Job Description

IIX is the pioneer in impact investing and the global leader in sustainability. We have transformed the financial system so that women, the environment and underserved communities are finally given a value and a voice in the global market. Over the past decade, we have built the world’s largest crowdfunding platform for impact investing (Impact Partners), created innovative financial products such as the Women's Livelihood Bond and the Women’s Catalyst Fund, operated award-winning enterprise technical assistance programs such as IIX ACTS, and established an Impact Institute and Research & Advisory to build the sustainable investing market. To date, our work has spanned 53 countries, unlocked US$215 million of private-sector capital, and positively impacted over 87 million direct and household lives, and avoided over 1.2 million tons of carbon. The foundation of IIX's work is IIX Values, the world’s first impact verification solution for every organization, which effectively measures the social and environmental impact of an investment and gives value to the voices of the underserved. IIX has received numerous awards for its work including the Oslo Business for Peace Award, the ‘Nobel Prize for Business.’

You will WANT to instigate change.

Thus, as a successful team member, you should be:

Results-oriented: At IIX, we manage toward impact maximization and produce measurable returns. These results strengthen the ecosystem and transform existing realities by helping impact enterprises magnify their impact and scale.

Resourceful: While IIX is a seasoned stakeholder in the impact enterprise and impact investing space in Asia, we pride ourselves on creating new opportunities. Being resourceful and skilled at mobilizing human, financial and political resources to achieve IIX’s mission is a key part of the role.

About the IIX Management Traineeship Program:

1. Overview

As a new management trainee analyst, you will learn about our businesses, develop important relationships, and build career-enhancing skills. This program is open to all graduating students from 2019 to 2020, from any field of study, and is ideally suited to those with little or no work experience. While your discipline or major is not important, we’re looking for students with an outstanding record of academic achievement and an interest in changing the world by changing the financial markets.

A financial background is not necessary. Your area or major of concentration is less important to us than your potential. Whether you’ve distinguished yourself in economics or history, the next phase of your career will be shaped by your passion, energy and vision. We encourage you to apply, provided you come with an open mind to learn and share a strong commitment and professional drive in connecting the back streets with wall streets.

2. The management trainee Experience

We provide our new management trainees, who start as analysts, with the tools necessary for professional growth and career advancement. As a trainee, you will learn a great deal about the firm and how we do business and about the whole sector. You will gain the skills and knowledge necessary to support our businesses.

You will quickly become an integral member of the team with your own responsibilities. Regardless of which area or business you join, you will be working directly with internal and external clients side-by-side with the team members in our firm.

Upon joining IIX, you will receive formal training followed by department-specific training. You will also receive ongoing training, based on your specific skill needs and interests, to bolster your professional development through learning in the workplace. As a start, you may get hands on experience working on concepts like “Financial Modelling”, “Innovative Financial Structures”, “Professionalism”, “Problem Solving and Presentation Skills”.

Within the first year of your joining, you may also travel to the field to gain experience about our work in the development space in South and Southeast Asia. High-performing candidates may also get a chance to relocate to one of IIX’s overseas offices after a year.

About Growth and Innovation team: The Growth and Innovation team initiates and cultivates important relationships and initiatives that will result in strategic partnerships. The team supports the development of new products, services and projects that IIX is researching and/or test-launching. Outreach to build a local and regional network of ecosystem partners who will contribute and support the long-term sustainability of IEs will also be a critical role. Demonstrated project and process management skills are required in this role. The Growth and Innovation team focuses on marketing and developing IIX products and services that fulfill a need in the IE and impact investment community in Asia. The team also conducts research and analysis of the Impact enterprise sector in Asia. This includes countrywide, sector-specific or ecosystem-targeted research as well as broader policy perspectives. These research efforts culminate in published reports that are widely disseminated across the region.

Interested candidates can submit their application at with the title #SGunitedjobs. Due to the lean structure of the organization, please note all accepted trainee analysts will be working across teams as needed.
