Principal, Family Office Portfolio Team

Luxury Goods - Investment Banking I Private Equity Profiles

Ref: DC53122

Central London
£200,000 + LTIP

Our client is a leading European Family Office that operates along similar lines to a mainstream private equity fund, but with a longer-term time horizon for investment. Working closely with management teams, the business has an exceptionally strong track record in growing businesses and in achieving substantial capital gains for its investors.


We are currently seeking to recruit a Principal into the Portfolio Operations team to work closely with the management team of a luxury goods portfolio company. This individual will support and influence across all areas of the business including the oversight of strategic, operational, financial, people and governance matters across the company. You will work with the portfolio company executive management team to ensure both routine and ad-hoc initiatives are progressed, monitored, and properly reported.


With a strong academic background, high degree of numeracy and an exceptional track record in your career to date, you may have followed a variety of career paths, but will probably have commenced your career with a leading investment bank in M&A and/or have gained extensive financial experience in a strategic role with a leading luxury goods company or in a similar portfolio role in private equity. Prior experience in a more hands on general management role in a smaller more entrepreneurial company, possibly with a Founder still involved, would also be of interest, again combined with a strong financial background.

Candidates should be used to personally “getting things done” and have the EQ, interpersonal skills, gravitas, presence, and credibility necessary to command the attention and respect of the portfolio business management team. This person must also be able to demonstrate strong business judgement including the ability to prepare and draw conclusions from data and commercial and financial analysis.


To apply to this role, please use the Apply button, or alternatively email your CV to David Craig: quoting reference DC53122.

Please note that due to the expected volume of applications, we will only be able to respond to those candidates whose experience matches the requirements of our client. We are sorry, but if you have not heard from us within the next ten days, please assume you have been unsuccessful on this occasion.
