We’re Alfa. We help asset finance companies improve their business performance by implementing our software - Alfa Systems - and applying our wide-ranging experience of the industry. Blue-chip clients such as Bank of America, Barclays, Mercedes-Benz and Nordea have reaped the benefits of Alfa’s finest assets: our people. We are extremely proud of our track record of successful projects, a testament to the skills, experience and knowledge of our people who develop organically through the company from being a graduate joiner to a senior manager.
Alfa is established in the UK, US, Asia-Pacific and throughout Europe.
As well as working on projects based in London or the surrounding area,
you will sometimes be expected to work in European locations during the
working week. We also see a steady flow of UK consultants on secondment
further afield, so if this sounds like your kind of thing, we can make
that happen too.
Our junior software engineers and analysts are recruited from graduates of the highest calibre across all disciplines. We look for people who are bright, inquisitive, technically minded, and fun to work with. Induction and pre-project training is around 10 weeks so new joiners need to be ready to take on lots of learning from the start of their career. If you have a 2:1 or above and all As and Bs at A Level, we know you are bright. Add to that motivation to learn about technology and asset finance and you have a successful Alfa employee!
A good Alfa recruit has the ability to see an end goal, break down the steps to get there, and put in the effort to achieve it. Therefore, any hard-working and ambitious graduate can be successful as long as he or she has a logical mind, enjoys working as part of a team, has pride in their work, and sees their career immersed in the worlds of both technology and finance. With our ever-increasing geographic reach, knowledge of foreign languages is an added bonus, and we’ll even support you through learning a new one if you want to pursue extra studies.
We need our people to work hard but that doesn’t necessarily mean long hours. We only recruit people who we think will get on with each other, so the atmosphere is collaborative and friendly. If you are interested in activities outside of work, there are groups to join such as football, running or tennis. You will get to spend time with the whole organisation every couple of months at our company meetings which involve presentations in the morning and fun activities in the afternoon. Furthermore we usually have a trip overseas for our Annual Conference which is always something to look forward to!
