Private Equity

We are working with a leading Private Equity buyout firm headquartered in London that has a global presence and significant capital under management. Following the closing of their latest fund, which was in demand and oversubscribed, they are looking at expanding their transaction services team which has an operational remit and supports the onboarding and structuring of their portfolio.

As a result of large and diverse investments into a range of global companies, there is a complex network of holding companies and structures to ensure maximum operational and financial efficiencies. With a team in place to manage their UK and Luxembourg commitments and due to an increasing amount of investments abroad, they now require an ambitious accountant to focus on their US and rest of world portfolio to assist with closing deals and maintaining the integrity of the company structures post acquisition.

For this Transactions Finance Manager role, we are seeking either an Audit Manager from a reputable accountancy practice or a Fund Accountant with several years post-qualified experience operating in a Private Equity finance team and is looking for something different to a usual finance team role. For either candidate, the expectation is to have a knowledge and understanding of how a private equity deal is structured rather than a perfect working knowledge – they are open to training and developing somebody with the right attitude and wider skillset. Most importantly, key to success in this role will be the maturity and ability to effectively build and manage relationships with multiple internal and external stakeholders including investment team members, tax & legal advisors and others to solve various operational and financial problems.

Responsibilities

  • Working closely with deal teams and advisors to establish investment holding company structures for the acquisition of new investments.
  • Assisting with funds flow management for deal closings and working with deal teams and fund accounting to ensure smooth closing or exit processes.
  • Working to establish operating procedures for the existing and new deal structures.
  • Responsible for the engagement of company advisors including audit, legal, tax and corporate services where necessary.
  • Day to day management and compliance of the companies including but not limited to accounting and tax.

Skills

  • Qualified ACA with 2 – 4 years post-qualified experience, either gained as an Assistant Manager / Manager in a reputable accounting firm or as a Fund Accountant in a Private Equity (or equivalent alternative) finance team.
  • Accuracy and attention to detail.
  • Desire to build working relationships with an array of suppliers and stakeholders.
