BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES

Operating from more than 28 countries and 70 offices, Duff & Phelps helps clients realise business goals across M&A, restructuring, financing and other corporate transactions. Complementing its existing Global TAS practice and focused on rapid market share gain, Duff & Phelps is in the process of expanding the team in London and is offering the rare opportunity to join a team that is in ‘high growth’ with unmatched benefits and challenges:

  • Key role in shaping and driving the growth of the Duff & Phelps TAS business in the UK, Europe and Global markets;
  • High levels of responsibility and autonomy;
  • Work-winning, client development and execution opportunities based on an issues-lead approach across a range of sectors – variety and stretch;
  • Opportunities to work alongside colleagues on multi-disciplinary projects as part of a collegiate and entrepreneurial group;
  • Flexible and performance-based reward structure that is based on a “one-firm” approach and not constrained by territorial/personal boundaries; and
  • Real opportunity for accelerated progression

RESPONSIBILITIES

The strategic objective for TAS is to expand into the corporate and private equity markets where work-winning is based more on a combination of content-lead account management and delivery rather than the traditional execution-only role with work-winning being primarily a Partner responsibility. The successful implementation of this go-to-market route requires a senior team that has the experience and appetite to challenge traditional models. Key responsibilities include:

  • Manage the execution of buy-side and sell-side financial due diligence engagements for private equity, lender, and corporate clients;
  • Assisting in identifying issues (quality of earnings, working capital considerations, debt and debt-like items) for purchase price reductions, deal restructuring, or deal termination;
  • Managing and contributing to complex areas of the report-writing process
  • Advise clients on post-acquisition steps to achieve anticipated earnings/cash flow improvement; and
  • Work closely with the broader Duff & Phelps team to ensure the application of sound project management principles and quality assurance at all stages and phases of projects

REQUIREMENTS

  • Ambitious;
  • Deal experience including financial due diligence;
  • Demonstrated superior analytical and problem-solving skills;
  • Demonstrated interpersonal and client relationships skills;
  • Proven written and verbal communication skills;
  • Demonstrated proficiency in Microsoft Office, with focus on PowerPoint and Excel; and
  • Flexibility to travel, as needed
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills that help represent diverse communities
  • Experience working with diverse teams

Necessarily successful candidates will have a set of characteristics and attributes that can thrive in this challenging and dynamic environment. We value the ability to operate with flexibility and autonomy whilst being part of a tight-knit, collaborative team who have fun working hard. We don’t support a parochial, “eat-what-you-kill” culture and are looking for strong team players who will absolutely buy-in to the longer-term strategic ambitions of the wider business.
