What could you learn from the world’s leading companies? How could that exposure help you grow?
GLG Associates are alumni of leading academic institutions and top-tier firms worldwide, with diverse backgrounds ranging from languages, humanities, business and medicine. You will gain access to incredible experience, insights and skills that will serve you during your career at GLG and beyond. Those who work here are ambitious, leading-edge thinkers. Working with us means being part of an entrepreneurial enterprise where teamwork is a key component to success. The program places an imperative on developing strong business acumen, time-management skills, and practical communication skills. Associates make an immediate impact by liaising with key opinion leaders and senior level industry executives. Our employees develop strong skills working in collaborative, team-led, goal-driven frameworks and learn to meet and surpass client service expectations consistently.
Client Service Associates are the engine of GLG. Associates in GLG Dublin work with professional service firms (management /strategy consulting, advisory firms, advertising and PR agencies, and market research firms) as clients. We work with clients across Europe from our Dublin office, and use our language skills (e.g. German, French, Italian, Swedish, Spanish, and other European languages) every day. Our Client Service Associate Programme involves a fast-paced progression through our global market-making operation:
- Junior Associates (first 6-9 months) focus on recruiting new experts into GLG’s global membership and learning the skills needed to be effective client service professionals.
- Senior Associates (next 12-18 months) work directly with clients to understand their needs and help them learn and make better decisions every day.
Once the programme is complete, GLGers have the option to pursue many career paths, including management opportunities and/or leadership on major accounts within client service, business development, content, and product. Top-performing associates can graduate from the programme in as little as 18 months.
For the Associate Programme, we seek strong communicators from all majors and diverse personal, academic, and professional backgrounds, who are persistent, team-oriented, inquisitive, and adaptable. We seek applicants with Bachelors or Master’s degrees from top-tier colleges and universities or equivalent work experience. These factors will strengthen an applicant’s candidacy:
