Corporate Trainee

SKAGEN Funds seeks a candidate for the Corporate Trainee Programme

As part of our effort to attract and develop talented people for careers in asset management, SKAGEN Funds has established a one-year Corporate Trainee Programme.

We are looking for candidates who are positive, curious and have a “hunger-for knowledge” personality and eager to work hard. You will not only greatly benefit for your own learning, but also be a positive contributor to SKAGEN’s mission.

The aim of the programme is to give graduate students a hands-on and accelerated introduction into global financial markets; and help the right candidate develop the skills required to become a part of SKAGEN. As a trainee you will be assigned to different projects in SKAGEN and contribute as a part of the team.

The focus of the programme the first eight months will revolve around our investment activities. The following modules will focus on our client advisory activities and important support functions.

Some of your tasks within the investment activities module will involve taking part in idea generation, independent equity analysis, ESG analysis, and documentation as well as supporting the funds’ external communications.

Within the client advisory and support modules, you may be exposed to servicing and advising clients, building SKAGENs brand through marketing and communication and supporting legal, financial, project and business development deliveries.

For each module a mentor within the team will be a support and resource to you. You will also be assigned a Buddy who will help with your integration into SKAGEN culture.

What we offer:
• Training and experience in all disciplines relevant to anyone wishing to seek a career within the asset management industry.
• Personal mentoring and coaching through daily work and check-in meetings.
• An opportunity to work within a contrarian and non-hierarchical organisation where your work and ideas can make an impact from day one.

What we are looking for:

Enthusiastic and intellectually curious
A genuine interest in global markets and Finance
Strong analytical skills
Eager to take initiative
Ability to both work and think independently
Highly adaptable and motivated to work in high intensity departments
Solid interpersonal and communication skills
Cultural awareness and international exposure

We would expect candidates to hold a Master’s degree with strong academic credentials.

The position will be located in Stavanger, Norway. Fluency in a Scandinavian language is an advantage.
