Global Sector Strategist Dairy (Europe / US)
Are you looking for a way to create impact in strategic dialogues with our core F&A clients by applying your in-depth knowledge of the dairy sector? Do you have the ambition to join a world-renowned team in building the leading global F&A bank? If you answer is “yes”, this role might just be what you’re looking for!
Global Sector Strategist Dairy RaboResearch Food & Agribusiness Europe / US, 40 working hours per week
One of Rabobank’s eight focus F&A sectors, the dairy sector is highly dynamic, with changes in consumer preferences, environmental regulations, product innovations, and growing trade volumes shaping the sector. As Global Sector Strategist, you will have a deep understanding of the issues affecting the range of clients—from milk producers to multinational companies—in the dairy sector. You will use your knowledge to provide insights into the impacts and opportunities arising from trends, both in the sector and across other F&A sectors.
As Global Sector Strategist, you will be responsible for the research agenda and for maintaining research standards of Rabobank’s Dairy research team, which comprises 11 analysts globally. Your role will be that of a ‘thought leader’. In collaboration with colleagues and clients across the supply chain, you will develop ideas and themes for new thought-provoking and impactful research. You will coordinate delivery of research products, managing complex (sometimes cross-regional/cross-sectoral) research projects, taking ownership of the research process and its delivery to clients. As Global Sector Strategist, you will be actively involved in recruiting any new analysts in the Dairy team, and you will provide coaching to analysts to ensure they are able to meet our clients’ needs, evaluating their output and helping them to maintain the standards expected by clients.
You will be a convincing presenter, regularly presenting at high-level client meetings and international conferences, recognised internally and externally as an expert in your field.
Your constantly expanding professional network—internally in the bank and externally in the dairy industry—will be a major asset to building your profile, positioning yourself and Rabobank as a thought leader with industry bodies, the media, prospects, and clients.
You will cooperate closely with the Global Sector Head Dairy, taking an active role in setting the commercial agenda of the bank in the dairy sector, and identifying new themes and business opportunities.
When successful, you will collaborate and act as a ‘sparring partner’ with colleagues across Rabobank’s product groups, generating concepts and initiating new bankable ideas, translating industry trends to offer new banking products and services. Your knowledge will also be influential in providing valuable sector knowledge and views to the bank’s Risk & Portfolio Management departments.
