This boutique Corporate Finance & Investment Advisory / Fund Management firm specialises in raising capital for small, high growth businesses in the UK. Set up by a highly respected former CEO of a major UK football club, the firm set out to invest into opportunities that they perceived would grow quickly and result in an IPO relatively quickly. The plan has worked exceptionally well and they are now experiencing significant deal flow.
The team is supported by a number of Analysts who conduct the relevant due-diligence on the transaction opportunity but would be benefit from a Manager who can provide hands-on guidance in steering each deal to completion. The Head of Corporate Finance is stretched too thin to be able to continue to win new deals and mentor the team.
Your role will be to work closely with the Head of Corporate Finance to win new transactions ensuring that pitch books & presentations are completed to a very high standard, that the work is allocated effectively within the team and that the every aspect of the transaction is completed to the client's complete satisfaction
The firm is looking for a grafter. Someone who loves working on deals and readying themselves for the next one. You will wear many hats: you will pore over details like an accountant, negotiate like a lawyer, engage like a banker and focus on winning new business in a truly entrepreneurial spirit.
The firm has a very flexible approach provided the team is meeting its commitments. You will not be working all hours or being forced to cancel your personal life to complete a deal.
Bonuses are generous provided the whole team is pulling together to complete the deals. There is also an opportunity to gain equity in the business as well as Carried Interest in the fund.
