The opportunity

Our Transaction Services team helps our clients drive value from mergers and acquisitions (M&A) with a forward-thinking approach to deal planning. We are looking to grow our team with an extremely capable Senior Consultant.

Our team helps buyers, sellers, private equity investors, and lenders in developing and executing on their M&A strategies.

As trusted advisors to our clients, we keep in regular dialogue with the CEO, CFO, Principals, and other the primary decision makers to keep them well consulted through the deal lifecycle.

We offer our clients start-to-finish support in the acquisition process, including coordination and execution of financial due diligence investigations, input on strategy, identification and mitigation of risk areas, and input and advice on contract terms geared to reduce risks. We also assist our clients with a host of services to help close the transaction and prepare for post-deal integration.

Our people are motivated self-starters with expertise across finance, valuation, tax, accounting and financial reporting.

This role offers you the opportunity to work in a fast paced and exciting environment, as part of a close-knit team of professionals, who have over 150 years of combined M&A experience. Over the last 4 years our Transaction Services team has tripled in size and we are continuing to grow at a record pace. Each project team is typically comprised of 4 or 5 people, giving you plenty of interaction with both junior and senior members of the team, and an incredible opportunity to learn on the job.
