Head of Corporate Development
Health & Beauty
- Up to £150,000 + bonus + LTIP
Our client is a global market leader in its specialist sector within health and beauty. With extensive operations in the UK and Australasia, the business is highly profitable, growing rapidly and seeking to expand its operations significantly in both its core operations and in opening new markets globally. With a highly supportive private equity investor, ambitious and high-quality management team, the business is well positioned for rapid and sustained growth.
Reporting to the Group Chief Operating Officer, the Head of Corporate Development will be responsible for all aspects of the business development process internationally. You will be expected to manage the research, due diligence and commercial analysis process on all significant business projects and mergers and acquisitions activity.
The ideal candidate is likely to have gained experience in either a global investment bank, corporate finance boutique or in-house corporate finance team in a listed or private equity backed company. Whilst not a pre-requisite, experience in managing smaller bolt-on style acquisitions, on an international basis would be advantageous, as would prior experience gained working on franchising operations. Essential is strong experience in M&A working on all aspects of a transaction process from origination, deal structuring, negotiation, execution, and integration.
This is an exceptional opportunity for an ambitious and driven M&A professional to play a key role in an international M&A programme.
Please note that due to the expected volume of applications we will only be able to respond to those candidates whose experience matches the requirements of our client. If you have not heard from us within the next ten days, please assume you have been unsuccessful on this occasion.
