerial or commercial roles at successful companies or go to leading business schools such as Harvard Business School, IESE or London Business School.
Growing the business
AlphaSights’ business is the sum of businesses run by our Vice Presidents. Acting autonomously, our VPs develop and execute their own strategies for a given geographic region or market. Their remit includes winning new clients, growing existing accounts, recruiting and leading new team members, and firm-wide initiatives.
The typical path towards the VP role is via the Associate and Manager positions, but we do occasionally hire experienced professionals to build out their own business at the VP level.
“Negotiating my first contract renewal with a multimillion pound client was a watershed moment – I’ve now been through the process many times across different client types, handling objections and complex decision-making processes.”
