German Growth Equity Associate, Paris

Private Equity

Ref: JB51282

Paris, France

Our client is an international growth equity firm headquartered in Paris with a strong focus on ESG investments in areas like consumer, software, digital brands, as well as deep tech investments across industries. The firm targets companies across Europe with a stronger focus on regions like France, the UK, DACH, and the Nordics. This would be an opportunity to join a fund that is well-regarded for its culture and work alongside a driven, entrepreneurial and close-knit team.


Due to its strong potential pipeline of deals in the DACH region, the fund is currently looking to bolster its team with a German speaking Investment Associate who would be based in Paris. The Associate would be involved in aspects across the deal-cycle: from origination and deal execution, to portfolio management.

  • Team-player with a high level of drive and energy.
  • Previous exposure and/or strong interest in relevant sectors like TMT/Consumer/FinTech.
  • Strong academic background.
  • Good relation-building skills and comfortable engaging with clients.
  • Analytical thinking, strong commercial judgment and a well-developed sense of responsibility.
