About Working at MJ Hudson
 

Working at MJ Hudson

MJ Hudson is a great place to start and build an incredible career in one of the world’s most dynamic industries.

From the moment you join the team (actually, even before you join) you’ll see what makes us different. Where some firms seem to spend most of their time talking about what they did in the distant past, we prefer to put our energy into what’s next, constantly assessing and innovating to make asset management more open, accessible and sustainable – fit for today and tomorrow.

If I had to describe what makes MJ Hudson a special place to work, I would say it is the ability to be dynamic and innovative. Since day one, I felt empowered to get going and achieve. To be honest, it’s hard to believe where my team has gotten in just over a year at MJ Hudson. We doubled in size, grew business, developed our knowledge and confidence, and improved the quality of services and processes. I am incredibly proud of our achievements, but the road to success doesn’t stop here. We have plenty more new goals to achieve.
Vasco Vicini, Divisional Director of AR Solutions – Regulatory Solutions
I love the freedom and responsibility you get working at MJ Hudson, marking the true entrepreneurial spirit of the firm. I am located in the Amsterdam office, but I work closely with colleagues and teams based across Europe and North America. I feel lucky to be surrounded, physically and virtually, by incredibly talented and driven people, all aiming to make the world a better place. We have experienced incredible growth in the last two years and, while this growth certainly also has its challenges, I feel mostly extremely lucky to work in a field where the opportunities are endless.
Sebastiaan Greeven, Manager – ESG and Sustainability
In this role, the projects never fail to provide variety: one week I could be producing fundraising materials for a film fund, and the next I am researching work-life balance sentiments in the private markets. Over these past 6+ years, I have seen MJ Hudson in three different offices, and have enjoyed watching the firm on its journey from a boutique law firm to a one stop shop service provider to the asset management industry, whilst supporting my own professional growth and development. Having joined a small marketing team in 2015, it has been great to watch this progress, acquiring quality people along the way, and becoming a larger force that goes above and beyond with every project.
Daniel Daines, Senior Analyst – IR and Marketing Solutions
I feel exceptionally lucky to have started my career at MJ Hudson, particularly within the graduate rotation scheme. I have been able to build a strong foundation and develop a variety of transferable skills; the experience has been fundamental to my performance in my current role. I have absorbed knowledge from a vast number of unique individuals, with a wide spanning set of skills and deep expertise. I would really encourage graduates to embark on the rotation scheme as I truly believe it is an excellent kickstart to your career, and MJ Hudson is a really enjoyable place to be. I am excited to continue my journey at MJ Hudson and look forward to what the team can achieve together.

Our diversity commitment

At MJ Hudson, we recognise that diversity makes for good business as it stimulates more ideas, opinions and perspectives.

We are committed to the maintenance of a professional inclusive environment that recruits, retains, develops, remunerates, and promotes all of our people regardless of gender, race, nationality, marital status, sexual orientation, age, religion or beliefs or disability. In short, we embrace diversity as fundamental to the promotion of our company’s values and recognise that diversity and inclusion has an invaluable influence on MJ Hudson and all that we aspire to be.

We have a strategy in place that aims to help recruit, retain, coach and mentor women into senior management positions. We recognise that working to keep the best talent, which includes supporting women through the executive pipeline, is the best way that we can retain our market competitiveness. We are also working with universities on graduate recruitment to try to recruit more females to the alternative asset industry in the first place.

In line with this, we seek to support our female employees as much as possible by encouraging shared parental leave and offering company pay for maternity leave for up to 26 weeks and full pay for paternity leave for qualifying employees.

We actively encourage and support female employees back into work by offering phased return schemes for new mothers, as well as mentoring programmes for those who wish to participate. We also offer flexible working practices to staff, such as working from home and flexi-hours.

Recharge plan

MJ Hudson is leading the way in developing and maintaining employee health and wellbeing. Recharge is a programme set up by MJ Hudson to promote the physical and mental wellbeing of our staff.

Health is the greatest possession. Contentment is the greatest treasure. Confidence is the greatest friend.
Lao Tzu

Recharge is a programme to promote the physical and mental wellbeing of our team members.

MJ Hudson is a high achieving, high standards business. You work hard and a lot is expected of you. We spend a lot of time and effort investing in our people, to ensure that we produce the best team possible. We recognise that we, along with our clients, have high expectations which at times can be highly demanding resulting in large volumes of work and tight deadlines. We want the best out of our team ensuring that each of you develop good working practices early on in your career. This will help prevent burn out in both a physical and mental sense. You are unable to work effectively if your mind and body is unhealthy.

With this in mind, we have implemented the ‘Recharge’ Plan. The objectives of this are threefold.

  • To promote a healthy and happy workforce with a good work/life balance.
  • To encourage every team member to partake in at least one element of the plan.
  • The plan should be constantly evolving, with new elements being added through a collaborative approach.

We have implemented a number of elements to the plan over the years, the current elements of which are detailed below:

 

Boot Camp

Regular physical activity can reduce the risk of many medical conditions. MJ Hudson takes part in a weekly ‘Boot Camp’ exercise routine.

Mindfulness

Regular practice of mindfulness has been proven to have a variety of benefits such as improving focus and creativity, as well as helping to alleviate stress. MJ Hudson hosts fortnightly meditation sessions within the office.

Catch – 2&20 Book Club

Reading for pleasure is known to reduce stress, improve memory and enhance focus. To stimulate the mind, encourage debate, fuel curiosity and analyse books, Catch-2&20 meet once a month to discuss a book chosen by the team.

Running Club

Regular physical activity can reduce the risk of many medical conditions. To this end, MJ Hudson holds an informal running club on a weekly basis.

Yoga

Dynamic yoga classes are a fast-paced workout and a great way to keep in shape. Benefits include improved external health, greatly improved internal health, the ability to better manage stress and greater energy and focus. MJ Hudson hosts weekly yoga sessions within the office.

Time Out Lunch

Lunch, learn and inspire. Our monthly lunch with a specially chosen TED talk provides an opportunity to share opinions, ideas and thoughts on things you wouldn’t normally discuss with your colleagues.

Switching Off Emails

If you have a scheduled holiday for more than 4 days, you have the option to switch off your emails from your device for your holiday (so that you cannot send or receive new emails).

4-6-Zero

If you have been with the Company for four years, you are entitled to request a six week for zero pay sabbatical. Sabbaticals often provide the kind of experience that broadens an individual’s perspectives and fosters innovation.

We offer a variety of different graduate and training schemes. See below for further details
