My client, a leading financial services institution are currently going through a huge amount of growth through acquisition which has resulted in a change in their finance function.
As a result, they are now seeking a dynamic, strategic and analytical Business Partner to support the senior leadership team within one of their divisions globally. This person will must be financially numerate as there still elements of financial analysis but the bulk of the work is focused around activities such as;
- Corporate development/planning
- New product development
- In house transaction advisory
- Post M&A integration
Successful candidates will have had exposure within a corporate finance advisory/transaction services (ideally post deal rather than re deal) team as well as being a qualified accountant (preferably trained in audit). This is the ideal role for someone looking for move from doing external to in-house advisory. Alternatively, someone acting as a Business Manager to a trading desk would also be well suited to this role.
This role will provide a phenomenal amount of exposure to the business, deals, senior management and is the ideal role to provide a good platform for Divisional FC / Regional CFO later on down the line.
