From our state-of-the-art offices in nine major world cities, we connect business leaders seeking knowledge with the experts who possess it. We’re one of the fastest-growing global companies, employing 1500+ colleagues of 60+ nationalities.
What we do
We operate at the heart of the global knowledge economy, providing a suite of knowledge-on-demand services to investment funds, consultancies, Fortune 500 companies and nonprofits.

Client Service Associate Role
As a client service associate, you’ll have a clear focus on client service and revenue generation. You’ll be the connection point between our clients and industry experts. After initial training at our New Joiner Academy and on the desk, you’ll start fielding incoming briefs from the clients assigned to you. You’ll spend a large portion of your time on the phone and email, identifying the best experts to suit your clients’ needs. Once you’ve found the right expert, you’ll connect them with our clients across various formats (e.g., interviews, in-person meetings, surveys, etc.).
We are seeking a bilingual Client Service Associate with a preference of being fluent in Japanese to participate in a unique global mobility program that offers you the opportunity to experience working within two of the AlphaSights’ offices based in world-class cities. You’ll work within our New York Client Service team for a 6-12 month immersive experience featuring significant training and professional development before permanently relocating into one of our growing Asia offices where you’ll leverage your cross-cultural learnings to maximize client & firm outcomes.
