This will include the preparation of investment cash-flows for internal purposes and client presentations.

  • MRICS and/or ICF qualified, recently qualified up to Associate level
  • Brokerage/sales orientated
  • Attention to detail needed to undertake cashflows/valuations
  • Confident, people person, ambitious
  • A good working knowledge of Excel and Word

Following the 2017 acquisition of Strutt & Parker by BNP Paribas, one of the world’s largest banks, Strutt & Parker, and its forestry division John Clegg & Co, is at a very exciting stage of its evolution as a business.
