M&A Executive

Location: Edinburgh, Scotland
Contract Type: Permanent
Specialisation: Corporate Finance
Salary: Negotiable
REF: BBBH234549_1616427930

A truly rare M&A Executive job opportunity has just come onto the market in Edinburgh with one of our largest clients. No prior corporate finance experience is required. This is a chance for a newly qualified ACA / ACCA auditor / accountant to make their first transition into lead advisory M&A role.

As an M&A Executive, you will work closely with the Directors and Partners on both buy-side and sell-side transactions. You will learn the full deal cycle in this role and be given the opportunity to work towards running your own M&A deal process.

The team advise and support public and private companies, owner managed businesses and private equity houses on mostly M&A mid-cap transactions. Your role as the M&A Executive will be to support the team in executing the deals by preparing reports, information memoranda and financial models using Excel.

To be considered for the role, you must have the following experience and attributes:

  • CA / ACA / ACCA qualified.
  • Genuine interest and desire in corporate finance
  • Commercially minded
  • Good knowledge of Excel

Roles like this which do not require prior M&A transaction experience are rare. If you have had some exposure to advisory engagements, whether that be within a TS, M&A or restructuring capacity, then that is advantageous but not essential.

If you have recently qualified as an accountant and are seeking a hands-on, highly commercial and challenging role that will allow you to get fully involved in M&A deals then you must apply today.
