M&A Advisory - Senior Analyst


Location: Melbourne

Job Type: Full time


Imagine yourself thriving in an innovative and supportive environment, building your M&A experience whilst advising a diverse range of clients on some of their most important decisions – whether it be a founder selling their “life’s work”, or an executive team making a career-defining acquisition. Are you in?

About the Team

We are M&A Advisors – we provide tailored M&A advice to ensure our clients pursue and successfully complete the transactions that are right for them.

Our M&A Advisory team works directly with shareholders, founders and C-suite executives throughout the entire M&A lifecycle to deliver advice on every aspect of a transaction, from initial valuation guidance, through financial and strategic analysis, to finding and negotiating with the right counterparties. We do this across a wide range of transactions including acquisitions, divestments, recapitalisations and capital raisings.

We are a group of high-calibre professionals led by a diverse leadership team who are supportive and collaborative. We execute some of Australia’s most interesting transactions across entrepreneur-backed and family-owned businesses, private equity, and corporate Australia.

We are also a global team – working on cross-border deals with multi-disciplinary teams – allowing our people to build wide networks across the world’s largest professional services firm.

What will your typical day look like?

This opportunity will see you working directly with market-leading M&A advisors to support with:

  • Execution of exciting deals with clients including international and national corporations, emerging companies, private businesses and private equity firms, across a range of industry sectors including healthcare, consumer business, technology, financial services, manufacturing, etc.

  • Delivery of deal documents such as strategy papers, information memoranda, management presentations, valuation analysis, purchaser co-ordination, and taking responsibility for preparation of information for client/bidder/stakeholder communications

  • Preparation of valuation support materials including financial modelling, DCF analysis, comparable companies, precedent transactions and integrated operating models

  • Overall management of due diligence processes including responsibility for the data room and Q&A process

  • End-to-end project management of transactions including direct liaison with vendors/bidders/boards and other deal stakeholders

Enough about us, let’s talk about you.

You are someone, who:

  • Has a structured thinking style with excellent analytical and financial skills to support complex transactions

  • Has demonstrated interest in M&A – you are intellectually curious, actively read the financial press, and have knowledge of the broader M&A deal/ transaction process

  • Can structure, draft and manage the finalisation of pitch books and other business development work to win prospective mandates

  • Has advanced MS Office skills and ideally some experience with research tools (S&P Capital IQ, etc.)

  • Is collaborative and able to develop enthusiasm and commitment from team members and share knowledge

  • Is good at developing strong and durable client relationships as well as building and maintaining effective relationships with colleagues

  • Have experience in an M&A transaction environment, which would be seen favourably but is not critical; you might be in a lead advisory or transaction services role currently, but you might also be in another professional services environment with the hunger to build a career in M&A!
