Job Details

A career within Capital Markets will provide you with the opportunity to be responsible for complex financial reporting issues around deals and other transformational events. You'll tackle your client's needs with a solution oriented approach that creatively addresses complex financial reporting problems for high profile transactions and you'll have significant interaction with senior company management teams, bankers, lawyers and other advisers.
Capital Markets advises companies on important deals - initial public offerings ("IPOs"), significant acquisitions/mergers or divestments and raising capital through debt or equity issuances. We are specialists in the UK and US capital market regimes and provide assurance and advice in connection with the financial reporting aspects of these deals, including financial projections, financial reporting procedures and offering documents. The team brings together a mixture of capabilities to play a key role in providing transparency to our clients' stakeholders (such as investors, regulators and, other deal participants) through the assurance we provide in connection with capital markets transactions. The output of our assurance work is financial reports for our client's directors and other stakeholders in the form of comfort letters, opinions and narrative / diligence style reports.

PwC is the market leader in providing assurance on these deals. We provide services that our clients and their other advisers depend on. It's both a responsibility and a privilege to guide our clients through moments that matter deeply to them. Our breadth of clients in an ever-changing market means we need to be agile - responding when we need to, in a way that really makes a difference. We are looking for people with the interpersonal skills needed to develop trusted relationships with clients and work alongside them to help solve their issues. We apply the professionally skeptical mindset you will have learnt as an auditor in a deals context.

Our Capital Markets team works on some of the highest profile deals in the market. We pride ourselves on our inclusive culture and the importance we place on wellbeing and development. This is underpinned by a blend of home/office working. We are a supportive and collaborative team and empower and trust our people to work independently but with coaching and guidance as needed. Consultation is a core part of our culture, and our partners and directors work closely with more junior team members to share knowledge and experiences.

We support an inclusive culture by acknowledging the unique experiences and perspectives each individual brings to the table, with our team representing a number of different backgrounds and cultures. Many of our team are working parents.
