High Yield and Loan Capital Markets originates any combination of fixed rate, floating rate, first lien, second lien and mezzanine debt to meet the capital requirements for an acquisition or recapitalization.

On the origination front, the team works closely with Investment Banking to identify financing opportunities, and structures new deals that best serve the clientaEU(tm)s capital needs and operational objectives. After being mandated on a transaction the team works closely with the sales and trading desk to execute, syndicate and distribute debt offerings.

sounds like you'd be working on a high yield desk. if that is true, you will have awesome opportunities to transfer to Hedge Funds, IBD, or PE. Of course given the situation of the credit markets, I am not sure how much deal flow you might see.

It does not sound like a middle office job, but I can't tell. Maybe someone else can chime in...sounds like a great position to me though.
