01.10.2019 | Arabic-speaking Analyst

Alaco has a vacancy for an experienced Arabic-speaking analyst.

Successful candidates will be expected to involve themselves in all aspects of investigative research and will be responsible for presenting written reports of their findings, under the supervision of a case manager.  A high level of inquisitiveness, critical thinking and attention to detail is required, as is the ability to order thoughts in a logical and precise manner, on paper and in discussion.  Although usually working as part of a team, Alaco’s analysts are often relied upon to drive research forward with minimal guidance, demonstrating the ability to solve problems and identify relevant lines of enquiry for themselves. 

The role is varied and interesting.  International politics and commerce are at the heart of what we do and applicants should be able to demonstrate a significant appreciation of both.  Written reports will form most of your output and good writing skills are essential.  As well as a native level of spoken and written English, the ability to read and work with published material in Arabic to a professional level is expected.  We are looking to hire candidates with some previous relevant experience, preferably two years in a similar or complementary role.

Applicants will be assessed via two interviews and a briefing test, all of which are held in London.  Language skills will also be tested.

If you would like to apply for this position, please send a CV, together with covering letter and current salary where applicable, to careers@alaco.com.  You must be able to work in the UK without sponsorship.

Due to the high volume of enquiries received, we are unfortunately only able to acknowledge those applications taken forward to interview.
