  • Interest in tech and startups and an understanding of how technology is transforming society and business
  • Previous experience conducting research on startups
  • Knowledge of Venture Capital as an asset class and the dynamics that drive deals
  • Comfort with uncertainty and the ability to change tack without experiencing discomfort (projects can arise/change focus at the last minute)
  • Willingness to build a business and define a role, this isn’t a plug and play position since it hasn’t been done before!
  • Flexibility, as Sifted is a young business, a willingness to get involved in all aspects of the business as needed is key
  • Whilst this role requires the ability to write clear, concise and informative briefings, it is not a journalistic role.
