Position summary

Your opportunity
Deloitte Advisory Corporate Finance provides corporates, private equity houses and other clients with a full suite of M&A and capital raising services. We advise on acquisitions, divestments, joint ventures, buy-outs and public markets transactions, a significant number of which are cross-border or international in nature. We are a lead advisory-focused part of Deloitte’s large and diverse Financial Advisory professional services practice.

The Advisory Corporate Finance business is structured by product and sector teams. The product teams cover equity capital markets & PLC advisory, debt advisory, accelerated M&A (difficult/distressed M&A) and valuations. The sector teams, along with dedicated regional teams across the UK, provide a broad coverage base of UK corporates and private equity. In 2017, our diverse team of c.200 people in London and the regions advised on over 87 completed deals.

We are seeking to expand and are always interested to speak to talented individuals with experience in equity capital markets and M&A.

We encourage consideration of flexible ways of working, both formal and informal arrangements that allow for the best outcomes for our people and our clients. If this opportunity is of interest to you with some flexibility, please do discuss with us.

Your role
The ECM & PLC Advisory team is a rapidly growing team that has built a
presence in the London market over the past three years. We have executed
transactions involving companies such as AJ Bell plc, XPS Group plc, Morses Club plc, Murgitroyd Group plc and Harvey Nash Group plc and are an accredited Sponsor and Nominated Adviser.
Our team consists of professionals from investment banking, broking and
professional services backgrounds. We advise a wide range of clients from
Deloitte’s UK and global network on IPOs, Takeover Code M&A and capital
raising and restructuring transactions. Services include acting as Independent
IPO Adviser, Sponsor, Nominated Adviser and lead financial adviser on both the
buy- and sell-side for public takeovers and P2Ps. We also benefit from working
closely alongside Deloitte’s market-leading transaction services team who provide a full suite of reporting accountant and IPO readiness services.

Our diverse team has enjoyed considerable success and we are seeking to continue growing the team to support a strong pipeline of dealflow. We are currently looking for an Assistant Director to lead junior team members on the day to day aspects of transactions, reporting to one Partner and two Directors.

Your responsibilities will include

•Working across a range of ECM and public M&A transactions.
•Assisting with day to day management of transactions which includes taking responsibility for preparation of information and client communications.
•Industry research for both deal origination and transaction analysis.
•Valuation work and financial modelling, including DCF and LBO analysis.
•Making a proactive contribution to increasing the team’s market presence and network and business development opportunities.

Your work, your choice
How long does impact take? How long is a piece of string? How many seconds does a solution contain? How can we possibly tell? After all, impact can be huge or small. Immediate or years in the making. At Deloitte we believe the best impact is the value we add, not the hours we sit at our desk.

We, therefore, carefully consider agile ways of working, both formal and informal, that allow for the best impact for our people and our clients. If the working pattern you are looking for is not specifically indicated below, we are happy to discuss alternative arrangements.

Location: You will be based in the Deloitte London office, however the role may also involve travel and will require the flexibility to meet peaks of work inherent in the cycle of a deal. We specify full mobility for our financial advisory roles but we make arrangements respectfully. Working from home days are available and flexible depending on clients, deadlines, and projects.

Work pattern:
Permanent full-time.
Your professional experience
To qualify for the role you must have:
•Transactional experience in a lead advisory role, including leading on deals (or significant parts of deals) – ideally around 5 years’ experience in public company advisory / M&A at an investment bank, stockbroker or professional services firm.
•An enthusiasm for equity markets transactions, including IPOs, M&A and restructuring. Specialist expertise in public company advisory roles and public market regulation (such as the Listing Rules, AIM Rules and Takeover Code) is not essential but would be desirable.
•Strong academics, including CFA/ACA or equivalent (desirable but not essential depending on other experience).
•Excellent numeracy and presentational skills with keen attention to detail.
•Client focus, with an ability to work quickly and establish effective working relationships.
•Strong team management skills with a desire to develop, coach and motivate members of the team.
•Excellent oral and written communication skills.
•Logical and methodical approach to problem solving.
•Project management and organisational skills.
•The ability to undertake detailed financial/commercial analysis to inform client advice.
•The desire and ability to be involved in business development activities.

Your service line: Financial Advisory
Advising clients in the moments that define their business takes multiple layers of expertise. Much more than due-diligence, this is about diverse teams of specialists coming together, crossing service lines and international borders to tackle the many, complex issues involved in major transactions. And we have one of the broadest networks in the business. Here, you’ll find fascinating, career-building projects, market leading approaches, cutting-edge resources, huge clients and inspirational colleagues. As well as opportunities to develop a deep industry or product specialism.
Personal independence
Regulation and controls are standard practice in our industry and Deloitte is no exception. These controls provide important legal protection for both you and the firm. We are subject to a number of audit regulations, one of which requires that certain colleagues abide by specific personal independence constraints. This can mean that you and your "Immediate Family Members" are not permitted to hold certain financial interests (shares, funds, bonds etc.) with audit clients of the firm. The recruitment team will provide further detail as you progress through the recruitment process.
