About the opportunity
Corran Capital is an Edinburgh based venture capital firm that helps build clean energy and sustainability focused businesses. Corran is now planning to establish a small, focused investment team and, as a key first step, are seeking to recruit an Investment Director with the passion, experience and commercial gravitas to drive the success of the platform.
About the role
Corran requires an individual with a desire to make a positive impact in the clean energy and sustainability space, while also showing passion and enthusiasm to support business growth and empower business owners to recognise their companies’ potential. The successful candidate will have the opportunity to grow and shape the future of Corran and its investment activity. The role will involve deal origination, the review of investment opportunities and deal execution. It will include leading on diligence, assessing investment risk and reward, the completion of internal approvals and, thereafter, working with investee companies to help drive value for Corran’s investors.

Our preference is for individuals with strong communication skills who can quickly build rapport and gain the trust and respect of founders and management. We are looking for someone with their own networks of energy/environmental advisors and entrepreneurs to help generate new investment opportunities and support portfolio internationalisation and growth. Candidates should currently be working for late-stage VC/growth equity or a lower market PE firm, working on deals comparable to Corran’s OR have a minimum 5 years transactional experience (corporate finance/investment banking).
