Objectives and Key Deliverables
Who we are:
We are a group of former management consultants who believe that it is time to bring a radically new approach to the way online corporate trainings are produced and delivered. That's why we are launching Primerli, an e-learning platform that aims to provide engaging and concise expert trainings, much like 101 courses on different industries. Our goal is simple: bring anyone up to speed on an industry in under an hour. We use professional production with 2-D animation and voice over artists to break down complex topics into simple and enjoyable trainings. Our primary target market is management consulting firms.
What we are looking for:
If you are...
...a former Project Leader/Management Consultant, ideally from a top tier consulting firm, and have some experience in financial institutions
...a natural storyteller or good at creative writing (you will be thinking about how you can explain a very complex finance topic to someone with no finance background while keeping it interesting)
...passionate/excited about learning and development
...interested in working in a startup environment...
...we would love the opportunity to know you and tell you more about the project.
What you will do:
The project manager will act as the "movie director" for the asset management training module.
The key deliverable will be a professionally produced, engaging online training module.
The day-to-day work will involve:
- Working closely with an industry expert to write a script for the online primer on asset management (about 3,000-4,000 words + 3-5 pages of handout)
- Working closely with a production company, overseeing the production process to make sure the final product is engaging
Location: The project can be done remotely from any time zone.
Duration: 4 weeks at 50% capacity (2 weeks work in total) with potential extension
Excellent spoken and written English, ideally native, is essential.
As part of your application for this role, please complete the following short assignment and include it in the "Proposed Project Deliverables" Section:
A friend asks you, “what does an asset class mean?". Can you please write a 200-400 word letter explaining what it is? Objective is to see how you take a complex finance subject and turn it into a concise, structured and engaging story. Feel free to choose a tone that you think will make it interesting (humor, using analogies etc. are all fair game). You can use this sample video on corporate banking products as a benchmark: https://ydraw.wistia.com/medias/g685aywl7z
