The world of banking is home to some of the highest paying jobs around, and private equity experts are a prime example. At its simplest, Private Equity experts acquire or invest in private businesses with the aim to improve their value over time. In practice, the private equity space is extremely complex, consisting of countless rules and regulations, structures, extensive jargon, and highly specialised professionals.
It’s hard to get started in the industry, especially since previous experience in the finance industry is almost always a requirement. From account management and fundraising to financial modelling and business analysis, private equity professionals boast incredibly robust and versatile skillsets. According to Indeed, the average private equity associate role salary in London (the entry level that many private equity professionals begin their careers at) is £68,489 a year, with the VP wage raising to £120,769.
Alongside the high base salary, private equity jobs usually benefit from great bonuses based on their performance, usually in the form of commissions as a result of securing deals. Private equity presents some truly narrow career paths, and as a result, hiring criteria is often extensive (and rigid). For those of you looking to take on private equity experts, it’s important to make sure you secure the right candidate the first time. Whether you’re looking for a deal-maker, a fundraiser, an analyst, or someone that can handle all of the above, it’s worth staying selective.

Manchester has developed a name for itself as a hub of innovation. Along with some of the best bands to ever grace the planet, Manchester is home to a thriving a finance sector, a growing legal industry, and a bustling creative hotspot, boasting some of the biggest brands found anywhere. Here at Broadgate, we love being close to the centre of the action, which is one of the many reasons why we decided to open our Manchester office back in 2018. Since then, we’ve been lucky enough to provide staffing solutions for hundreds of companies, enabling us to make incredible progress on our mission to build diversity, create inclusion, and encourage workplace innovation.

Turning to a third-recruitment agency is a great way to save yourself a huge amount of time and money throughout the process, and it grants you access to a much wider talent pool.
The team at Broadgate specialise in delivering staffing solutions in Cybersecurity, Finance, Accounting and Audit, Risk and Analytics, Transformation and Change, Compliance, Legal, and Financial Crime, and other areas relating to business protection and business enablement. We’re not like other Manchester recruitment agencies – we’re a people-before-profit operation that takes a DEIB-led approach to hiring (diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging).
By placing people at the heart of every decision, we’re able to access talent from the widest available candidate pool. Many internal hiring managers will rely solely on their personal network to source a new hire, and this effectively limits narrows the search. Narrow can be good, but not when it lacks the depth needed to fill technical roles. Our expert consultants have a wealth of industry knowledge, and when this is combined with a granular understanding of the job market in Manchester, we can expand the search in the right direction, enabling us to get it right the first time.
