Corporate Finance Associate / Manager
PE-backed Public Practice Firm
- East London / East Anglia (with hybrid working)
- Competitive + bonus + benefits
Our client is a leading public practice firm based in East Anglia which has recently been acquired by a private equity backer. The successful candidate in this newly-created role will help drive the continued expansion of the corporate finance function as the firm pursues a buy-and-build growth model.
Working closely with, and reporting directly to, the Director of Corporate Finance, the successful candidate will cover corporate finance in its broadest sense. Core responsibilities will be client-facing and include refinancings and debt restructures, due diligence for acquisition and sale mandates, fund-raising for transactions, and post-acquisition integration planning. You will independently run M&A deals on both the buy- and sell-side, ranging in size up to c. £50m. This individual will actively promote and drive the business’s services through networking and developing both new and existing client relationships. The role is hybrid and our client is flexible on where the successful candidate can be based, but you will need to be able to undertake some limited travel in East London and East Anglia to support ongoing work.
The successful candidate will be a driven and ambitious corporate finance professional with an accounting qualification and at least three years post-qualified experience. Exposure to corporate finance at an owner-managed level and a capacity to oversee an entire deal process are required. You will need to be technically strong with excellent communication skills and have the confidence to deal with clients directly.

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, assume you have been unsuccessful on this occasion.
