Our client is a leading UK mid-market private equity firm investing in deals valued between £5m and £75m across a range of sectors. Working closely with entrepreneurial management teams, the business has an exceptionally strong track record in growing businesses and achieving substantial capital gains for its clients.
We are now seeking an experienced professional to join a very established team that becomes involved in the later stages of the deal process and then works in close partnership with the management of investee companies from initial investment through to exit. The role is wide-ranging and covers influencing companies on strategic and organisational development, the management of re-financings and bolt-on acquisitions, and exit planning and execution.
You should be a highly ambitious individual with a strong track record of success in fast moving environments. Fascinated by how businesses grow and develop you must be financially literate and will either be a qualified ACA with approaching two years’ experience post-qualification gained in M&A, turnaround or strategy; or may alternatively be a strategy consultant with prior experience gained working with private equity backed businesses. Capable of working closely with the highest quality entrepreneurs and their management teams, you will feel comfortable providing support and advice in a partnership capacity. You should have a highly commercial outlook, sound judgement and excellent communication and people skills. You will feel comfortable working within the private equity industry and be able to quickly adapt to its culture.
This is an exceptional opportunity to work closely with the management of some of the UK’s most successful and entrepreneurial companies from initial investment through to exit.
