Citadel Surveyor Capital Business Analyst Position

Hi all,

I saw this opening at Citadel. It's not a core function as it's not a trading / research role. It seems more of a corporate development / internal consulting role. I couldn't find much information about it but wanted to see what the WSO consensus would be for a role with these responsibilities. I wonder where you could go from this role.

It has a consulting/IB skillset req but I can't piece together why this would require sell-side prior experience.
