Visiting Associate (Financial Analysis for Venture and Growth Investments)

6-month term (full-time or part-time)

London, UK

“Cities are where the climate battle will largely be won or lost”

- UN Secretary-General António Guterres

2150 invests in climate tech start-ups globally to reimagine and reshape the Urban Stack. We are looking for a growth-minded and analytical Visiting Associate to join us for a six month term (that could lead to a permanent position.)

As a Visiting Associate, you will see the inside of a climate venture fund and contribute to dealflow, diligence, and the investment team. We imagine that you are smart, motivated – and very interested in working to help combat climate change. You may be completing an MBA, or simply frustrated with your role in a large, established financial institution.

The role

  • As part of the Investment team, assist in financial due diligence, financial modeling and company analysis
  • Meet with entrepreneurs to discuss their companies, and contribute throughout the due diligence process
  • Debate on final investment decisions with the whole investment team
  • Support the 2150 sustainability framework through analysis and reporting
  • Help with various internal topics (e.g., events, blog posts, research, and more…)

What we expect

  • 2-4 years of experience in an analytical role in private equity, investment banking, M&A, or equity research (no previous VC experience required)
  • Advanced knowledge in financial diligence and modeling is required, including the ability to comfortably create a 3 statement financial model and structure a DCF analysis.
  • An educational foundation in finance, maths, analytics, or a quantitative discipline
  • Previous experience in the climate sector is helpful – a passion for climate technology is essential
  • Strong English language skills, both verbal and writing
  • A right to work in the UK. We are unfortunately unable to offer internship visas.
  • Structure: you can manage yourself, take initiative and work on multiple projects at once
  • Problem solving: you like solving problems collaboratively and with an analytical mindset
  • Flexibility: you have the versatility to work with the team on a number of core problems and don’t mind taking on any task at a high pace
  • Curiosity: you are a curious person eager to learn and constantly develop
  • Care: you are committed to creating more equitable and inclusive outcomes, both in the workplace and in the work you do while being a team player
