This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced consultant or operationally focused private equity/ infrastructure professional to join Macquarie Capital’s Infrastructure Investment and Development team to help manage and deliver the business plan in investments we have made (and will make) in the digital infra and value-add space.
Macquarie Capital’s Infrastructure Investment and Development team specialises in investing our own capital in smart, sustainable infrastructure projects, and companies. We sponsor the development of landmark projects that strengthen communities by investing in and creating digital, transport, energy and social infrastructure. We also offer flexible, partnership capital to infrastructure companies to help fund capital expenditure, business expansions and acquisitions. Examples include a 2m customer fibre company in Spain, a UK rural broadband business and retirement living projects.
As an asset management Vice President in our team, you will take a leading (and hands on) role in managing the investments made by Macquarie Capital as principal in infrastructure projects and companies across Europe. This will involve working closely with relevant senior management within the investment companies to monitor performance, help deliver the key strategic objectives in the business plan and ensure key performance indicators are tracked and met. You will also take the lead in reporting and communicating performance of the investments internally as we work towards an eventual successful exit of the investments. As part of this role, you will be expected to get involved in the due diligence of new investments and the sales process of investments that are ready for exit.
In order to be successful for this role, you will have an outstanding academic record and combine the knowledge obtained in your degree with your previous experience (5+ years) within the infrastructure, telecommunications, transport and/or energy (excluding oil and gas) sectors in either consulting (at a top tier firm), relevant corporate roles, principal investing, or an Infrastructure/ Private Equity Fund. There is a strong preference for candidates with experience of overseeing companies or projects that have been involved in the building of infrastructure and/ or spending of significant capex.
You will need to be self motivated, have a “can do” attitude and be able to ensure milestones are met and objectives achieved at pace, but sometimes in the absence of clear external deadlines. Good project management and people skills, as well as having an attention to detail is important.
