Jon Michel Executive Search is proud to be partnering with For Purpose Investment Partners (FPIP) as they seek to build out their Investment team further. FPIP is a not-for-profit social impact investment manager that was established to invest in projects and organisations that deliver strong and long-term positive social outcomes. FPIP are highly differentiated through their position at the intersection of business discipline and social impact, and are the capital partner of choice for social sector leaders and entrepreneurs.
Having reached a first close of $67 million for their Social Impact Fund 1, FPIP are now accelerating their growth and are looking for a values-aligned Associate to join their Investment team. The Associate will assist the team with a wide variety of tasks including management of existing investments, screening, due diligence and execution of new transactions, including financial modelling and market analysis, drafting investment committee papers, social impact measurement and investor relations activities. The Fund has an explicit focus on five sectors of significant social need where capital investment can create meaningful change outcomes that will generate appropriate commercial returns: Skills Education, Aged Care, Mental Health, Disability and Social Affordable Housing. Investments will be made across these sectors in both asset-backed and operating businesses, with a typical investment size of $10mn - $30mn.
Successful applicants will likely have 2-3 years’ experience within corporate finance, investing, asset management or corporate strategy / development. You will have gained experience of financial modelling and analysis and will have a detailed understanding of common valuation approaches and capital structures. You will display exceptional interpersonal skills and written and verbal communication and will be comfortable working as part of a small team with the ability to work autonomously. Critically, you are looking to work in an impact investing environment and can demonstrate personal interest in social initiatives. This role represents a highly unique opportunity to be part of a values-driven organisation that cares deeply about the impact their organisation and investments have on society, and will provide you with exposure to an enviable senior team and network that encompasses some of Australia’s most experienced, credentialed and respected investors and business minds. With offices in Sydney and Melbourne, FPIP has highly ambitious growth plans for the future. You will be joining a team at a pivotal time for the organisation and you will not only gain experience of investing, but will also be critically involved in growing an organisation that is helping to shape the social impact investing landscape in Australia.
