• Growth opportunities. We support our people in continuous learning and development.
• Agile environment. We are committed to providing a work environment that balances the needs of our clients; the needs of our teams; and the personal needs, commitments, and interests of our people.
• Philanthropy. Our people can contribute to society in a unique and personal way, through various philanthropy opportunities and programmes.

What will your responsibilities be?
• Proactively communicating with institutional and retail clients and other stakeholders (e.g., providing information about the Orbis Funds, participating in client onboarding processes including Know-Your-Client / Anti-Money Laundering, and updating the client database and activity records).
• Building relationships and working closely with other global client and operations teams and business units to effectively service our clients.
• Owning key responsibilities related to the transaction cycle of the Orbis Funds. This includes verifying client transactions and validating sensitive client information.
• Leading impactful projects and initiatives to develop pragmatic improvements and innovative solutions by working collaboratively with our dedicated technology team.

• Excellent written and oral communication skills with the ability to articulate clearly and empathetically with clients.
• Strong analytical and investigative skills accompanied with the ability to think independently and critically to solve problems.
• Outstanding interpersonal skills enabling you to work well in a team environment and to build strong relationships with different stakeholders.

Your qualifications & experience
• Undergraduate degree with a strong academic record

The Company

We are a global firm with offices across eight countries, over 400 employees and more than $30 billion in assets under management. But those numbers don’t define Orbis. It’s our values, how we do things day-by-day, and how we add value for our clients that define us. Our investment philosophy is fundamental, long-term and contrarian. As contrarian investors, we aim to take a different perspective, and this filters into everything we do. To invest differently, you need to think differently. This is encouraged by having teams of people with different backgrounds, experiences and ways of thinking.
