Job Description

Rare career opportunity to convert into M&A/Lead Advisory with a large UK and international firm.

Your new company
A leading UK and international full-service firm, our client has had considerable success in attracting Big 4 and other significant players at Partner level over the last couple of years. As part of this they have hired key Partners into Transaction Advisory, which is resulting in further growth needs in the M&A team. The M&A team are mid-market specialists with deals ranging from £10 - £100 million.

Your new role
The deal range you'd be working on is drawn from:

  • The mid-market
  • Deals from £10 mill - £100 mill
  • Mainly sell-side with some buy-side
  • Sell-side to overseas multinationals, Private Equity and HNWI's
  • Buy-side: a lot of overseas corporates looking for UK acquisitions
  • Proper in-depth sector expertise: Industrials and Construction in particular

You'd be working with the originators and executors of these deals by conducting:
  • financial modelling
  • preparation of information memoranda
  • business plans
  • valuation work
  • industry/market research and analysis
  • helping prepare sales pitches
  • starting to develop your own relationships and network

The firm will provide on- and off- the job training and will give early responsibility all the way through your career path with them.

What you'll need to succeed

  • ACA newly qualified, 1st time passes
  • Background in audit/assurance or advisory/TS
  • Well-evidenced interest in Corporate Finance and M&A
  • Commercial approach combined with intellectual rigour

What you'll get in return

  • A firm that does not "sweat their asset"
  • A rewarding career, but without sacrificing personal life
  • Working with highly well-regarded and respected mentors, without too many layers between you and them
  • Being out in front of clients as soon as you are ready
  • A bonus pool which is drawn from Transaction Advisory and not from the wider firm
