Associate Director role with a Top 10 international firm of accountants regarded as one of the best deal advisory practices in the UK. Frequently at the top of the annual deal lists in the region the firms' tremendous success has created a key opening for an Associate Director.

Supporting the directors and partners the role encompasses the provision of financial due diligence to major privately owned and private equity backed businesses. This covers the whole range of corporate finance transactions from MBO's to mergers, acquisitions and disposals. A qualified accountant is required, most likely ACA, CA or ACCA (ICAEW or ICAS) with extensive client facing due diligence experience. A sound commercial understanding beyond the financials is highly desirable whereas a demonstrable track record of board level interaction and influence is essential. Those wishing to progress beyond Associate Director to Director and beyond will need to demonstrate interest in winning new clients and general revenue generation.

The role would certainly suit someone from a Big 4 or Top 10 firm but those outside of the Top 10 with relevant experience would be equally considered. The business would also consider individuals who may have recently departed the profession for industry but feel in the current economic environment, with clear progression opportunities available, their careers would be better served returning to the profession.

The role forms part of a great team who have developed an excellent working environment and perform at a very high level. With superb offices few transaction services roles offer so much variety, flexible working, opportunity and quality of assignments.
