WELLINGTON MANAGEMENT

Wellington Management offers comprehensive investment management capabilities that span nearly all segments of the global capital markets. Our investment solutions, tailored to the unique return and risk objectives of institutional clients in more than 60 countries, draw on a robust body of proprietary research and a collaborative culture that encourages independent thought and healthy debate. As a private partnership, we believe our ownership structure fosters a long-term view that aligns our perspectives with those of our clients.

We are transitioning to a hybrid work environment where both remote work and the office play a critical role. Our vision is a future where all employees are empowered to work flexibly to drive the best outcomes for our clients. Flexible work is a mindset and a core value. Our employees are encouraged to work remotely two days a week as a standard practice and will have flexibility in terms of working hours.

Wellington has been investing in private markets since 2003, and the Firm launched its first dedicated private equity fund in 2014. Today, we manage approximately $5 billion in assets across four private equity funds and co-investment program launched in 2017. As part of the continued expansion of our alternative's capabilities, we have a multi-year plan to build a platform of private credit solutions across the risk spectrum, to meet the objectives of our global client base. We are seeking to recruit an Investment Specialist to join our Private Investments Team, which is responsible for oversight of certain Wellington-managed vehicles, with a focus on private credit. The Private Investment team is responsible for overseeing fund governance, product development, marketing, operations and servicing investors, as well as driving growth in our private's business.

The Private Credit Investment Specialist position is a multi-faceted role supporting the business management, investment oversight, and client interface of private credit products. The person who fills this position will work on a wide range of business and investment-related activities including performing analyses that ensure portfolio integrity by providing oversight of portfolio positioning, performance, and risk exposures. The individual will also contribute to the development of new investment strategies and client solutions, conduct market and competitor analysis, evaluate product overlap and capacity trends, and prepare white papers and presentation materials that serve to differentiate our portfolios. Over time the individual will participate in meetings with clients, prospects, and consultants to discuss our private credit strategies and platform. We are looking for candidates with an entrepreneurial spirit to contribute to building a new business line within our organization.

RESPONSIBILITIES

The Private Credit Investment Specialist's primary responsibilities will include the following:
