Job Description - Financial Analyst

Our client is a school with a global network of interconnected and interdependent campuses, serving more than 3,500 students from ages 2 to 18, in the world’s leading cities. As one school with many campuses, they provide transformative, world-focused learning experiences to students globally


  • Become the go-to expert in the markets you are responsible for: What are the dynamics of the educational landscape? What are the potential competitor schools and what are their value propositions compared to ours? What do parents deeply care about? What are the educational standards and how do they align with our mission? What is the school licensing process? What is our ability to recruit effective talent and what are compensations structures in that geography? What is happening on a macroeconomic level that could affect a potential campus?  How are the demographics of the market shifting?
  • Translate that market knowledge into data-based and nuanced financial assumptions:  What student enrollment can we expect? What are the drivers that will impact enrollment?  What is our pricing strategy in this market?  What are the key cost drivers? What capital investment will be required?

  • Build detailed and flexible financial models for each opportunity: What are expected returns? What specific assumptions are impactful to driving value? What are important scenarios that we should evaluate?
  • Evaluate specific real estate opportunities: How does each potential location change the financial profile of a campus? What are the key characteristics of our physical campus that are most important?  What does this imply for negotiations with potential partners and co-investors?
  • Develop greenlight recommendations to senior leaders: Is this an attractive market and does it support an investment from us? How do the various opportunities in that market stack up against each other? What are the key risks and how could we mitigate?
  • Post greenlight, work with the campus team and key functional leaders to ensure a successful launch: How should we set initial tuition? How do we refine compensation assumptions? How do we best finance the new campus investment?


  • You are energized by our mission and its opportunity for global impact on education.
  • Motivated to develop strong financial modeling skills – you enjoy critically examining data, developing solid logic flows and drawing conclusions from the numbers.
  • You thrive in the "gray area” – for you, ambiguous situations are opportunities to bring your keen analytical and problem-solving approach to create clarity and develop new solutions.
  • You love learning – you are intellectually curious, you always want to understand the "why” behind a situation and seek opportunities to further your growth.
  • You own your work – you ensure that nothing leaves your hands without your stamp of approval and you have great attention-to-detail and a high bar for quality.
  • You are a great teammate – you enjoy collaborating with, and learning from, others, and you prioritize what’s best for the team.
  • You can keep track of multiple, complex workstreams and achieve results.
  • Change doesn’t throw you off-balance - you are flexible, nimble and can pivot quickly when necessary.
  • You have excellent communication and presentation skills, conveying key information concisely and logically – your formal communications are "executive-ready”.
  • You have work experience in Finance, Accounting, Consulting or Education.
