One of the most attractive things about working at BMI Research is the opportunity for career development. We put a lot of focus on training and developing our staff.
In the Research team, we like to hire enthusiastic and passionate employees who want to build extraordinary careers in country risk and industry research. Analysts who join BMI go through a rigorous training programme, which consists of hands-on learning, presentations and mentorship. Each track offers a unique career experience and a compelling mix of work and training opportunities and structure for career progression.
After a year or two as a Senior Analyst, your career path can develop in slightly different directions. You could, for example, remain a Senior Analyst focusing on a particular area of research, in which you become the in-house specialist. Alternatively, you could move into a role whereby you engage in more strategic analysis around your key areas of research. You also could become a Global Economist, whereby you would sit on the Global Economics Team, which helps to formulate our global economic strategy. Lastly, your role could evolve into a more managerial position, either as a deputy head of a team or as a team manager.
On the Sales team, we hire people from different backgrounds, skill sets and at different stages of a person's career. The most important thing for us is that you like our research and that you can articulate its value to prospects and clients.
Whether you join the Sales or the Research team, there is a rigorous and structured training programme in place that helps to set our employees up for success. The first few weeks are intense and the learning curve never stops. That's the way we like it.
The research training programme combines hands on training with one-on-one seminars. We host weekly seminars for the whole research team where senior analysts and managers debate topical issues and conduct training sessions around economics, politics, industry analysis and finance, as well as soft skills such as client engagement and presentations/public speaking.
Here is a sample of the type of training schedule a new starter would have to go through. After six months, each analyst has to pass an assessment that consists of a strategic piece of analysis as well as a five-minute presentation to the team manager.
The sales training programme combines hands-on training with one-on-one seminars. The training sessions take you through our clients, why they subscribe, key strategies to engage clients as well as core sales skills. These are conducted by sales trainers and will help each sales person hit the ground running.
Here is a sample of the type of training schedule a new starter would encounter. You can see it is a rigorous combination of soft and hard sales training mixed with value proposition training.
