Financial Modelling Analyst

Whether it’s the school you attend, the train that gets you to work or the hospital where you’re taken care of when you’re sick, infrastructure impacts each of us every day and is the backbone of our communities and economy. Building infrastructure requires long term commitments, billions of dollars and the combined skills and expertise of hundreds, sometimes thousands, of people. Operis is proud of its contribution to this eco-system and the part we play in developing and shaping the communities, cities, provinces, and countries in which we live.

We make this contribution through our four complementary sets of services:

Our world-class financial modelling and model audit services give lenders, investors, project developers and project authorities the confidence that their numbers are right. Whether we are building a simple and clear Excel model to help our client better understand their project, or we are auditing another firm’s model to give lenders and equity investors reassurance, the client’s goal and completing the transaction is always at the forefront of our mind.
We are leading international, independent advisers in project finance with particular expertise in social infrastructure, transport, energy, renewable and digital projects. Our advisory service helps public and private sector clients create the best project structure in order to attract the finest pricing and the best global expertise.
Our training services have helped thousands of people build their careers over 25 years using our superior financial modelling methodology.
Our unique software, the Operis Analysis Kit (OAK) is one of the world’s leading specialist Excel software add-ins for developing, reviewing and interpreting large, complex spreadsheets.

Our grad recruitment program welcomes analysts to work across our dynamic advisory and modelling/model audit businesses, providing you with the best possible foundation on which to build your career.

What do we offer?

Headquartered in the UK, Operis was established in 1990, with our Toronto office opening in 2014. Now as a team of 60 people working collaboratively across both offices, we are committed to growing and developing further. ​

Our reputation as leading advisors in project finance hinges on the quality of our people (or OPeople as we like to call them).  We are dedicated to attracting, retaining, and developing open minded, enthusiastic, and driven leaders to build a diverse and talented team.  We want OPeople to be empowered to pursue their career objectives and encourage each other to pursue passions. We are committed to your rapid development and will support you every step of the way along your steep learning curve. Growth at Operis is limitless, with opportunities to take part in internal and external training, workshops, and other activities, including studying for professional qualifications such as the CFA.

Life at Operis

Our culture is inclusive, friendly, and collaborative. With your mentor to guide you, from the outset you will be immersed in real-life global projects across a variety of infrastructure, renewable and energy sectors. Being hands-on will help you to quickly develop your finance and analytical skills, while offering you a broad base of experience and knowledge. Your daily tasks might include building a financial model for a renewable energy project, completing the detailed analysis of a model and associated documentation to provide a client peace of mind on their numbers, or helping a client put together the capital required for a multi-billion-dollar transit project. There are ongoing opportunities to both learn and teach others – both formally and informally – and you will constantly find yourself challenged.

We work hard, but we also like to take time out and relax together. As well as weekly company lunches and regular after-work get-togethers, we enjoy an active program of socials, such as a board-game evenings, a night out at a ball game, throwing axes or escaping from a room somewhere.

We offer a holistic and competitive compensation package structured to help ensure the health and wellness of your mind, body, and bank account.

Could you be an OPerson?

Do you:

Love working with numbers and solving number puzzles?
Enjoy taking on difficult challenges and solving problems by finding creative solutions? If you don’t know the answer, do you dig until you find it?
Really pay attention to detail? Do you make sure you stay focused ensuring nothing falls through the cracks?
Enjoy thinking on your feet and learning new things in a fast-moving environment?
Communicate clearly and confidently in writing, over the phone and over video meetings? Additional languages to English (particularly French & Spanish) are an added bonus!
Volunteer for new challenges without waiting to be asked? Are you motivated and driven?
Thrive working as part of a team but also feel confident working independently?
If many of the answers are yes, and you have a numerical Bachelor or Masters degree with strong academic credentials, it would be great to hear from you. Prior knowledge of finance is not required, as we will provide you with training unmatched in its ability to turn new graduates into experts in modelling, advisory and project finance. We would love you to consider joining us and building your career with Operis.
