At Horatio Investments, we don’t believe if someone has achieved top grades or gone to the best-rated universities that this will automatically give you the attributes that we are looking for.

This opportunity will offer you the chance to learn entrepreneurial skills first-hand from a team of experienced entrepreneurs in a hands-on and direct approach, within a team directly influenced by our CEO, Adam Norris. Adam Norris has notably started and grown businesses worth up to £3.5bn and having retired at 36, Adam soon after decided to help others by investing £100 million into start-up companies through Horatio Investments.

Since our inception 10 years ago, we have outperformed every UK listed investment company or fund that publishes results.

The Role Will Include:

  • Learning how to run a successful company from the ground up, through observation, training and hands-on practical work
  • Learning and implementing strategies that ensure the success, profitability and expansion of such companies

  1. Why are you the right person for this opportunity?
  2. What were the last 5 books that you have read? (please list them in the order that you recommend them)
  3. What were your earliest influences of the business world? Did you learn any valuable lessons from those closest to you?

Or did you admire from a distance, maybe follow a particular entrepreneur and their successes and failures? Was there a company or brand that you always wanted to work for and why? We want to hear about the influences in your formative years and how you feel they have impacted your mindset of the business world today.
  4. At University, did you compete in a competitive team-based sport or alternative team-based, competitive extracurricular activity? How did you balance your university studies with your commitment to the sport or activity?

This role will cover all of our commercial properties (all within 20 minutes’ drive of each other), including multimillion-pound home and office locations, farmland and restaurant developments.

The Role Will Include:

  • Researching and recommending the best business technology solutions for our business
  • Project managing the implementation of technology in our offices and other properties
  • Studying material to constantly keep ahead of technology advances
  • Managing our outsourced IT support, working towards a plan to bring this service in-house.
