VC Associate @ Rooks Nest Ventures in London, England

Rooks Nest Ventures is a venture capital firm specialising in investments in the media, information and communications sectors.

We are looking for an Associate to assist with our deal sourcing and deal execution activities. We’re doing things quite differently from other VC firms and we’re looking for someone who loves the sound of that.

You will play a key role in:

  • Helping the team execute our investment strategy
  • Sourcing, evaluating and executing investment opportunities
  • Due diligence
  • Identifying and researching new investment target sectors
  • A wide range of analysis work including:
    • Market research and market sizing
    • Competitor research
    • Financial analysis
  • Assistance with special initiatives as and when they come up

Qualities we’re looking for:

  • A “roll your sleeves up” mentality: we are looking for goal-oriented yet flexible team players who are also more than comfortable working independently
  • A firm grasp of the business objectives of a seed VC firm
  • Appetite for all parts of the Associate VC role
  • High level of analytical ability (especially with numbers)
  • Demonstrable interest in technology, startups, and the sectors we specialise in: media, information and communications technology
  • A good verbal and written communicator
  • An innately creative thinker
  • A genuine interest in popular culture


  • At least 2-4 years of experience working in investment banking, equity research, consulting or venture capital
  • Startup experience will be viewed favourably but is not essential


  • Wide exposure to all parts of the firm and the business of venture capital
  • A great deal of responsibility from day one
