Born in 1981, Bloomberg is a forward-looking company focused on building products and solutions that are needed for the 21st century. As a global information and technology company, we connect decision makers to a dynamic network of data, people and ideas - accurately delivering business and financial information, news and insights to customers around the world.

Ensuring that our employees are equipped with the right knowledge and skills about our business, products and how that fits into the wider Financial Services market, falls to our Financial Products Knowledge Group. They are responsible for building and delivering thoughtful programs that support the execution of Bloomberg strategy across Financial Products, and helps to give us a competitive edge.

This role, reporting to the Regional Leader, will be responsible for all matters related to developing and maintaining the skills and knowledge necessary to the success of our Bloomberg Financial Products employees in the region. This includes handling key relationships with senior managers to ensure the curriculum, content design and delivery align with key metrics and business initiatives. The role also includes working directly with all representatives throughout sales to educate, facilitate and coach around skill sets and knowledge that are essential to their success in this department.

  • A deep understanding of financial services workflows, either on the buy side or sell side

We'd love to see:
  • An overview understanding of Bloomberg's technology stack and how it works, ie how an OMS connects with an EMS
  • A drive to both gain and share knowledge, experience of sharing knowledge either in a class room or one to one coaching environment would be a strong advantage
  • A keen desire to lead and mentor people
