About the job

Make a difference as a Junior Investment Manager!

As a Junior Investment Manager, you help innovative sustainable companies obtain the necessary financing to realize their climate mission. You analyze the plans, identify risks and advise management on the steps needed to make a project financeable. At the same time, you and colleagues structure suitable financing, write investment proposals and document the transaction. You see the projects you are working on in development and over time, you can visit circular companies throughout the Netherlands (and beyond) that have achieved growth and impact thanks to your work.

You will be working for the Polestar Capital – Circular Debt Fund ( PCDF ). The PCDF wants to accelerate the transition to a circular economy by financing innovative companies that can really make a difference. We do this together with an enthusiastic team in which ideas and experiences are shared. In addition, you have a high degree of independence. Your ideas and input are valuable to the team and the projects we finance from day one.

Your role as Junior Investment Manager:

  • You assess innovative, circular business plans and market developments;
  • You are the first point of contact for credit applications for the entrepreneur, advisors and any other financiers and investors;
  • You supervise due diligence processes and carry out analyzes yourself;
  • You contribute to the structuring of the financing and draw up financing proposals;
  • You assist in developing the transaction documentation;
  • You supervise and analyze current financing;
  • You represent Polestar Capital at relevant events and build a relevant network.

Research shows that female candidates only apply if they meet 100% of the requirements, while male candidates already do so with 60%. So do you recognize yourself in this challenge, but are you hesitant about whether you meet all the requirements? Then we look forward to receiving your CV.

Working for the PCDF

The Polestar Capital – Circular Debt Fund (PCDF) is the largest European private debt fund that finances innovative circular companies that have the potential to sustainably change global value chains. The PCDF wants to accelerate the transition to a circular economy by financing innovative companies that are on the eve of scaling up. By providing these companies with a loan at an early stage, they can further roll out their game-changing invention to a commercial production facility.

This step is crucial to prove the technology and business model to the market, but is often too innovative for bank financing and too capital intensive for venture capital. By providing financing, we make circular projects possible and accelerate their realization, so that these projects can then scale up worldwide with proven technology. PCDF is active in various sectors, including plastics, (petro)chemical industry, bio-based materials, circular construction, textiles and metals.

How we make an impact here together

Polestar Capital is one of the European leaders when it comes to financing energy-related and circular projects. Based on our joint climate mission, we do everything we can every day to make an impact. Because there is work to be done in the world!

To help keep global warming below 1.5 degrees, it is high time to look at financing differently. With more ingenuity and decisiveness. In our opinion, money should no longer be an obstacle in the transition to a sustainable economy. But an accelerator!

We like to set the right example. By making the risks or complexity of sustainable projects manageable and investing with just a little more courage. In this way we seriously contribute to CO2 savings, waste reduction, energy solutions, the development of abiotic raw materials and at the same time we create (local) jobs.

In addition to the business investments that we manage for, among others, the Limburg Energy Fund (LEF) and the Polestar Capital – Circular Debt Fund (PCDF), we provide the Warmtefonds with the acceptance and management of loans to homeowners, homeowners' associations and schools to finance energy saving measures.

In a short time we have grown into a scale-up with more than 180 passionate 'game changers'. And we continue to grow nicely. A great moment to join and grow! Here you will find challenge, variety and the freedom to do your work your way. So join Polestar Capital quickly. Because there is work to be done in the world!

This is what we have to offer:

  • Salary between 5,000 euros and 6,500 euros per month;
  • Premium-free pension + a budget based on 4% of your salary to supplement your pension or use it for other purposes;
