Job Description

Your New Company

We are proud to be supporting one of the largest private education providers in the world on their recruitment of a new Head of M&A. Based in incredible offices in Central London, there are extremely good transport links for people living further afield.

The business have a multi-billion turnover, and this is set to grow with their huge ambition moving forwards. They are truly global - with a presence in almost 30 countries across the globe, and this is set to expand.

Your New Role

In your new role; you will be responsible for leading a team of 3 regional M&A heads, supporting them on their deal process - rather than getting involved in every deal going on. However, as and when things become busy - you may need to be seconded to a particular region to close certain deals.

This role will have you involved in the full process from origination to completion, and everything in between. You will also have ownership of the due diligence process on most deals, and so an appreciation for the need to get this right is very much needed.

What You'll Need to Succeed

  • Experience working on an international scale
  • Involvement in full M&A process (origination, negotiation, due diligence, close etc.)
  • Willingness to travel internationally for ad hoc projects

What You'll Get in Return

You will be rewarded with a generous starting salary, plus bonus & benefits. Further, you will report into the M&A Director, who is extremely impressive and will be an extremely useful development point for yourself and your career in the future. Roles like this take the best of the best, and the future possibilities after this sort of position are limitless.
