Last updated 17 days ago
Location:Sydney
Job Type:Full Time, Part Time

Imagine yourself thriving in an innovative and supportive environment, building your M&A experience whilst advising a diverse range of clients on some of their most important decisions - whether it be a founder selling their "life's work", or an executive team making a career-defining acquisition. Are you in?


About the Team


We are M&A Advisors - we provide tailored M&A advice to ensure our clients pursue and successfully complete the transactions that are right for them.

Our M&A Advisory team works directly with shareholders, founders and C-suite executives throughout the entire M&A lifecycle to deliver advice on every aspect of a transaction, from initial valuation guidance, through financial and strategic analysis, to finding and negotiating with the right counterparties. We do this across a wide range of transactions including acquisitions, divestments, recapitalisations and capital raisings.

We are a group of high-calibre professionals led by a diverse leadership team who are supportive, collaborative and innovative. We execute some of Australia's most interesting transactions across entrepreneur-backed and family-owned businesses, private equity, and corporate Australia.

We are also a global team - working on cross-border deals with multi-disciplinary teams - allowing our people to build wide networks across the world's largest professional services firm.


What will your typical day look like

This opportunity will see you working directly with market-leading M&A lead advisors to support with:

  • Execution of exciting deals with clients including international and national corporations, emerging companies, private businesses and private equity firms, across a range of industry sectors including healthcare, consumer business, technology, financial services, manufacturing, etc.
  • Delivery of deal documents such as strategy papers, information memoranda, management presentations, valuation analysis, purchaser co-ordination, and taking responsibility for preparation of information for client/bidder/stakeholder communications
  • Preparation of valuation support materials including financial modelling, DCF analysis, comparable companies, precedent transactions and integrated operating models
  • Assistance with management of due diligence processes including responsibility for the data room and Q&A process
  • Assistance with end-to-end project management of transactions including direct liaison with vendors/bidders/boards and other deal stakeholders

Enough about us, let's talk about you

You are someone, who:

  • Has a structured thinking style with excellent analytical and financial skills to support complex transactions
  • Has demonstrated interest in M&A - you are intellectually curious, actively read the financial press, and have knowledge of the broader M&A deal/ transaction process
  • Can structure, draft and manage the finalisation of pitch books and other business development work to win prospective mandates
  • Has advanced MS Office skills and ideally some experience with research tools (S&P Capital IQ, etc.)
  • Is collaborative and able to develop enthusiasm and commitment from team members and share knowledge
  • Is good at developing strong and durable client relationships as well as build and maintain effective relationships with colleagues
  • An Undergraduate degree, ideally in Commerce, Finance, Business, Accounting or Engineering
  • Post graduate qualification or currently studying, e.g. CA, CPA, CFA, MBA or Master's in Applied Finance
  • May have experience in an M&A transaction environment, which would be seen favourably but is not critical; you might be in a lead advisory or transaction services role currently, but you might also be in another professional services environment with the hunger to build a career in M&A!
