Role Overview

  • The Strategic Corporate Finance team is planning to grow significantly in the next three years and is prioritising the development of executive grade team members.
  • The department is winning projects that require particular skills from an accounting practice background to support the variety of skills already within the team.
  • The objective of this role is to be a trusted resource for the partnership team for the delivery of technical assignments.

  • Valuations: The ideal candidate will have knowledge of the different valuation methodologies, have the potential to be trained in how to craft a valuation report, and have a commercial eye to understand what drives value in an organisation.
  • Due Diligence assignments: The team are often mandated by corporate acquirers, investors and banks to evaluate the financial strength, robustness and future of a target company given a certain set of strategic goals/transaction purpose. The ideal candidate will be able to understand these goals and apply both a critical commercial eye and strong financial knowledge to investigate the target and form an assessment. Training and guidance will be provided but successful candidates will show their confidence to investigate to suitable depth based on their knowledge and analysis.  
  • Supporting transactions and strategic planning: The individual will often be part of seeing major strategic decisions emerge from the very start and have an opportunity to help contribute towards the design of the lifecycle of a business.
