Intelligence Analyst

Greyhawk is a corporate intelligence firm that supports lawyers during complex, high value and cross border disputes. Established in 2012, Greyhawk has rapidly built an established reputation among both general counsel and law firms. Greyhawk is ranked by Chambers for litigation support.

Greyhawk is currently seeking exceptional candidates for entry-level analyst positions.

These positions may appeal to trainees and NQs who are considering a move to a related field. They may also appeal to graduates who have considered a legal career. 

Intelligence analysts conduct research using a wide range of UK and international information sources, including foreign news media, company filings and specialist online information sources. Analysts review this information to provide succinct summaries and written reports. Analysts will also task and debrief Greyhawk’s network of in-country contributors.

Intelligence analysts support senior staff in:

  • Investigation of fraud, conflicts of interest and other wrongdoing.
  • Tracing of assets, including aircraft, boats, property and other assets.
  • Penetrating offshore company structures and demonstrating beneficial ownership.
  • Gathering intelligence to inform litigation strategy.
  • Due diligence investigations to identify financial crime and reputation risks. 

A mix of formal and informal training will be provided. While initially working under close supervision, analysts are expected to quickly demonstrate self-sufficiency so that they can play a key role in live investigations.

The positions are office based in the heart of London’s legal district.

Successful candidates should have:

  • Fluency to a native level in English and the ability to write succinct, professional reports.
  • A good working knowledge of one of the following languages: Russian, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, German or French. Candidates with two foreign languages are especially welcome. 
  • An innate curiosity to “dig deeper” and uncover hidden facts and patterns.
  • Tenacity and resilience to manage high workloads for senior and demanding clients. 
  • A willingness to work in a collaborative, non-hierarchical team in which good humour, mutual support and fair play are essential. 

Candidates should send their CV and a covering letter, explaining in 200-220 words why they are suitable for the role, to [email protected] before 30 May 2021.

The selection process will include a series of written tests (which can be completed remotely), and interviews (both remote and in person).

No acknowledgement will be sent on receipt of applications; but all candidates will receive a response after the deadline and once their application has been considered.
