Ref: MR50535

Central London
c£70k - £80k + bonus, benefits

Our client is the best-kept secret in cloud communications, but they're ready for their close up! That's where you come in. As they spread the word and bring more customers aboard, they need a Head of Corporate Development to join their merry band of misfits in London. You'll work as part of a young and vibrant team spread across San Francisco, Austin, Los Angeles, London, Brussels, Lasi, Seoul and Hong Kong.


Reporting directly to the CEO and coaching 1 associate, you will be:

  • Analyzing corporate development opportunities and charting out the potential M&A landscape for the Group;
  • Working directly with CEO, CFO and other stakeholders to develop a corporate development strategy and playbook;
  • Focusing more on the business opportunity than on the financial mechanics of the deal;
  • Preparing business cases for each opportunity and presenting them to the Board of Directors;


The successful candidate will either be a qualified Accountant, a MBA or have an alternative business degree. In addition, you'll bring prior experience gained within another high growth Technology group or a tech focused VC, with a proven track record in deal execution. Ideally, you'll have a deep understanding of the start-up ecosystem and SaaS/Recurring revenue models, with a hands-on and 'get-stuff-done' attitude, a contagious positive thinker.

To apply for this role, please use the Apply button, or alternatively, email your CV to Mark Richards: mrichards@walkerhamill.com or Claire Jefferies: cjefferies@walkerhamill.com, quoting reference MR50535.


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. We are sorry but if you have not heard from us within the next ten days, please assume you have been unsuccessful on this occasion.
