Consultant finance & strategy

Rebel is looking for a professional finance and strategy consultant with an interest in international infrastructure and public-private partnership projects

In 2002 we started Rebel because we wanted to make the world a little bit better. Today, more than 200 Rebels are working from offices in Rotterdam, Antwerp, Düsseldorf, Johannesburg, Nairobi, Mumbai, Manila, Jakarta and Washington DC on projects in socially relevant sectors including real estate, infrastructure, mobility and transport, culture, healthcare, security and energy.

We believe in small-scale business and entrepreneurship. For this reason, Rebel is organised as a galaxy of small ventures in which we are both employees and shareholders. Ventures are involved not only in advising but also in investing, for example through projects in which we are co-investors, or through the setup of new business initiatives or investment funds.

Rebel International

We are the primary team working on Rebel’s international activities, working in close cooperation with our fellow Rebels on four continents. We assist governments, development banks, private infrastructure developers and construction companies with the development, financing and implementation of infrastructure, public service and public-private partnership projects at a global scale. We provide these services by supporting infrastructure tender processes, project finance deals, project development and public policy strategies across the full spectrum of sectors in which Rebel operates. We strive to remain at the forefront of innovation in those sectors, working on the themes of the future (smart cities, hyperloop, autonomous shuttles, circular economy, among others). We love what we do and particularly enjoy putting our financial and economic skills to use in impactful projects in developed and emerging markets.

Sample projects

Some of our recent projects include:

  • Tendering the operations of a Bus Rapid Transit project in Tanzania;
  • Developing a smart city/internet of things platform in Saudi Arabia;
  • Advising on a multi-airport transaction in Puerto Rico;
  • Supporting the implementation of small-scale solar projects in Cabo Verde;
  • Designing a financing strategy for a multi-billion hydropower project in Pakistan;
  • Tendering and implementing a contactless smartcard system for all metropolitan transit services in a city in the Philippines;
  • Organising a tender for medical laboratories and dialysis centres in Kyrgyzstan;
  • Designing an implementation and financing plan for a large land reclamation and flood protection project in Jakarta in Indonesia;
  • Supporting the largest construction company worldwide in its bid for the construction and operation of a toll road in Ghana;
  • For additional examples, see below.

Who are we looking for?

Rebel is growing and we are therefore on the lookout for a new Rebel to join our team. If:

  • You are a professional with 5-10 years of international work experience in financial advisory or investment and a track record in the field of infrastructure, project finance and public-private partnerships;
  • You hold a Master’s degree in economics, business, finance or equivalent from a reputable university;
  • You have a proven ability to solve financial/economic problems on the basis of conceptual thinking as well as through the application of quantitative analysis and modelling, combined with an interest in social and development issues;
  • You have strong speaking and writing skills in English and preferably a minimum of one other language (Russian, Chinese, Spanish or Portuguese would be an advantage);
  • You have outstanding presentation and communication skills and are able to convincingly bring a point at the highest corporate or government levels;
  • You are able to leverage your existing network to create and seize opportunities where they arise and bring a strong commercial drive together with an ambition to contribute to our growth and make Rebel even more successful;

then you may be the Rebel we are looking for!

What we offer

We offer a dynamic and exciting job in a creative and entrepreneurial environment, in which you will have maximal space, opportunity and support to expand your professional and personal horizons and develop the Rebel in you. You will work from our main office in Rotterdam in the Netherlands, although frequent international travel should be expected. You will not have a boss and will be given full flexibility to arrange your working schedule as you see fit. You will be provided with ample autonomy, encouragement, remuneration and the opportunity to co-invest both in Rebel itself as well as in new Rebel initiatives.
