We are looking to further improve the team’s ability to maximise our growth potential.

The successful candidate will be actively seeking out new sales opportunities through cold calling, networking and social media.

Success as a Growth Associate for Kwakol Markets requires all the basic qualities that make successful salespeople in any arena – self-confidence, an outgoing and engaging personality, initiative, a self-starter attitude, high motivation, goal-driven action, and persistence.
Like any salesperson, Growth Associates at Kwakol Markets must know their product. This requires them to have much of the same knowledge that products and services teams have. A potential investor might ask a Growth Associate to give them an analysis of a specific investment, and while the salesperson isn’t a researcher, analyst, or trader, they had better have a good answer ready. Therefore, being interested in pursuing a career in Kwakol’s growth team requires more than an interest in and talent for selling, but also a keen interest in, and understanding of, the investment instruments that they will be marketing to potential clients.
