Pan European Private Equity Firm
- Excellent Basic + Bonus + Carried Interest
Our client is a highly successful investor in mid-market private equity opportunities in Western Europe. Headquartered in London the team has built up an impressive track record of returns for investors over the course of previous funds. With the imminent raising of a new fund the firm is now looking to add 2 talented individuals to join the investment team.
As an Associate you will be involved in all aspects of the private equity life-cycle, including:
- research and mapping of sectors, sub-sectors and specific investment targets;
- analysis of deal opportunities;
- the entire deal execution process;
- post-deal implementation of strategy and subsequent monitoring, in close collaboration with management; and
- the exit process.
The team is close-knit and has a collaborative culture. You will be working in small deal teams and will enjoy broad exposure from day one. The firm has a generalist approach to sector coverage, but has particular expertise in consumer facing digital businesses and TMT. The firm likes to invest in complex situations, where rapid, sustainable growth can be achieved.
Candidates are likely to have begun their careers in one of the leading global strategy consulting firms. You may have remained in consulting beyond initial training, or will have already made the move to the private equity industry. Additionally you may have graduated from a leading MBA school and be attracted by a career in European private equity.
In all cases candidates must display a high level of performance, relative to peer group and will be able to point to a high level of academic achievement. Fluency in Western European languages is an advantage, but is not essential.
This is an excellent opportunity to develop your career within one of London's most exciting PE firms, at a key point in its evolution. Rewards will be in line with those in other leading European buyout firms.
