Working on iconic deals with national and global clients, they put together major mergers and acquisitions and resolve business crises - from international take-over bids to financial crime investigations and cases of insolvency.

They draw upon their M&A experience across many industries to support and partner with clients, to positively impact society and the communities in which they operate.

You'll be part of a global team solving challenging strategic problems for clients through innovative ideas and thought leadership. In return, their culture gives you the opportunity to challenge conventional thinking and a tailored mentorship to help you develop and progress.


You will work with leading corporate clients and investors, helping them tackle their toughest decisions. Your engagements will include a mix of corporate strategy (growth strategy, market entry, pricing, commercial excellence, product strategy) and transaction-related work (commercial due diligence and pre- and post-deal value creation). Your work will be varied, fast-paced and no engagement is ever the same!

As a key member of the team, you will gain extensive exposure to engagements across Banking, Insurance, Wealth and Asset Management, Payments as well as FinTech, and work on a variety of strategy and commercial due diligence assignments.

Some exciting situations they have worked on recently include the sell-side diligence of a cyber insurer, the buy-side diligence of a wealth technology business and the definition of a digitisation strategy for a commercial insurance broker.

In their due diligence projects, you will be exposed to a variety of deal situations in terms of sub-sector, deal size (enterprise value from less than £100 million to several billions), type of client (e.g. private equity investors vs. corporates), side of the deal (e.g. buy- vs. sell-side) and type of investment (e.g. minority investment, LBO, carve-out).


  • Significant experience from a strategy consulting firm with experience in conducting and managing Commercial Due Diligence/Vendor Due Diligence or M&A

  • Experience within Private Equity (investment or operational role)

  • You'll have a very structured approach to problem solving and exceptional analytical skills

  • Strong client management skills, including an understanding of how to communicate with clients of different backgrounds and opinions

  • Proven experience of coaching junior team members

  • An ability to multitask effectively and balance time between project delivery and business development support effectively

  • Experienced in running projects on a day-to-day basis, structuring and managing the work streams and supervising delivery

  • Planning initial hypotheses and analysis; formulating initial hypotheses based on previous experience, knowledge of the sector and understanding of the scope of work

  • As a Manager you will be experienced in delivering client projects and supporting junior members of the team

Job Offer

  • £55,000 - £65,000 base salary dependant on experience
  • Cash/Car allowance
  • Lucrative bonus scheme
