Job duties are varied and complex, needing independent judgment.
Upon joining you’ll begin with a comprehensive 3-month training program to introduce you to all the aspects of the buy-side M&A process.
Key responsibilities are: working with business buyers to establish and agree and realistic acquisition criteria, sourcing off-market acquisition opportunities, cold calling acquisition targets to start negotiations, market research, client account management, maintaining good relationships with both business buyers and sellers, seeing that revenue and deal targets are met, providing a thorough handover of each deal to our senior negotiations team and facilitating the exchange of documents between buyer and seller.
