The Fintech Consultancy Group, or Fincog, specialises in fintech consulting. The company provides bespoke solutions in strategy consulting, market research, and commercial due diligence for a broad swathe of stakeholders in the financial services industry such as banks, payment service providers, wealth and asset managers, as well as investors, governments and larger fintech start-ups.
We help our clients to understand what is happening in the fintech market and obtain the right insights, develop sustainable fintech strategies and support the implementation of new solutions. For example, last year we supported our clients to create the strategic vision and launch of a new challenger bank, supported an online lender with the international growth strategy, performed commercial-due diligence on various fintech investments and provided bespoke research on the fintech market, amongst others.
Fincog boasts an expanding, multidisciplinary and experienced team of consultants. Our consultants have worked in other consulting firms such as Deloitte and The Boston Consulting Group, and in corporate strategy functions at banks. And throughout their career our consultants have gained in-depth knowledge across financial services, IT and innovation.
About the role
To support the growth of our company, Fincog is now hiring a Junior Consultant. As a junior consultant you will join a project team and work alongside an engagement manager. Your role will be to perform research, gather insights through in-depth analyses, and prepare client reports that summarize your findings in a structured and concise manner. To enhance the quality of our client delivery, you will have a good understanding of the client expectations and constructively support the engagement manager with your ideas.
In addition to working on client engagements, you will contribute to the growth of the company. You will help build the knowledge base around fintech, write research reports and blog articles. You will also have an active role in the business development activities. For example, you will attend conferences and other events, obtain potential clients, help prepare proposals and join sales meetings.
As we are a young company, you will have much freedom to shape the role to your interest and will be involved in a large variety of Fincog activities. For example, you could choose to focus more on certain topics (i.e. challenger banks, open banking etc.) and specific activities (i.e. HR, research, sales etc.), depending on your interests and experience.
What we are searching for
Do you want to learn everything in this field and are you excited to become a fintech expert? Do you have strong analytical skills and love solving strategic questions? And do you have some experience in consulting or investment banking?
As we are a strategy consulting firm specialised in fintech, we are mainly looking for two qualities. First of all, we are looking for a strong passion for financial services and fintech. For example, you are excited about new technology, have a bank account with a challenger bank and follow the latest fintech news. It is an advantage if you have experience in financial services and fintech, but not a requirement.
Second of all, we are looking for strong analytical skills and an eye for detail. For example, you give much attention to the quality of work, have strong ownership of your work and are driven to help our clients achieve the best possible results. Specifically we are looking for a university degree and 0-3 years of experience in consulting or investment banking.
