About the team

Our Delivering Deal Value (DDV) team, within Consulting, assists both Corporate and Private Equity (PE) clients in a wide range of business critical operational and transformational challenges around Merger and Acquisition (M&A) activity. We advise our clients on deals with values ranging from GBP50 million to over GBP5 billion.

We currently have a vacancy for a Manager with strong Post Merger Integration (PMI) experience for our team focussing on Merger & Acquisition Integration (MAI).

About the role

The DDV MAI team focuses on providing support for potential/actual transactions and assists clients in all operational integration aspects of the transaction, pre and post completion, including:

  • Synergy development and review

  • Mergers & Acquisitions Integration
  • Post-acquisition performance improvement

As part of the transaction process, the DDV MAI team develops a rapid understanding of the target/client business in order to quickly assimilate the key operational issues, synergies, risks and upsides around an integration. We report our findings real time to our clients but, typically, we will also produce clear, written reports articulating our findings for any purchaser or vendor. We may then be involved in helping our clients with the post deal implementation, advising on synergies, cost reduction opportunities, and programme management.
