Our Analyst program aims to provide a holistic experience to young talent in order to help prepare them for their future career aspirations. It showcases our commitment to investing in the leaders of tomorrow.
The program exposes analysts to senior leadership roles and helps strengthen their future-focused skill sets. It also provides analysts with diverse learning and interaction opportunities with the team, along with adequate support to help prepare for B-school admissions. We aim to foster both personal and professional development, with many analysts often establishing life-long friendships during the programme, as well as career mentors. Ultimately, our aim is to empower promising analysts with the tools they need to realise their full potential.
My time as part of True North’s analyst program was marked by a great degree of personal and professional growth. At True North, I worked on many exciting deals and developed a good understanding about private equity investing. The ownership and responsibility required from me forced me out of my comfort zone and honed my collaboration and stakeholder management skills. Apart from the amazing exposure, I cherish most the wonderful people I met during my time there, many of whom I still consider my personal mentors. The organisation is truly invested in an analyst’s growth and I am very grateful to the team for the support I received in applying to business schools.

True North has had a profound impact on both my personal and my professional growth. As an Indian mid-market PE fund, True North provided the opportunity to work not only on the end-to-end deal lifecycle but also on the different facets of PE (fundraising, LP engagement, co-investment, etc.). The lean deal team structure pushed me to take step-level responsibilities right from the beginning and the work ensured a steep learning curve throughout. Furthermore, I met some amazing people who were incredibly supportive of my MBA aspirations and guided me through preparation, recommendations, school selection etc.

It has been an enriching experience working with everyone at True North. The striking quality of the firm is its people – everyone shares a common set of values like staying humble and grounded when it comes to doing business and even otherwise. From the very beginning, True North’s right way of doing business and the overall approach towards being a good partner to all stakeholders was thoroughly imbibed in us. I have learnt a lot in my years with True North and I definitely owe it to the very amiable and approachable leadership at the firm.
True North’s Management Trainee program is focused on nurturing and developing young talent to prepare them for leadership roles at an early stage of their career. By introducing them to complex business scenarios, we aim to arm them with the knowledge and tools to solve real world business problems.
In the initial few months, trainees work very closely with leadership teams, rotating into different businesses. After this, the trainees are placed in senior positions within organizations which are typically at early stages of their growth journey. Career progression is defined by increasing the criticality, challenges and intensity of the role offered after every stint. Our management trainee program is based on a strong foundation of developing leaders for tomorrow – leaders who learn, represent, and embody our ethos.
I joined True North in July 2020 and got an opportunity to work across sectors through the MT program. My first role was with Integrace on key strategy projects. The seamless virtual onboarding and work-from-home environment helped me get up to speed. I worked closely with the senior leadership, managed multiple stakeholder interests and delivered high impact results, all within a two month span. This quality of exposure so early on is something unheard of in anyone’s career and it is empowering to know that True North has put its trust in me.

During my first MT stint at Cloudnine, I had an opportunity to work on a wide variety of challenges ranging from inventory optimization, productivity improvement, strategizing customer sourcing, and onboarding, exposing me to different fields in healthcare and financial services. Implementation is a key feature of projects at True North, where one gets to undertake end-to-end responsibility. Interacting and working directly with CXOs of growing companies in a fast-paced environment makes the experience even more enriching.
