What can you expect
Jefferies’ lean deal team structure affords Analysts the opportunity to work closely with senior bankers on pitches and live deals. Senior bankers’ client solutions, advice, and ultimately their success, draws entirely on the integrity of our analyst’s work. Tasks go well beyond performing fundamental analysis and research into companies and markets. You are expected to understand the market implications, identify key industry and product trends and provide key insight. Analysts add value to the team from day one. They are expected to think creatively and pursue their projects with excellence, a collaborative spirit, and with the highest levels of integrity.
Analyst responsibilities may include, but are not limited to:
- Performing financial valuation, discounted cash flow and multiples-based analyses
- Building and using financial models
- Preparing pitch books and live deal materials, such as offering memorandums and prospectuses
- Conducting industry and product research
- Analyzing detailed corporate and financial information
- Participating in the execution of financings and M&A transactions
What we look for in a candidate
We look for candidates who are eager to make an impact by doing real, hands-on work and participate on active deal teams. Successful Jefferies’ Analysts will be able to multitask and manage a variety of projects simultaneously. Candidates must demonstrate professionalism and client management skills together with strong technical, written, and verbal communication skills. The work is fast paced, intense and intellectually stimulating. The ability to work under pressure and tight deadlines, be adaptable and work both independently and as part of a team are essential traits of a successful candidate. You should have a strong academic background and a four-year Bachelor’s degree or equivalent. Although a background in accounting or finance is helpful, we hire analysts who have studied a variety of disciplines.
