M&A Assistant Project Manager/Project Manager (London, UK)

We're hiring!

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Project Manager (PM) in Aon's Strategic Advisor & Transaction Solutions ("ASATS") practice in the UK, London.

The ASATS team is a combined practice of Insurance and Human Capital experts with a dedicated focus on transactional activity. The team provides insurance advisory services to both private equity and strategic, corporate buyers, on buy-side and sell-side opportunities, as well as portfolio value audits for financial buyers.

The primary responsibility of the PM will be to support the team in the management of M&A insurance due diligence engagements, which provide project management and advisory services to Buyers and Sellers in the pre-acquisition and pre-sale environment. The project work will consist of insurance due diligence, planning for post-Closing insurance programs, new entity cost structures, and reviewing applicable transaction documentation.
